Unleashed by Petco is unloading its pet supplies as store is closing on 2nd Avenue



After two-plus years at 31-33 Second Ave., the Unleashed by Petco shop is shutting its doors.

Sale — Nothing held back! — signs are up in the windows, as this photo by EVG reader EJ show. An employee said that Jan. 23 is their last day here between Second Street and Third Street in the retail space of the East Luxe rental building. Not sure at the moment why this Unleashed is closing.

The specialty retailer of pet food, supplies and services opened here in August 2015.

The San Diego-based retailer operates more than 1,500 stores in the United States under the Petco and Unleashed by Petco names.

Developer Ben Shaoul bought this property for $5.6 million in 2011. He later added three floors to the existing building … then unloaded it for $29 million to real-estate investor Sunny Yung.

New Petco ready to be Unleashed on Aug. 31



The signs are up in the retail space at 31-33 Second Ave., aka The Luxe East, where an Unleashed (by Petco) outlet has been in the works.

Signs on the door now point to an Aug. 31 opening here between East Second Street and East First Street...



What is Unleashed?

As pet stores go, we’re anything but ordinary. Unleashed by Petco hit the pet scene in 2009, with our first store in San Diego’s Hillcrest neighborhood. Our concept is simple – provide the same knowledge and know-how offered by Petco in a unique, smaller package.

This location will also include dog training…

Pet store signage unleashed on Second Avenue



EVG reader Christina passes along photos of the new signage that has arrived at 31-33 Second Ave., aka The Luxe East, Ben Shaoul's new retail-residential complex here between East Second Street and East First Street...

As you can see the storefront will be an Unleashed (by Petco) outlet...

Anyway, perhaps the storefront will help residents determine whether they are looking at the front or the back of the building.

BoweryBoogie first reported that a Petco-branded store was set for the retail space.
