Portland, OR (PRWEB) - Nature's Pet Franchising announces the opening of its 10th Nature's Pet Market store located in Salem, OR. The store's official grand opening celebration will be held on September 11th and 12th, and becomes the 10th Nature's Pet Market to open and 4th to open during 2010. Other stores opened so far in 2010 include: Eugene (OR), Kirkland (WA), and Nine Mile Falls (WA). More stores are scheduled to open before the end of the year.
"We are very excited to see such tremendous growth in this economy," says Nature's Pet Franchising President Mike Seitz. "Celebrating Salem's Grand Opening gets us one step closer to our mission of bringing quality natural pet food and supplies to every household in the Pacific Northwest."
The new Salem location marks a shift in focus of Nature's Pet Market stores to include grooming and other pet-related services within the same establishment. "In an effort to create more of a one-stop shopping and service experience, franchisees are being strongly encouraged to include add-on services," says Seitz.
The 10th location was opened by franchisee Terri Ellen, and is located at 4555 Liberty Road S., Suite 130, Salem, OR 97302 in the Sunnyslope Shopping Center situated in the South Salem neighborhood.
The Pacific Northwest's first natural pet food and supplies franchise system, Nature's Pet Market has become one of the most recognized names in its industry in Oregon and Washington. Nature's Pet Market stores offer one of the largest selections of all natural pet food, raw food, treats, and accessories. Nature's Pet Franchising operates 10 franchised and pet retail locations. Expansion plans will make Nature's Pet Market the 3rd largest pet specialty retail chain in the Pacific Northwest by the end of 2011 behind Petco® and PetSmart®. The Company is based in Portland.
