Here is what Artisan Mid-Cap Fund has to say about Chewy, Inc. in its Q3 2021 investor letter:

"Chewy is the largest online pet retailer in the US. At ~15% penetration, we believe the pet supply market is in the early stages of shifting online. While the company continues to gain share, its rate of growth is slowing as it laps difficult 2020 comps (customers gravitated to offline channels amid the pandemic). We believe the stock’s valuation adequately captures the likely cash flow growth ahead, and we exited our small GardenSM position."
