RHINELANDER - The questions started getting asked last fall. Drs. Foster and Smith had just announced it would sell its pet supply company to San Diego-based Petco.
Would people lose their jobs? Would Foster and Smith leave Rhinelander? Would the name change?
Three months after the sale became official, answers seem to be getting clearer. Foster and Smith will likely remain one of the largest employers in Oneida County. The jobs appear to be safe.
