Pet World started out in 1976, located in a 900-square-foot store near the Old Times Theatre in Danville, IL. Our original name was Fish World, as we sold only fish at that time, and we had just one employee.
About a year and a half later, we added pets and pet supplies, and changed our name to Pet World. Eight years later, we moved into a 3200-square-foot store. Here we added hobbies, and changed our name to Pet & Hobby World.
In 1994, we built our own building of 6000-square-feet and moved to 3700 North Vermilion, which remains our current location. This move gave us all of the room that we needed to expand.
In the early part of 2002, we sadly closed our hobby departments, and changed our name back to Pet World.
In 2009, we launched our e-commerce website, making over 12,000 of the pet supply products that we carry available to the entire world. We remain committed to our excellent customer service, whether it be face-to-face in our brick-and-mortar store, or electronically via the Internet.
We strive to sell quality pet supply products at very competitive prices. We work very hard to stock products that work and have good value for our customers.
We're here for you! ™
