About Pet Expo

Mankato Pet Supplies Since 1987

Enjoy a unique shopping experience for both you and your pet! Pet Expo is the largest full-line pet store in Southern Minnesota with over 28,000 square feet and more than 20,000 different items. Pet Expo is independently owned and locally operated. We feature Dog & Cat, Small Animal, Tame Bird, Aquatic, and Wild Bird departments! We also have a grooming salon (Vanity Fur - now 2 locations) on site.  In addition, we have added a brand new Kid's Corner stocked with gifts you cannot resist! Each department is fully staffed with friendly pet specialists to answer all your pet care needs!

At Pet Expo, it is our goal to welcome every customer into our growing family of friends. Our likable staff is encouraged to appreciate every furry friend (and their owner) on an individual basis, knowing many of them by name! At Pet Expo, we pride ourselves on loyal customer service. Our knowledgeable staff is kept current with the latest industry trends and is eager to answer any pet related question. Pet Expo has the largest variety of pet food and supplies and will always strive for the lowest possible price for our customer!

Throughout our many years in business, the Pet Expo family has had the opportunity to travel across America as well as Canada and Europe to be trained by top professionals in the fields of Pet Nutrition and Pet Care. 

Since Opening in 1987, Pet Expo has benefited from only having two Store Managers, while continuously attaining a set of highly qualified and well educated staff members trained to work hard for every one of the needs of our customers.

The future is now for the Pet Expo Family! We concluded the construction of our latest facility, “The Paw." The Paw has become our most recent tool in accommodating every four-legged friend in the greater-Mankato area! Enjoy the 400 gallon, fully stocked aquarium for our cat friends. Or, with a push of a button, utilize a 36ft dock adjoining the vast doggy pool for our canine friends.  The Paw is on the cutting edge of design featuring state-of-the-art accommodations and facilities! With grooming (Vanity Fur), premium dog/cat boarding, training, pool sessions, and doggie daycare we are sure to satisfy your dog or cat's every need!

Coming in the summer of 2017, we will again be expanding our business family in Mankato with the opening of a brand new Motel 6 located next to the Paw on Highway 22.  Our word to you,

“We will leave the light on for you.”
