PETCO Animal Supplies will receive $3.1 million from the Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) to establish a support center in San Antonio, a $17 million capital investment that will create 400 jobs.
"After an extensive search for a facility to help us meet our long-term growth requirements, we're thrilled to select San Antonio for our new support center," PETCO CEO Jim Myers said. "The Texas Enterprise Fund, along with support from various state, county and city leaders, was an important factor in our decision. We look forward to opening the facility next year and expanding PETCO's presence as an engaged corporate citizen in San Antonio."
PETCO, a pet specialty retailer, has more than 1,000 stores in all 50 states.
