The concept for the retail business was to provide hard-to-find pet products primarily for dog and cat owners. The family business specialized in the supply of products for sporting breeds, cat and dog show items and premium pet foods. George Sr. and Lucy grew their client base by providing their customers with practical pet care advice and a wide range of products. Over the years, the couple remained committed to providing pet owners the items they needed to care for their pets. To meet the needs of their expanding client base they added product lines to include fish, small animals and a large offering of other animal supplies. George Sr. had a well respected reputation locally as the “go to man” for pet products. During his 50 years in the animal supply business, his favorite aspect of the business was spending time talking with people about their pets and sharing his knowledge.
In 1975, the Leone Animal Supply headquarters was established in Murrysville, PA where it remains today along business route 22. During 1985, George Leone Jr. joined his parents in the family business and opened a North Hills location in Wexford, PA. Again in 1997 the retail business expanded by adding a location in McMurray, PA, which is successfully managed by Georgina Coleman, daughter of George Sr. and Lucy Leone.
Currently, George Leone Jr., company president along with his sister Georgina Coleman, lead merchandiser, and Lucy Leone, mother and company patriarch carry on the Leone Family tradition of providing high quality animal supply products and specialized pet foods.
There are three things the Leone’s hear from their customers and friends day in and day out:
- Your stores are so clean, neat, and well merchandised
- You have products that can’t be found everywhere
- You have the best employees
Meeting and maintaining a high level of product and customer satisfaction is the continued goal of Leone Animal Supply in the three Pittsburgh locations, Murrysville, Wexford and McMurray. Pet supply stores selling the finest in pet care products in an atmosphere that is clean and neat making the shopping experience pleasurable. In addition, we have employees willing to spend time with customers to help them with their pet care needs.
