Pet Food Express chain store has its day

The long journey of chain store Pet Food Express to open up a third location in San Francisco came to a close Tuesday. The chain store, with 34 locations throughout the Bay Area, will open for business at 3150 California St., filling up a space left vacant by Hollywood Video.

The Board of Supervisors voted 6-5 Tuesday to approve an appeal of a special permit that allows the chain store to open up in Laurel Heights. But that was two votes shy of the required eight votes needed to overturn the issuance of such a permit. Those appealing the permit said the business would price out similar businesses in the area.

So after years of trying, which included a rejection by the city to open up a third location in the Marina, Pet Food Express founder Michael Levy has found a home after all.

Supervisors John Avalos, David Campos, David Chiu, Chris Daly, Eric Mar and Ross Mirkarimi voted to reject the permit, but failed to do so.
