NEW CASTLE — PetSmart has broken ground at the Union Square Shopping Center in Union Township.

Linda Farris, Union Township zoning officer, said developers have taken out permits for a 13,000-square-foot structure that will be a full-service store with dog grooming, training and products. An estimated $1,111,000 will be spent on the building, she said.

The building will be located on THF Realty property in the  shopping Center that contains Walmart.

PetSmart will be in the area in front of the Staples and Dollar Tree stores. That ground is currently fenced off and the builders have begun to level ground.

Farris said stormwater problems had been resolved and the building permit was issued.

She said she anticipates that construction will be completed and the business will open before Christmas.

PetSmart, based in Phoenix, is a full service pet-friendly store. It not only sells pet supplies and food, but offers boarding facilities for cats and dogs, as well as doggy day camps, pet training and pet adoption services.
