Six Petco stores planned to open in Hawaii

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A national discount pet store will soon boost Hawaii's job market by expanding in the islands. Six more stores are planned in the next few years on Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Big Island.

Petco opened its first Hawaii store in Kona two years ago, then added two Oahu locations last year.

The company plans to hire at least 100 new employees, ranging from dog groomers to cashiers.
