The store’s last day is scheduled for June 24.

Unfortunate news for pet owners in northern Ashburn. The mini-Petco store next to the Whole Foods at the Belmont Chase shopping center is closing permanently.

Close out sale signs already cover the windows and staff members say the last day is scheduled for June 24. Fortunately, we are told many of the employees will be transferring to the Petco store at the Dulles 28 Centre (by Wegmans) in Sterling.

The store was technically part of Petco’s “Unleashed” brand — smaller size stores catering just to dog and cat owners, meant to fit into smaller shopping centers.

Fortunately, all is not lost. As The Burn reported Tuesday, a new pet boutique called Dog Krazy is planning on opening in the nearby Village at Leesburg center. No word yet what will replace Petco at Belmont Chase.

    Petco and Banfield, the 7-Eleven of veterinary medicine. Good bye.

      Banfield is PetSmart, not Petco.

    this was a really nice store with very helpful staff. I’m sad to see it go.

    Maybe another fast casual restaurant can move in and make the dismal parking situation there even worse!

    That shopping center gets an F for parking design. I live close but every time I attempt to go to any store/restaurant, I’m reminded of why I don’t shop because of the lack of parking in certain areas. And all the people that use that to cut through because of the horrible timing light. I don’t know how BOS/Loudoun county allowed that design…..
