Petco, now open at Oak Tree Plaza in Egg Harbor Township, plans a ribbon-cutting, pet adoptions and giveaways next weekend.

EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP — Residents have a new place to shop for and with their furry companions.

Petco, a pet-supply retail chain with more than 1,500 locations in the U.S. and Mexico, is now open in Oak Tree Plaza at Black Horse Pike and Fire Road. The company will showcase the new store during a grand opening celebration next weekend, according to a news release.

The store will host a ribbon-cutting at 8:55 a.m. March 10, and the first 100 Pals members will receive a $10 Petco gift card. The event will also feature pet adoptions and giveaways. On March 11, the first 50 Pals will receive a free tote bag.

Later on in the month, the store will host a Healthy Pets Party. Held the weekend of March 24 and 25, the party will include a meet and greet with the store’s dog trainers and groomers, and participants will receive a free vaccination package voucher for one pet per household and a free dog-grooming consultation.
