Leave it to Petco to expand agressively straight into a global recession. Sounds prudent to me...hehe. After all, you're dealing with a Leonard Green company here. This is a guy who stood by and watched while his investment in Rite Aid went right into the crapper. Now with a recession coming on and Rite Aid still unable to make money, shorts are moving right back in for the kill. Green is so "hands-off", he's practically a double amputee.
