eTailPet Brings E-Commerce Solutions to Canadian Retailers
eTailPet and Pan Pacific Pet, a pet distributor with warehouses in British Columbia and Alberta, Canada, have formed a partnership to help bring e-commerce solutions to independent Canadian pet retailers.
“We are excited to work together with Pan Pacific Pet in Canada,” said Berenice Giannini, founder of eTailPet in Santa Monica, Calif. “We have been empowering independent pet retailers in the U.S., and we are happy to bring those same resources to Canada. We want to build the pet industry worldwide, and e-commerce is the perfect way to level the playing field for independent pet retailers that have owned shops for generations.”
eTailPet’s e-commerce platform allows independent pet retailers to “quickly and easily” set up an online store and offer their customers a vast number of products with a few clicks of a button, according to officials.
“For over ten years, I’ve been searching for a solution that would enable pet retailers in Canada to quickly and easily go online with a platform that is user friendly and tailored to their needs. eTailPet is that solution,” said Phil Klaassen, CEO of Pan Pacific Pet. “Bere and her team have developed and implemented this over the past two years and now, in the past month, it has been updated to allow Canadian pet specialty retailers full access to its invaluable solution.”
This will prove to be a game changer for independent pet retailers in Canada that are struggling to compete with the big-box stores and large online competition, officials said. An online presence gives independent retailers options for their customers to connect with them in a variety of ways and conveniently get the products they need for their four-legged family members, officials added.
