The building formerly home to Men’s Wearhouse in Citrus Heights now has a new tenant, with Pet Food Express celebrating its grand opening last weekend.

Store Manager Miriya Bruzenak confirmed that the location at 6177 Sunrise Blvd. held a soft opening on June 28, but had its grand opening on July 15 and 16. During its grand opening celebration, the store offered free access to self-service pet washing stations, along with treat samples, gifts for customers, and pet adoptions.

The new pet supply store offers a wide variety of supplies including pet food, grooming supplies, pet toys and beds and cat climbing trees.

“The community has been warm and welcoming,” Bruzenak said of Citrus Heights, adding that the new location is highly visible to passersby on Sunrise Boulevard.

In honor of the grand opening of both the new Citrus Heights location and a new store in La Verne, California, Pet Food Express is offering 20 percent off all purchases online and in-store through July 31, according to the company’s website. Shoppers must use the code “grandopening.”

Pet Food Express joins two other nearby pet specialty retailers: PetSmart at 6434 Sunrise Blvd., and Ben’s Barketplace at 7935 Greenback Ln.

The former Men’s Wearhouse closed in the summer of 2020 amid parent company, Tailored Brands, filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Pet Food Express is headquartered in Oakland, California, and was founded in 1986. The company has locations in Roseville, Davis, Sacramento, and El Dorado Hills.
