Commission to vote on allowing a chain pet store to open up shop in the Marina

As the Examiner reported back in August, a chain pet supply store’s plan to move into the Marina district is being fought against by pet boutique shop owners in the area.

On Thursday, the Planning Commission is scheduled to vote on whether to grant the pet store a special permit required for a chain store to open for business in that location. Planning staff has recommended not approving the permit.

San Francisco-based Pet Food Express has applied to open up a third city location in The City at Lombard and Divisadero streets. The business wants to move in to 7,000 square-feet of space once occupied by a Blockbuster store. The smaller boutique shops say the chain store would jeopardize their businesses.
