Wichita-Area All Paws Pet Center Shops Become Chuck & Don’s Pet Food & Supplies Stores October 1


Minnesota-based company rebrands three stores acquired from All Paws Pet Center; stores introduce new name but will include the same team, more food options

 

MAHTOMEDI, MINNESOTA — SEPTEMBER 24, 2018 — Chuck & Don’s, a destination pet-supplies store with excellent customer experience and a wide selection of products, has completed its rebranding of the three Wichita-area All Paws Pet Center stores the company acquired in January 2018. The three stores will officially open as Chuck & Don’s locations on October 1. These are the first Chuck & Don’s locations in Kansas.

The new Chuck & Don’s stores are located at: 1444 N. Maize, Wichita; 2244 N. Greenwich Rd., Wichita; and 1821 E. Madison, Derby. The three Kansas stores bring the company’s growing footprint to 44 total stores, which includes 30 in Minnesota, 10 in Colorado and one in Wisconsin.

Chuck & Don’s COO/CFO Thomas Murphy said the Wichita market is a solid fit for the company’s expansion and cited an admiration for All Paws Pet Center, given similar philosophies between the companies toward providing high-quality pet products, knowledgeable and caring staff as well as a strong history in forging partnerships with local pet rescue and adoption agencies.

“Wichita is a great pet town and we are thrilled for this opportunity to be a part of this community and continue to build on the great legacy established by All Paws Pet Center,” said Murphy. “Pet families of Wichita can continue to expect the same foods and products and the same friendly, knowledgeable team of employees who are passionate about helping pet families and their companions.”

As part of the acquisition, Chuck & Don’s retained all current All Paws Pet Center employees, including minority owners David and Pat Lebus. All Paws Pet Center company co-founder, Paul Baumann, also became a Board Member of Chuck & Don’s.

Chuck & Don’s offers brand name and specialty pet foods and supplies for dogs and cats. Each location welcomes customers and their leashed pets to experience outstanding customer service, knowledgeable, pet-loving staff and high-quality product offerings. The three Wichita-area locations also offer self-service pet wash tubs and dryers.

The company also hosts many in-store events, including puppy playtimes, educational presentations — such as nail trimming demonstrations — as well as pet donation days in partnership with local rescue organizations. Event calendar listings for each of the new stores will be posted online at https://chuckanddons.com.

In addition to its brick-and-mortar stores, Chuck & Don’s continues to expand its in-store pickup and home delivery services. Information for these services is online at: www.chuckanddonsdelivers.com.
