What do pet stores buy?
Independent store owners are facing serious competition from superstores and internet sites. To stay afloat, smaller stores must move with the times and improve the products and supplies they stock.
Dog and cat ownership is on the decline, but the value of the industry is on the rise thanks to the high value pet owners place on their pets.
While fewer people own cats, more people are choosing unique animals that require less space, such as fish, smaller types of reptiles and other small animals. This has led to the creation of many new product lines, categories, and services.
In recent years, the industry has been transformed by holistic pet care. More and more premises are stocking organic dog food and treats, natural remedies, and vitamin supplements.
Pet accessories such animal-friendly leash or collar ranges take into account animal welfare.
Advances in technology are also changing the way retail outlets operate and how customers can access them. The need for these solutions is growing among store owners.
Companies selling products and services to this sector must provide solutions to help these stores meet changing consumer needs.
Luxury pet products, natural, organic pet food, and web services will appeal to pet stores hoping to attract customers away from the major chains.
