Before The Pet Place, there was Pet Prints, a photography business that specialized in photographing animals in the Bay Area in their natural surroundings with natural lighting. In 1992 the pet supply store in Menlo Park that is now The Pet Place was sold to Marc and Lynn Macy who later expanded the store and doubled its’ size. However, The Pet Place is not only a place to buy a range of pet supplies; it’s also a resource center for people looking for all kinds of information to help care for their pet.

The Pet Place is determined to provide the best customer service to any person or animal that comes in. Not only do they keep the store visually familiar with the newest supplies in the same place for people to recognize, Marc handpicked an extensive collection of CDs to create a comfortable atmosphere while in the store.

“It’s a total labor of love,” Marc said. “We make sure we make it comfortable when people come in.”
