But Jim Myers, Petco's chief executive, says his company did not have a single negative quarter throughout the recession. Fewer people traded up to more expensive items during the downturn, but he said they didn't trade down, either, sticking with a "premium and higher-level range of food products."

"Our perspective is that, thankfully, we are in a pretty emotional category," Mr. Myers says.

"We're pleased to welcome these two proven leaders to the Petco team," said Petco CEO, Jim Myers.

An article that appeared in the July 14, 2003, edition of the business weekly Barron's stated: "PETCO'S chief financial officer, James Myers, adds that plans to convert up to fifty of its existing stores into a new format that will place live animals store center, which should further sales of companion pets, could help those stores see mid-single-digit sales increases, (increases some converted stores already have registered)."

This is a clear indication that PETCO is moving away from being just a pet-supply store to also being a pet store. Placing live animals "store center to further increase sales" is an aggressive strategy that will encourage impulse sales.
The article went on to state that Mr. Myers sees the biggest growth catalyst as the "increasing humanization of the way we view pets. It is unfortunate that Mr. Myers fails to recognize that treating intelligent and active animals as merchandise and shuffling them through a mass distribution system is anything but "humanizing."
