Pandemic Forces Shutdown of Pet Valu Locations in Reston

Pet Valu, a retailer of pet food and supplies, is closing its operations, including its two Reston location,

Both locations along with the company’s 358 stores in the United States will close over the next several days, the company announced earlier this week.

Canada locations will remain open, which are run by separate service that simply licenses its names and contracts from Pet Valu. Pet Valu has locations at 1442 North Point Village Center and 11160 South Lakes Drive.

Jamie Gould, the company’s Chief Restructuring Officer, attributed the closure to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Pet Valu U.S. team is proud to have met the needs of our devoted pet lover customers in the U.S. for more than 25 years. However, the Company’s stores have been significantly impacted by the protracted COVID-19-related restrictions. After a thorough review of all available alternatives, we made the difficult but necessary decision to commence this orderly wind down,” she said.

Customers can continue to shop at the stores, but orders can no longer be placed online.
