Online pet-supply store Chewy Inc. is expected to announce its final stock price Thursday ahead of an initial public offering. PetSmart bought the startup in 2017.

Chewy has yet to turn a profit, but its sales have been growing at about a billion dollars a year, reflecting robust growth in the overall pet supplies industry. Analysts attribute that growth to a trend toward what they call “pet humanization.”

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
