PetSmart is set to open a second Cedar Rapids location.

Westdale Mall has announced on their website that the pet store chain has signed a lease for a new building east of Younkers near the development's 29th Avenue entrance.

PetSmart, described in the announcement as the national's largest specialty pet retailer, sells pet foods, products, and offers services like training, grooming, and adoptions.

Lisa Rowe, Vice President of Retail and Westdale General Manager, says

“PetSmart will be a valuable addition to Westdale Mall as well as to Southwest side of Cedar Rapids and the surrounding communities... We are very happy to welcome PetSmart to Westdale Mall and further add to expanding retail mix of the Westdale Redevelopment.”

The Westdale Mall PetSmart is expected to open sometime during the latter half of 2017. Michael Price, assistant store manager of the Collins Road PetSmart in Cedar Rapids, tells me that location has been open since 2005.
