The first Bert’s Pet Center started in 1958 by Bert Eusler in New Boston, Ohio, and was purchased by Jim and Carlene Wente in 1971. The Wentes have held onto the unique name, which the store still carries today at its 480 Russell Plaza Drive, Ashland, Kentucky location (BETWEEN LOWE’S AND THE BEST WESTERN HOTEL).
Bert’s Pet Center has now been in business for more than 60 years, making us the oldest established pet store in the Tri-State. We feel this says a lot about the area, and we believe our customers are the best!
We have been family-owned and operated from the beginning, and we feel this is our biggest asset. We aren’t governed by the rules of a franchise or chain. We go the extra mile to make sure our customers are happy and satisfied, and when they leave our store they have the knowledge to be able to care for their pets properly. We still believe customers come first. If they aren’t happy, we can’t survive! We also understand that we are not the only pet store around so we thank you, our customers, with top notch service, quality and price to show our appreciation for choosing Bert’s Pet Center for all your pet needs.
