Pets N Such going out of business

Pets N Such in Amelia is going out of business and will close its doors for the last time Aug. 30.

In business for more than 20 years, Pets N Such owners Diane and Cameron Beaty struggled with the decision, but due to a “lagging” economy and competition from the larger retail stores, felt that the time was right to close.

“It’s a very sad day for us,” Diane Beaty said at the pet store Aug. 2. “My husband and I always wanted to own a business, and do something that was close to our hearts, so we chose pets.”

Diane and Cameron Beaty said that the decision to close the 6,000 square feet pet store was a very tough one to make because they have dedicated their lives to the business for the last 23 years.
