      > Dear Mr. Gardner,
      > Thank you for including PETCO in your correspondence attempting to sway
      > the outcome of property where the Charlestown Caf� currently operates.
      > It is obvious that you have a passion for the community.
      > PETCO shares that same passion for every community where we have a
      > store. In our West Seattle store, we employ 20 associates, some of whom
      > have been with us for 20 years and in fact, our store has been there for
      > just as long. In addition to all the services we offer pets such as
      > grooming, photography, low cost vaccinations and obedience training, we
      > host field trips for area school children and have helped countless
      > animals find new adoptive families through our partnerships with Perfect
      > Pals and Greyhound Pets. The location of our current store is no longer
      > an option for us as that property owner sold the parking lot and it
      > doesn't meet code for retail any longer.
      > We've not signed a lease for any new properties yet; we only know we'll
      > be moving. We have no say as to what the landlord of the caf� does with
      > the property.
      > Again, we respect and appreciate your passion for the future of a
      > restaurant you obviously care a great deal about. Regardless of where
      > our store moves to, we hope you understand our connection and commitment
      > to the communities where our store and our associates live. We strive to
      > enrich the lives of pets and their families and to strengthen the
      > human/animal bond.
      > Sincerely,
      > Michele S.
