Press release: Feeders Pet Supply

Feeders Pet Supply recently announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Phydeaux Pet Shops. This acquisition accelerates Feeders Pet Supply’s growth and expansion. With the recent announcement of their new Tennessee location, North Carolina
will mark the sixth state for Feeders Pet Supply stores.

“I am excited to welcome Phydeaux to the Feeders Pet Supply family,” said Brannon Dixon, CEO, Feeders Pet Supply. “North Carolina is a great extension for us to enter and expand. We look forward to delivering quality products and becoming a trusted partner in the Triangle.”

Phydeaux is a trio of independently owned pet supply stores in Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and Cary, North Carolina. Opened in the fall of 2002, they have been named the Triangle’s favorite pet supply stores for the past 16 years by the Independent Weekly’s annual Best of the Triangle survey.

“It’s tough to walk away from the business that I started 20 years ago,” said Frank Papa, founder of Phydeaux. “I’m proud of how it’s grown, and know that the associates and customers will be in great hands with Feeders Pet Supply.”

This marks the third major acquisition for Feeders Pet Supply as they acquired Chow Hound Pet Supplies and IncrediPet Pet Store in the last eight years. Feeders Pet Supply offers same-day local delivery, free in-store pickup, and AutoOrders set to your own schedule of nearly 10,000 items including pet food, supplies, toys, and treats. In addition to a robust loyalty program where customers can earn free pet food and points towards reward coupons.

Since 1988, the company has partnered with more than 30 local pet-rescue organizations to assist with pet adoption events in-store.
