Unleashed By Petco Closing

Unleashed By Petco, located at 159 Columbus Avenue (between 67th and 68th Streets, will be closing on July 18th, a store manager has confirmed.

The manager wasn’t able to disclose why the store is closing or provide any additional info, but one of our readers was reportedly told by a staff member that the lease is expiring and the landlord has increased the rent to an amount beyond what they can realistically pay.

We’ve reached out to Petco’s press department to see if they could confirm the above with us. They’ve sent us the following statement:

“At Petco, we’re constantly evaluating our real estate portfolio to ensure locations are conveniently located to best serve our customers. After 10 years of service, the Unleashed by Petco location 159 Columbus Ave., New York, NY 10023 will close on July 19, 2020. We value the relationships we’ve built with pet parents in Manhattan’s Upper West Side and look forward to continuing to serve them at our other New York City and metro area stores, as well as online at petco.com.”

Unleashed By Petco is a smaller-format store which the company describes as “your nearby spot to shop for high-quality, wag-worthy goods and services for dogs and cats.”

For those who want to stock up for their pets before they close, Unleashed By Petco is currently open daily from 10am to 7pm, offering a 10% discount when you order online and use curbside pickup. Here’s the location’s website.
