“We asked pet parents about their holiday shopping plans and 25 percent said they will shop for their pets on Black Friday,” said PetSmart CEO David Lenhardt. “Overall, we know that about 76 percent of pet parents plan to give their pet a special treat or present for the holidays, and more than half plan to get their pet a holiday stocking.”
