PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–With Christmas only four days away and the window closing for guaranteed
home delivery, PetSmart today announced the launch of a new retail day –

shopping season to buy online and fetch it ourselves through easy
in-store pick up, assuring last-minute shoppers will have gifts under
the tree in time for Christmas.

To celebrate, all day on Dec. 23, PetSmart will offer 10 percent off
shoppers’ entire online purchase when they select the in-store pick-up
option. Shoppers can pick up that day, or on Dec. 24, giving them time
to wrap and place the gifts under the tree for all family members
including our best friends – the family pets.

“Dec. 23 is a busy shopping day for so many, and National Fetch It Day,
aptly named because shoppers fetch their own online purchased goods, is
a great way to get last-minute gift shopping complete,” said Eran Cohen,
Chief Customer Experience Officer, PetSmart. “This option truly offers
the best of both worlds for our pet parents – the convenience of
shopping online from home or while on-the-go via a mobile device and
then simply swinging by any one of our conveniently located 1,440-plus
stores across U.S. to pick up their gifts just in time to place under
the tree.”

Don’t forget your best friends for the holidays. PetSmart has expanded
its holiday line of treats including the classic holiday cut-out frosted
cookie treats, as well as a broader range of seasonal flavorings
including Prime Rib, Honey Roasted Ham, Dolce Latte, Holiday Spice,
Peppermint Bark and Cinnamon – even peanut butter-flavored lumps of
coal, all perfect for stuffing the stocking. Also available is a range
of festive costumes, apparel and accessories to get your pet photo-ready
for Christmas Day. From Santa costumes and reindeer antlers to this
season’s popular plaidict-loving fashions, metallic bow-tie collars and
ugly sweaters, the family pets will be poised to steal the spotlight.
Plus, it’s no surprise toys are the most sought after gifts offering
immediate play time and enjoyment for the pet and pet parent. PetSmart
has an expansive holiday toy selection with classic squeakers like the
Sock Monkey and red and green Peeps® toys; for cats, festive tinsel,
tulle balls and Purina® Friskies® Pull ‘n Play Cat Treat Play Packs are
sure to deliver hours of toss-around fun perfect for Christmas morning.

PetSmart offers a range of great gifts for the every family member.
Small animals and fish make great starter pets and there is a wide range
of aquariums, habitats and starter kits online from which to choose such
as the Critter Trail, a build-it-yourself trail system perfect for dwarf
hamsters. Some exclusions apply to the National Fetch It Day offer.
