Unleashed by Petco will be closing its Downtown Silver Spring location permanently, according to a sales representative we spoke to earlier today. Unleashed, located at 8412 Georgia Avenue, will close by the weekend of January 29th.
The store first opened in 2015., according to Source of the Spring. Per Petco, Unleashed by Petco was introduced in 2009 with the opening of the first location in San Diego’s Hillcrest neighborhood. “Focusing on exceptional customer service in a fun, pet-friendly environment, Unleashed by Petco combines the personal commitment, intimacy and expertise of a neighborhood pet store with the price/value and rewards of a national retailer.”
The only other Unleashed by Petco location in MoCo can be found at the Shoppes of Olney shopping center at 3134 Olney Sandy Spring Shopping Center. A nearby location in Navy Yard (DC) is also closing, according to Popville.
The news was first mentioned by Just Up The Pike’s Dan Reed in a tweet earlier this week, nothing the “Now Open” sign in one window with the store closing sign in the other.
