PHOENIX, Oct. 18, 2021 — PetSmart, the leading pet specialty retailer, is pleased to announce the reopening of the Lake Charles, La. location on Saturday, Oct. 23. After suffering significant roof and structural damage and closing for repairs from Hurricane Laura last summer, the Lake Charles store, located at 3130 E.

“Hurricane Laura was devastating to our community and like so many we have been rebuilding to show the resiliency of our town and to be able to support pet parents in the surrounding area,” said Chuck Paul, Regional Vice President, Retail Operations – South. “We are excited to reopen and provide new toys, products and treats for pets along with the same great products and services we have in the past to continue to serve pet parents and do anything for pets.”
To welcome customers back to the store, PetSmart is hosting an all-day reopening event on Saturday, Oct. 23 where pet parents can visit and bring their four-legged friends to join in the fun.
