Woof! Petco, the big pet food and accessory retailer, is opening soon in DCUSA, and they're hiring! The place will be on the Irving Street side of the building, below where DSW opened.
And they're hiring! Councilmember Jim Graham posted this on local listserves.
As mentioned before, I hope this doesn't affect local businesses like Claws and Paws at 11th and Lamont (aka Mr. Larry's.)
