Pet supplies store Petco is coming to the Metropolitan shopping complex in midtown Charlotte.

The retailer has signed a lease with PMG Retail to occupy a 14,000 square-foot space next to the BJ’s Discount Club at 999 Metropolitan Ave., PMG said Tuesday.

The store is expected to open sometime in 2016.

“It is a perfect location for them,” Roy Perez-Daple, a PMG retail leasing executive, said in a statement. “The Sugar Creek Greenway is an active dog walking venue and the site’s easy access to and from the vibrant downtown.”

Petco sells pet food, services, toys, furniture and apparel, as well as some small animals. The retailer operates six other stores in the Charlotte area, according to its website.
