Dog & Cat Food Retail
Retailers of dog and cat food may be large superstores selling not only wet and dry food but also accessories like leashes, clothing, and grooming products. They often feature sales of particular items on a weekly basis, from whole meals to vitamins to raw food. They may also have a booth where sales associates give out free samples of new foods, or organic and all natural dry and canned varieties.
One section may be devoted solely to treats, while another may have supplements and vitamins to keep pets healthy. Other aisles have necessary items like dishes and water bowls. Customers can purchase kitten and puppy food online, as there are many websites dedicated to selling pet supplies at a discount.
Some veterinarian offices sell retail dog and cat food in their office, especially the healthy kind that helps dogs and cats with their digestive systems. Vets can recommend the best diet foods for those who suffer from an allergy, or those who can only eat vegetarian, vegan, low fat, diet, or holistic foods. Customers can also head to department stores to buy dog and cat food, which may comprise meat, seafood, and other ingredients. The selection is usually smaller in this case, but when customers shop at a pet superstore, they will find more selection in terms of brands and prices.
Sales associates that work within dog and cat food retail shops should have a love for animals and have a working knowledge of the many kinds of canned and wet pet food available. Sales associates can direct customers to the products they need, like biscuits, treats, gourmet varieties, raw foods, and all natural healthy options. Quality can range from standard food that’s easy on the wallet to premium brands that cost more.
