Burton’s Total Pet is closing our doors after 26 years in the Pittsburgh community. All of our remaining inventory is currently 25% off.
This is difficult for me to write. For the last 26 years, our pet stores have been dedicated to helping people care for their pets. I’ve always stressed to our employees, from the day that we opened in 1993, that the pet always comes first. I’ll post a longer letter to our customers in the next week explaining our decision to close our remaining three stores.
For now, I’ll just say that I desperately wanted to find a way to adjust our business model to accommodate an increasingly niche market. Unfortunately the more I studied the current marketplace, the more I realized that we were fighting a losing battle. It was just time to move on.
We are selling off our remaining inventory at 25% off. We have lots of product left in the stores. Foods are going fast, but we still have cat litters, safe salt for winter, lots of new and used aquarium equipment (includes some RO equipment), toys, and flea products. On behalf of all the staff at Burton’s Total Pet, thank you for your support.
