LH MERCANTILE Funny name – Fun place to work!
Being a locally owned franchise of Pet Supplies Plus, we offer the best of both worlds. We have the structure and services of a large company with a fun, family culture of a small business.
Our Pack - collectively a group of hard-working pet lovers – acts out of compassion and passion, connecting people, pets and community. We’ve created a supportive, inclusive culture based on our Paw Print core values of being pet-centric, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and neighborly. Whether you’re seeking your first job or you’re a retail-pro looking for a career shift, you can find a home with us.
When you have a passion for the work you do, you are naturally ENGAGED, HAPPY, and EAGER TO LEARN. Passion shows desire or enthusiasm for something - and with us - it's pets!
“What started out as my first job, ended up becoming my growing career. I joined LH Mercantile way back in 2007 as a team member and worked my way up as a key manager, assistant; and today, I'm running my own store!” – Joey Keehn, Store Team Leader - Streamwood
“I've been a groomer for more than 20 years and was a Grooming Trainer for a major competitor. When I join LH Mercantile to build their grooming department back in 2014, it was a leap of faith. I didn't know what the future would hold, but I've had the opportunity to work with so many amazing groomers from different backgrounds. Today, we even have a grooming academy to train people to become groomers! We didn't just build a team, we've become a family.” – Liz Slottag, Director of Grooming Services - LH Mercantile
The Leader of Our Pack
"Being involved in our communities isn't a company policy, it's really a calling for most of us. We regularly host adoption events for local rescue groups and support them financially to help them continue their worthwhile efforts. We are active in numerous fundraisers and programs with local schools, chamber of commerces, and park districts. These opportunities not only help our local communities, but it helps us connect with our neighbors and their pets as well.” – George Lennon, Franchise Owner - LH Mercantile
If you’re looking to join a rapidly growing company in a thriving industry that cares for its team members just as much as the wellbeing our the animals they love, then you belong in our pack!
