At the grand opening, the first fifty people in line got $10 gift cards (score!). This meant that we got $20 worth of free money because B and I were both in line. Along with scoring free money, everyone received a pound of bulk treats from the treat bar, a package of Wet Noses Organic Dog Treats, a can of Merrick Canned Food, and a fancy Unleashed shopping tote.
Athena wasn't left out of the freebie fun because she received a very nice sample of doggy yogurt in a bowl that she managed to scoot halfway across the store. She of course also received pets and treats from every employee and went around to every costumer offering a sit (or a down if the sit didn't work) for treats.

Once we spent our gift cards (and used a $5 off $25 coupon) we got all of this for only $20:
With our gift cards we decided to stock on up some dog food and Zukes Hip Action Chews for Athena.
Maybe it was just the excitement from all of the freebies, but while at Unleashed I really liked what I saw. Although the store carries pretty much the same products as a regular Petco, I did notice a few speciality items including some local products such as collars and leashes by Cycle Dog. I was also very intrigued by a product line that I had never seen before called I and love and you. The product line includes food, treats, chews, supplements, and grooming supplies all made in the USA.

Along with being a great store for shopping, Unleashed also offers do-it-yourself dog washing stations equipped with large tubs, dryers, and all of the supplies provided for only $10 per bath! That's a bargain if you ask me! At Unleashed you can also take training classes and host a pet party. So, if you're in the area (or maybe you are lucky enough to have an Unleashed near you) check out Unleashed by Petco at Powell Square on 39th and Powell in SE Portland.
