Pet Product News has awarded Greenwich, Conn.-based Pet Pantry Warehouse its Retailer of the Year for 2011. Pet Product News International, the pet industry’s leading trade magazine, will profile the top Retailer of the Year in its September issue.
Candidates for the award are selected from hundreds of applications received along with additional materials that include photos, videos, event materials to help the magazine staff make its decision. The Pet Pantry Warehouse is a family run pet retailer with three locations and has been in business for more than 60 years.
“This award means a lot to Pet Pantry; It confirms our belief that a pet store that offers the pricing and products of a large chain combined with a high level of consumer and pet-friendly service can succeed in this very competitive marketplace,” said Adam Jacobson Pet Pantry’s Executive Vice President. “All of our locations feel like a neighborhood store because we place a strong emphasis on a personalized customer experience.”
In addition to donating a percentage of sales to non-profits, at each location, in partnership with local rescue and adoption groups, the Pet Pantry Warehouse hosts adoption days that offer customers the opportunity to interact with both dogs and cats that are available for adoption.
