  Dave's Soda & Pet City had its modest beginnings in the bay of an empty gas station.
  Dave Ratner  (shown on the left), Owner and CIO  (Chief Instigating Officer), recalls, "I started
  the soda company, Dave’s Soda City, in 1975.  About three years later, I was in a supermarket,
  and noticed that they had more 
pet food than soda.  I thought, Hey, What a great idea for a store." 

  Today, Dave's Soda and Pet City has grown into a mini chain of 7 superstores with
  more than
150 employees! Dave's has become synonymous with pet supplies and
  awesome, doggone great customer service! So much so that Dave's won the

  2016 Reader Raves, 2015 Gazette Reader's Choice Award and
2015 Advocate Best of the Valley award! Dave was also elected to the board of directors of the National Retail Federation for a three year term. Our employees are
Pet- Friendly,  knowledgeable, experienced and can help you  find exactly what you need.
In further recognition of Dave’s importance to the retail industry, In 2012
Dave was inducted into the
Massachusetts Retail Association's Hall of Fame.

Dave's Other Companies


Daves Pet Food

  Dave’s Pet Food is our house brand of premium pet foods. Known for its quality-price equation as all Dave’s products have one distinct advantage over other super     premium holistic brands – price. Why? Dave’s has eliminated the middle man and excessive marketing costs that inflate pricing, so he is able to deliver you a top quality holistic product at a drastically reduced price. Dave states that “In 35 years selling premium pet foods, I have seen a gazillion brands come and go. I am often mystified at the prices of some of these products. As my business and our volume grew, I was able to go directly to the manufacturers and have them make formulas equal to the very top holistic brands and cut out the middle man. It is a huge savings I have been passing along to my customers for years. I have some pretty sophisticated customers not to mention some pretty finicky ones! They know good food and they appreciate good value.”
