November 28, 2011 // // CHILLICOTHE, Ohio – Petland, Inc. is moving forward internationally, expanding its franchise borders with the recent grand opening of a new retail pet store in Netania, Israel.

Petland Israel master franchisor Sion Shamosh Hanono opened the newest international Petland on November 4, 2011.

“We are delighted with the opportunity to welcome Israel to our growing international family,” said Petland Chief Operating Officer Joe Watson.

The 2,500-square-foot store is larger than the average pet store in Israel and is full of healthy pets and a large selection of merchandise.

“The presentation of the store through fixturing, merchandising and pet selection is top notch and will provide the residents of Netanya with a unique, convenient pet shopping experience,” said Shamosh.

Petland’s founding principles of exceptional customer service, quality animal care and detailed presentation have global appeal.

“In these areas, Petland Israel will certainly make a positive impact on overall pet retail and will become a fun destination for families looking for their first pet or for supplies for their existing pets,” explained Brian Winslow, Director of Animal Welfare Education.

Shamosh is excited to bring the Petland experience to Israel and to uphold the company’s mission of matching the right pet with the right person and meeting the needs of both.

Various members of the Petland team have visited to assist with site location, pet selection, merchandise and training.
