WARREN, NJ — Pet Valu, a specialty pet food and supplies retailer, has announced it will shutter all 358 of its U.S. stores, including locations in Gillette and Warren.. 

Jamie Gould, Pet Valu’s recently appointed chief restructuring officer, said in a news release that the company’s stores “have been significantly impacted by the protracted COVID-19-related restrictions.”

“After a thorough review of all available alternatives, we made the difficult but necessary decision to commence this orderly wind down,” she said.
