A Special Announcement to our Greenwich Customers

Horizontal 2.jpg

Dear Greenwich Customers,

On November 14th, 2017, the Connecticut State Siting Council ruled in favor of Eversource's proposal to build a substation on the property located at 290 Railroad Ave in Greenwich, CT. As a result of this ruling, this unfortunately means that the flagship location of Pet Pantry Warehouse in Greenwich will be closing its doors on December 31st, 2017.  

This has been a very difficult process for us as a company to handle. Not only did we lose sleep over how to best to navigate these difficult times, but also, to make sure that we can care for you, our loyal customers and your loving pets. We are deeply saddened by this turn of events and we would like to thank all of our loyal customers and Greenwich residents who have stood by and supported us for all of these years. For over 72 years, Pet Pantry Warehouse has had the privilege of serving the Greenwich community, its people, and its pets.

"When one door closes, another one opens"

Fortunately, the Pet Pantry Warehouse has continued to flourish and expand over the years. We have two locations in close proximity that are ready to receive you and supply your pets' needs!  Our newest location in Riverside, CT (1191 East Putnam Ave) is waiting to welcome you, as is our 2nd location in Rye, NY (259 Purchase St).

Please stop in, show your support, and celebrate the holiday season with us at or our Greenwich location through the month of December! We will, however, be making a few changes to begin this transition. As of Monday 11/27, our store hours will be adjusted to reflect the same times as our other locations:

Monday-Friday:  9am-7pm

Saturday:  9am-6pm

Sunday:  10am-6pm

In addition, we will no longer be able to carry particular product categories, simply due to space restrictions in our other locations.  These will include all live animals and "Nutrena" brand farm feed.  Fish, reptile, small mammal, pet bird, and wild bird supplies will still be available in limited selections in our other locations.  However, these will still be available to you via special orders at any time.

From the bottom of our hearts, we want everyone in the Greenwich community and beyond to know how special this community is to us. We feel very lucky to have the opportunity to carry the torch in additional nearby locations, and look forward to serving you for another 72 years and beyond.

"The Rye location (like Larchmont and all the others) of this six-store family-owned pet paradise is all about happy, healthy cats and dogs — and satisfied customers, too. You won’t find supermarket pet foods full of toxic dyes and roadkill but high-line brands like Orijen, Acana, and Fromm, plus a fabulous selection of wholesome treats, interesting toys, grooming products, beds, and more." - Westchester Magazine


Greenwich Time - Pet Pantry opens second Greenwich shop

By Macaela J. Bennett

It took just a second while his owner was distracted for Romeo, a golden retriever who lives with his family in Greenwich, to sniff and snatch a treat from Pet Pantry’s wide array of bones Friday afternoon.

Construction of Pet Pantry Warehouse’s second Greenwich location has finished just in time for the dog days of summer with its opening two weeks ago. But staff is still perfecting their product placement so it’s always at least nose-distance from impatient shoppers.

The new Riverside shop, situated just off exit 5, encompasses roughly 3,500 square feet of selling space. The size means it offers less inventory than the independent pet shop’s downtown Greenwich location on Railroad Avenue, but the store serves as an example of how Pet Pantry plans to style its shops moving forward, co-owner Adam Jacobson said.

“Our other (Greenwich store) is 15,000 square feet,” Jacobson. “This is a more intimate, neighborhood concept.”

Unlike Pet Pantry’s downtown shop, its Riverside one will not sell live animals, though it will provide support for them, and it won’t have equine or livestock feed. Riverside customers can order those items from other Pet Pantry stores to be picked up in Riverside, Jacobson said.

Riverside is Pet Pantry’s sixth location, with others in New Canaan, Wilton, Larchmont, N.Y., and Rye, N.Y. A seventh location is slated to open in Eastchester, N.Y., later this year, Jacobson said. “We aim to pocket ourselves in strong, local communities,” he said of the expansion.

For the most part, the Riverside shop that had its grand opening delayed by six months is complete, Jacobson said. That’s with the exception of an upcoming self-serve pet wash that will cost customers $10 for a 15-minute shower for which Pet Pantry will provide shampoo and towels, he added. With the Riverside shop’s proximity to Tod’s Point where “dogs often go mucking around,” he anticipates it will become a popular service that is also set to be installed in the New Canaan shop.

For the family-owned company that’s entrenched itself in the Greenwich community, Jacobson said he also hopes to use the self-serve pet wash as a “fundraising vehicle.”

“We’re fully invested in this community,” Jacobson said. “We’re one of the longest-standing independent retailers in town. We’ve been here for so many life cycles, and we’re connected to the community through emotional bonds.”

To maintain its market hold against online retailers, Pet Pantry will continue to “evolve its business model” to focus on working with smaller manufacturers and “products with a point of view,” Jacobson said. Between the nutritionally focused products it sells and the training of Pet Pantry’s staff, the co-owner believes his retail business can withstand challenges from e-commerce.

The two-story building Pet Pantry built and owns also includes several apartments on its second floor. The location is the former site of an Asian-fusion restaurant called Baang Cafe & Bar, which closed in 2014. Jacobson began eyeing the site in 2015, and though it’s a heavily trafficked area with its proximity to the interstate, he said he’s happy with how it will help serve customers on that side of town. “It helps us further entrench ourselves in the community,” he said.
