News that the former Circuit City in Blackman Township will soon be home to a national pet supply chain brought cheers and concerns from Facebook fans and online readers.
PetSmart, which sells pet food, supplies and accessories and offers pet training and adoption services, has started renovation at 1511 Boardman Road.
Circuit City has been closed for about three years.
Several Facebook fans, like Jenny, were excited to see this major retailer come to Jackson:
“Awesome more jobs for the people of Jackson! I was born and raised in Jackson but now live in Kansas. We live very close to Petsmart and I love our store! All of the staff is very helpful!”
“Awesome, I hope they are able to soehow work with the Cascades Humane Society to promote pet adoption!” Heather said. “The PetSmart near me (Kalamazoo) does adoption events often. It’s great!”
