The Pet Pantry Warehouse is an independent, family owned retailer founded in 1945 in Greenwich, CT.
We dish out the good stuff...
The history of the Pet Pantry Warehouse began in 1945 with World War II Army Air Forces servicemen, Mort Davis and Jac Cohen. The pair formed their alliance over a British puppy adopted by Davis while stationed in wartime England. After accomplishing a stateside transfer for the lucky pup, the two remained friends, joining forces in the pet food business. Davis passed away in the late ‘60s, but Cohen soldiered on with their enterprise through 1995, when the business was purchased by Barry Jacobson and his sons Adam and Ari, who run the business today.
When the business was re-conceived in 1995, the large warehouse space which was home to the original Pet Pantry was converted into a more modern shopping experience and a new business model was born.
The success of the reformatted Greenwich location paved the way for additional locations in Rye, NY in 2006, Larchmont, NY, in 2011. A fourth location in New Canaan, CT, opened in late 2013 along with another store in neighboring Wilton, CT. The options for a convenient local shopping experience continue to grow with our sixth location currently under construction in Riverside, CT.
As a local, family run business we understand the importance of giving back to the communities in which we operate.
