Hillsborough area Pet Valu will be rebranded as Pet Supplies Plus, locally owned and operated.
The new store is owned and operated by local entrepreneurs and couple Andy Sole and Denise Gianotti. Sole has more than 20 years of experience in medical device sales. Gianotti works as a director of operations for an advertising agency.

This is the couple’s first Pet Supplies Plus store, with plans to open additional locations in the future.
“I’m so excited to bring Pet Supplies Plus to the community and introduce Hillsborough neighbors to what we have to offer,” Sole said in the statement. “We are passionate about providing a quality shopping experience and offering the best products possible to all of the pet parents and pets that come to our store. We’re offering a ‘mom and pop’ store feel with expert knowledge”
