Construction is officially underway on Duluth's second big-box pet supply retailer.

PetSmart will call Duluth home next spring when their location opens in the last available space that was left vacant when Kmart closed their Duluth Heights location. 88,000 square feet of the space was leased to Hobby Lobby which opened their first Northern Minnesota location in the space in 2013.

PetSmart is a direct competitor of Petco, which already has a Duluth location less than a mile away in the Stone Ridge Shopping Center. PetSmart's new 25,000 square foot location will sell pet supplies along with small household pets such as rodents, snakes, amphibians, and fish, and will also include a grooming center.
