The pet specialty retailer is slated to open its first store on a military installation at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in the spring.

"Pets help military members feel at home, wherever they are assigned," said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Luis Reyes, the Exchange's senior enlisted advisor. "Having the services and convenience of Petco right on installation means healthier pets and happier pet owners."

The JBLM Petco will offer grooming services and a variety of pet supplies, food and toys. The company's 10 percent military discount will apply to all purchases, including services, at Exchange locations.

Offering name brands in-store and online is a priority for the Exchange. Petco is the latest in a series of announcements concerning national-brand introductions at Army posts and Air Force bases around the world.

"The Exchange is looking forward to expanding our partnership with Petco to serve more military communities," Reyes said.

Since 1895, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service has gone where soldiers, airmen and their families go to improve the quality of their lives by providing valued goods and services at exclusive military pricing. The Exchange is the 62nd-largest retailer in the United States. Its earnings provided $2.3 billion in dividends to support military morale, welfare and recreation programs over the last 10 years. The Exchange is a non-appropriated fund entity of the Department of Defense and is directed by a Board of Directors. The Exchange is a 50th Anniversary Vietnam War Commemorative Partner, planning and conducting events and activities that recognize the service, valor and sacrifice of Vietnam veterans and their families in conjunction with the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration.
