Why Pet Owners Shop At A Pet Store

All across the country millions of households are not only home to people, but to pets as well. These pets need to be fed, cleaned, and cared for. Pet care can not be completed without buying pet supplies and that is why many individuals choose to shop at a pet store.

A pet store is classified as a store that specifically sells pet products. There are a number of department stores or other retail stores that carry pet products; however, they are not classified as a pet store. These locations are known as only having a pet department. Depending on the type of retail store in question many retail stores with a pet department only carry the most needed items including pet food or bedding. While traditional retail stores with a pet department are a great way to get pet supplies when already shopping in the store, many pet owners find it more convenient to shop directly at a pet store.

There are a number of reasons why a pet owner would prefer to shop at a pet store and the most common reason is due to the selection of products
available. Most pet stores are a fairly decent size and they tend to carry everyday pet items and other special items. In addition to pet supplies, it is also likely that a pet store may be selling a selection of pets. It is not uncommon to find fish, cats, dogs, hamsters, and other small animals on display at a pet store.

While both traditional department stores and pet stores carry name brand
products a pet store is more likely to do so. It is not uncommon to find top of the line products at a pet store that may not be available in a traditional retail store. These items often cost more money; however, they are worth it to many pet owners. Department stores, especially those claiming to be discount stores, are less likely to carry products that are high priced even if they are worth the value. Most pet stores are more worried about the quality of product versus the price.

Another reason why pet owners enjoy shopping at a pet store is because of
the customer service at the store. Most pet stores require that their
employees become trained and educated in the pet department that they are
working in. This not only makes their employees more knowledgeable, but it also makes them able to provide better service to their customers. In many traditional department stores it is hard to find a store employee in the department area let alone one is who able to efficiently answer your pet question.

There are technically two types of pet stores. There are the traditional
storefront pet store locations and those that are located online. Shopping at each type of pet store has its own advantages and disadvantages. Many pet store shoppers would prefer to shop at online pet stores and others do not.

The preference is up the pet owner; however, there is no doubt that most still prefer to shop at a pet store over a traditional retail store.

Question by hittyp713: Pet store?
I’m looking to buy a Papillon dog and I was asking somebody about how to get it. He said he got his pug from a pet store in Tulsa. I have heard some bad things about pet stores (mills, no pedigrees, no pictures of the parents, etc.) but he said his came with AKC registered with a pedigree and pictures of the parents. So is it possible this pet store actually cares about the pets and not the money? I want to know your opinion on whether I should buy the Papillon from the pet store in Tulsa or from one of the two AKC breeders in Oklahoma, who are probably more expensive as well?

It’s worth it to spend a little extra money on the well-known sellers of certain breeds. I think Pet Store’s are a little sketchy.. The absolute best way to get a dog is to adopt, though. It’s actually very cheap and helps out animals shelters / the world! =)

Gould Partners Announces Recommendation to Buy Shares of Pazoo.

Pazoo is an exclusive provider of health and wellness products for humans and pets. They just recently went public over the counter and trade at a compelling $ 0.390 per share at the time of this writing – a 150%+ return to date. Fortunately, the firm looks nowhere close to hitting its peak, as evidenced by how liquidity has picked up over the last month. Yesterday, volume gained 40% as shares rose from greater awareness over the underlying fundamentals.

By offering the #1 social community for people and their pets, Pazoo has carved out a niche market that is gearing up for large returns in a country where 62% of households have pets. According to the CEO, “[Pazoo] ha[s] only scratched the surface”. What makes Pazoo attractive going forward is that it is a potential takeover target for other firms in areas of cross-over value.

Demand has been so high in the industry that major pharmaceutical giant Pfizer is preparing to do an IPO for its animal health business. The business will be called “Zoetis” based on the root “zo”, which denotes “animal”, found in words like “zoology” and “zoo”. This entity is intended to be a standalone unit by July 2013 and is expected to be valued somewhere between $ 15 billion and $ 18 billion. Since Pazoo has already built the foundation of a major social network in the industry, speculation of a buyout could send shares higher. Although Pfizer may never end up buying Pazoo, that is besides the point: the idea that Pazoo could be worth more to a suitor ought to be at least partially factored into the stock. When the market corrects for this, just some of the value potential will be unlocked.

But recent news announcements are also likely to provide solid returns in the days ahead. Pet Life, New England’s largest chain of pet stores, recently agreed to carry Pazoo’s PetMax product line. PetMax H20 Energizer is a major catalyst that will be introduced to this outlet. This product increases oxygen levels in the blood of animals – a practice that has a long history of successfully improving quality of life for children and adults. Direct Response Programs will help the company boost revenue as business flows from the brick-and-mortar store to the Internet and back.

The company also recently gained admission on the Berlin and Munich Stock exchanges. Why does this matter to new retail investors? Well, the company is having meetings in Germany for the week between October 22nd to October 26th. Management will be meeting with investment professionals in major financial centers – a process that will not only gain new leads and partners but also potentially some big-dollar investors.

From the stronger press coverage to the growing demand both from the takeover side and consumer side, Pazoo is well positioned to outperform broader indices. Not coincidentally, the company has reported “dramatic increases” in web traffic. Current daily traffic suggest a 1,000% gain in unique visitors in September over August. This growth has attracted new investors and is being complemented by 70,000 local TV spots in this month alone. Accordingly, Gould Partners strongly recommends buying shares to capitalize on this emerging growth story.
