There are many new opportunities and events taking place around us.

If you haven’t been over that way in a while, it would be worth checking out some of the new places.

Petco: They are expecting to open the store in the very near future. One employee noted that they were aiming for a February 22nd date for a soft opening but that may change as they continue to stock shelves. They also indicated that there would be many sales items and coupons available as they open. The store is located on New York Avenue, next to the MOM’s Organic Market.
