Pros

Cons

-The register system is really outdated and freezes all the time or the scanners don't work.
-Petco doesn't match online prices like Petsmart does.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Updating the computers would make it a lot easier and faster to serve the customers. Also if the employees got a discount on the website that would be great!
