Pet store still open


DANVILLE — Editor:

Pet World is not closing.

There are rumors being spread that Pet World is closed, or closing.

We have no intention of closing. We have been located in Danville for 36 years. Our present location is 3700 N. Vermilion, next to Lowe’s.

We care about Danville, we care about our customers, and we care about their pets.

We work very hard to keep our customers satisfied. It is disturbing to hear our customers tell us that they heard that we are closing.

We have actually expanded our business in the past three years to include an online store at http://

It can be tough for the independent retail stores to compete with the large chain stores, but we are doing a pretty good job.

Even though, we have not received any kind of tax rebate incentives, we are here and open for business.
