        Well, it sounds like they're providing everything a groomer could ask for as far as equipment. Things like clipper vacs and shampoo systems. If the company takes care of the employees they'll probably do really well. I'll be really interested to see what their pricing is.

        The only reason I would never, ever, bring my dog to their salon would be parking. I don't know about everyone else's Walmarts, but the one here is a madhouse and you always have to walk a distance to the store with people driving like idiots.
        don't find yourself up a creek without a poodle.

          yes our walmart is like that also. our walmart wont ever have a grooming salon because petsmart is right down the strip LOL!
          at least they took into consideration that some dogs dont handle well and have provided a table out of view of the window. id just hate to see TWO groomers who each have a bad dog LOL!

              I like the air purifiers, central vacs in the floors and clipper vacs. It sounds like it's going to be a nice place to work. The closed circuit security camera on ya might be a little weird. They say their going to have pet hotels too. I feel bad though cause it seems like there trying to dominate every market.

                We have a Super Wal Mart that has a Petco on the East side of it, and a large (50 dogs a day average) shop on the West that I used to work for. That'd be a lot of competition for the West groom shop, but Pet Co is always empty.

                  We were all wondering about how they were going to do this, aha, a seperate entrance and viewing when you enter the store, sounds really nice. Now when were off work we can go watch grooming at Wally World..lol..

                          On the Feline Grooming page, they have a cat on the table with a noose on. Am I the only one who was taught to never, ever noose a cat???

                            certified??

                            when you first read it ..and it says certified i thought wow certified (like cmg) thats great, as you read further...i think they mean certified by PCS. don't the other petsomethings 'certify' their groomers after they attend the classes they offer?? for anyone who has worked at petsomething...how long is the 'training' period before you are certified??

It's the same concept as malls housing several similar stores inside or having several different fast food restaurants or gas stations on the same street.
                              Yup, we have a Petsmart and Petco right across the street from each other, so I wouldn't be suprised if they opened one near a petsomething.
