A Little Bit About Us
National Petland is an independent, family owned and operated pet store located in the beautiful historic district of Southport NC for 23 years!
Originally established by Marlene Radford in 1964 with 6 locations in the Washington DC metropolitan area, Kathi brought National Petland to Southport in 1986. Currently the store is operated by second generation owners Kathi Radford Lauer and Beth Radford. Kathi and her husband Mark decided to move back to beautiful Southport because they missed her family and the pet store. Beth returned to help Mom enjoy retirement and to work the store with Kathi and Mark.
TThe commitment to building trust and confidence within the community by providing quality goods and services utilizing over 47 years of pet knowledge and experience has always been our primary mission.
