The littliest pet shop in the city of Austin is finally opening its doors to the public.
The Littlest Pet Shop, located in the Petco building at 605 West Broadway, will be open for business on Friday.
The shop will be home to a full-size pet shop, as well as pet food, pet products and pet accessories.
Owner and owner of the shop, John and Marcy Miller, said the shop will have “a lot of pet products that people can enjoy.”
Littlest Pets, a pet store in Houston, will close on Jan. 30.
The chain has been the subject of an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission for allegedly misleading consumers about pet food safety.
A spokesperson for Petco told us that Littles Pet Shop will remain open on the weekend and on the following weekend.
It’s unclear when exactly the Petstore will reopen.
A statement on the PetCo website said that “Petco’s decision is consistent with our mission to serve our customers, and our goal is to remain the trusted brand we know they will trust.”
The Petco chain, along with other retailers including Petsmart and Best Buy, have been targeted by federal regulators for alleged deceptive marketing and predatory pricing practices.
The FTC alleges that Lettlest Pet, a popular pet store chain, made deceptive claims about pet safety, claiming it was able to lower the incidence of pet allergies and asthma.
The chain also said it was not a pet health insurance provider, as some pet insurance plans were.
Petco says it is reviewing its policies.
