Pet Valu has acquired Tisol Pet Nutrition & Supply. Tisol, which was founded in 1974, has nine locations throughout the Lower Mainland, including Burnaby, Richmond, Langley, South Surrey and three locations throughout Vancouver. The transaction is expected to be completed before the end of the year. Merging with Tisol, marks the second acquisition for Pet Valu this year.
This past spring, Pet Valu further expanded into the US when the company acquired Jacks’ Pets retail chain. The Canadian retailer acquired Jack’s Pets 32-store chain in addition to its online store, petsolutions.com. With the acquisition, Jack’s Pets is closer to expanding to 100 stores in the next few years, with a focus on expanding in Ohio and neighboring states. Jack’s Pets was founded in 1950 by Jack and Margie Brenner. The retailer has locations in Western and Central Ohio, northern Kentucky and Indiana and offers supplies for cats, dogs, fish, birds and small pets.
