Sprouts & Shutters: Pet Food Express Coming To Downtown San Leandro

Pet food chain based in San Francisco will occupy the former Blockbuster site on Davis Street across from MacDonald's in the downtown shopping plaza.

 

Retail abhors a vacuum.

As if to prove that point a Pet Food Express will soon fill the downtown San Leandro storefront recently vacated by Blockbuster.

The tentative opening is May 29. The store will be located at 265 Davis Street in the downtown shopping plaza, opposite Sizzler's and MacDonald's.

Pet Food Express is based in Oakland. The chain has 45 stores throughout Northern California. Learn more about it here.

We love Pet Food Express in Alameda. Their self-serve bathing stations for dogs are so handy. Hopefully this store will offer bathing stations too.

YAY!!! So glad something reputable will move into that empty space.

My daughter works in the Alameda store so our family loves PFE! Can't wait to have one in San Leandro! As stated above maybe this is a step in attracting other quality stores like Trader Joe

Is this the same GREAT pet food company that is on Castro Valley Blvd?

It would be great if Trader Joe's came to San Leandro. I wonder how busy their stores have to get before they consider opening up another one nearby? Alameda is very unpleasant to shop at often because it is so crowded. down the aisles.

One thought I had... I wonder how this new store will impact Mike's Feed Pet store nearby on E 14th Street? It is a small, locally owned business. Perhaps they fill a different niche entirely? Or would they suffer?

Yes Agreed!!!! and Yes TRADER JOE'S please.....

Trader Joe's just isn't into San Leandro. It's really you, not TJ. Stop being Aldi's, er TJ's psycho ex girlfriend. They've looked, the city has begged, and they never ever want to be in a city like ours.
