In November, GM lamented that Petco’s new Unleashed store underneath the Safeway was making a lot of the same mistakes that CVS used to make in terms of blocking up the street windows. Well, not that GM thinks he had anything to do with it, but Petco has recently taken down the walls blocking the window, as you can see above.
This follows CVS’s own move last spring to open up the view into their Georgetown stores. These moves dramatically improve the feel of the sidewalk. Also, GM speculates that it makes it a lot more likely that people will come in off the street when they can actually see into the store from the outside.
So huzzah to Petco for seeing the light.
