PPN Seeks 2019-2020 Retailer of the Year Award Submissions
It’s your time to shine! Pet Product News is calling on pet specialty retailers, groomers and service providers to apply for our annual Retailer of the Year Awards, which aim to showcase the best of the best in the industry.
In an increasingly competitive marketplace, independent pet retailers must find innovative ways to differentiate their brands. Pet Product News wants to honor businesses in the industry that have found ways to survive and thrive in their communities.
We’re looking to recognize outstanding pet stores—single stores, multiple stores, specialty stores, boutiques and pet service establishments—in numerous categories. What innovative business, sales or management techniques do you use to bolster business? What brings your customers coming back to your store on a regular basis? What about your store embodies the independent spirit? What have you done in the past year to more effectively compete in your market? Tell us how you promote pet welfare and well-being as well as the human-animal bond. We’d like to know about the services you offer, your community involvement, your consumer education efforts, your brilliant merchandising strategies and more. Share why your store(s) are special.
Supplemental material—photos, media mentions, community commendations and business awards. The deadline is May 20, 2019. Pet Product News will announce the winner at this year’s SuperZoo trade show in Las Vegas in August and will profile the Retailer of the Year, along with 11 category winners throughout the year, all of whom will join our Retailer Advisory Board.
