The store is owned by Tom Bernau Capital Group and is operated by Iowa native Suzy Schweer who originally owned the local pet stores. Originally from the Waterloo, Cedar Falls area, Schweer opened her first Pet Supplies Plus in 2016 in her hometown. Since then, Schweer has grown her Pet Supplies Plus stores across the state of Iowa reaching from Des Moines to the newest location in Bettendorf.

As a community member, Schweer said she plans to team up with local animal shelters, rescue organizations, and non-profits to host year-round adoption events, fundraisers, and pet food and product drives.

“I am excited to bring a fantastic community-based pet store to Bettendorf,” said Schweer. “We absolutely love being a part of the Quad Cities community already with our store in Davenport, our ultimate goal is to have locations for all of our Iowa neighbors to have access to great pet care across the state.”
