Rogue Valley Pet
For business partners Chris Baldasaro and Terry Weathers, opening a pet store meant more than just providing products for pet owners to purchase. "Our goal is to be a resource team in the store as well as out in the Rogue Valley at large," Chris said. On October 1, 2011, the partners did just that when they opened the doors at Rogue Valley Pet located at 281 E. Barnett Rd.
Chris has a Bachelor's degree in Biology and had been in the premium pet food business for 13 years at Bend Pet Express, as a manager, trainer and buyer. "By offering consumers the highest quality pet products, knowledge, and customer service above all else, the Bend stores consequently grew in size and reputation over the course of the last decade," Chris explained.
