The pet store industry supplies pet owners and prospective pet parents with the tools that are required to keep and care for all manner of pet. Pet stores provide pets, pet food, toys, accessories and enclosures. Some pet stores also provide services like pet grooming and pet sitting. Pet stores are similar to other specialty stores with many products to choose from. Stores are typically owned and run by managers and staff with pet industry knowledge. Many pet stores operate under national brands like PetSmart, PetCo and Pet Supplies Plus but family owned and operated single location and multi-location pet stores continue to thrive in communities all over the world.

Operating a pet store requires a central location within a community. Some stores offer online purchasing and delivery as an additional convenience. Other pet stores operate exclusively online. These exclusively web-based pet stores often specialize in unique items that are difficult to access as demand is limited. Web based ordering is common as an offering for local pickup at an in-town location. Pet stores are typically staffed with managers, stock laborers, department specialists like groomers and cashiers. These enterprises often run using on premise software and software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology. Such applications offer inventory records, employee management, point of sale, online ordering, billing, invoicing and pet payments.
