About Chico Pet Shops

After 32 years of existence, Chico has succeeded in expanding to form a chain of more than 16 stores, while still retaining the friendly, family atmosphere of a neighbourhood pet store, the principal value of the company. Chico pet shops form the largest chain of complete pet stores in Quebec. They offer pet owners a full range of food, accessories, toys and services to take care of your dog, cat, bird, fish, reptile or rodent. You can count on Chico to stock the most reputable brands at very competitive prices!

A bit of history

1984

The adventure began! Pierre Charbonneau and Michel Joly opened their first pet shop on Taschereau Boulevard in Brossard.

1991

Pierre Charbonneau opened his first store in Montreal, on Ontario Street.

2007

Michel Joly opened another Chico store on Wellington Street in Verdun. The two stores were highly successful for several years!

2008

Until then a part-time employee, Mr. José Forest formed a partnership with Pierre Charbonneau; he became a franchisee of the company, inaugurating the Chico store on Masson Street in Montreal.

Your neighborhood shop for 32 years already!

''In high density areas, people want to patronize a pet store close to home, receive personalized service, and learn and obtain advice from skilled employees who over time get to know the local customers. This is a more user-friendly shopping experience than the big chains, and with competitive prices.''

José Forest, co-owner
