PETCO will throw open its doors to pets and pet-lovers at the grand opening of the new Quincy store located at 169 Parkingway in Quincy, MA, on Saturday and Sunday, June 2 and 3, 2001.
The weekend's festivities will kick off on Saturday at 9 am with the ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the Mayor of Quincy, James A. Sheets. Pet owners are encouraged to bring in their furry friends for professional pet photography, obedience training info and low-cost vaccination info.

A Best Pet Tricks Contest, the Rain Forest Reptile show and a face painting clown will round out the weekend's events.
