PetSmart, Inc. (NASDAQ: PETM) today announced an update to the Company’s Board
of Directors. The PetSmart Board of Directors has named Gregory P. Josefowicz
non-executive Chairman of the Board of Directors, effective following the 2013
Annual Stockholder Meeting. Mr. Josefowicz has served as a director since 2004
and as lead director since 2006. Bob Moran, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer, will not stand for election as a director at the Company’s 2013

are focused on enhancing shareholder value,” said Mr. Josefowicz. “On behalf
of the Board, we appreciate Bob’s service and contributions over the past 14
years. Both the Board and Bob agree that now is the right time for Bob to step
down from the Board and to move forward with the Company’s next phase of
growth and development.”

“David’s transition to the CEO role has been exceptionally smooth. As such, I
