Press release: Ren’s Pets

Ren’s Pets recently celebrated the opening of its latest retail store in Saint John, New Brunswick, this past weekend. The Canadian specialty pet retailer’s new 9,889 square foot store is located at 90 Consumers Drive by Walmart. It is the company’s 48th location, and it’s sixth store in Eastern Canada. There are already Ren’s stores in New Brunswick in Dieppe and Fredericton.

“The Maritimes are a key part of our strategy for store locations, and we’re so excited to have the doors open to a store in Saint John,” said Scott Arsenault, CEO at Ren’s Pets. “We know how passionate the pet owners are in this community, and couldn’t wait to show them the premium food, treats and toys Ren’s has for your Pet’s Best Life. Our store manager Kevin, who is from Saint John himself, did a wonderful job with his team, welcoming in all the new customers to the store on opening day.”

The Saint John store features over 8,000 products with aisles of high-quality dog and cat food, displays of treats and toys, plus a special grooming section. There are 32 feet of large walk-in freezers for raw and frozen pet food, one of the largest in the area. Customers can shop in store, order online for pick up at store, use same-day delivery powered by DoorDash or ship to home. Customers can also find Ren’s Saint John on the Flashfood app.

“Ren’s Pets is always a stop for Seb and I whenever we make trips to Moncton, and we couldn’t be more excited to see them opening here in Saint John! We were there on opening day to meet the new staff, pick up Seb’s favorite Nutrience Subzero cat food, and other raw treats that keep Seb his usual energetic, adventurous self,” said Jose Sanudo, pet parent of Seb the maine coon (IG: @sebthecoon) and frequent Ren’s shopper.

“Saint John was our first of three stores we are opening in the Maritimes this year, so it is really special to us,” said Larissa Wasyliw, vice president of e-commerce and marketing at Ren’s Pets. “We did a ribbon cutting to officially open the store, and it was a busy day with customers all day. Customers got to meet our friendly knowledgeable staff, see our amazing selection of premium pet food and supplies including our raw frozen food freezers, weigh their pets on our healthy weight scale, and try some new fun pet treats with our Bark-tender.”
