Pet Product News International, a monthly trade news magazine, has announced their selection for Outstanding Pet Specialty Award as part of the publication’s Retailer of the Year award program.
Jungle Bob’s Reptile World, a full-service reptile pet store in Long Island serving Nassau, Suffolk, New York City and beyond, was named for the award. Pet Product News International announced the award in the September 2012 issue of the magazine. Jungle Bob’s will be profiled in their August, 2013 edition. The overall winner and the 11 special recognition winners will each be given a seat on the Pet Product News International Retail Advisory Board as part of the award program.
In addition to the store, Jungle Bob’s has an educational division to bring live animal programs into schools, libraries, camps, scouts and senior centers. They recently expanded with an “Outback” outdoor nature center featuring a carnivorous plant bog, two turtle ponds, waterfalls and a dry riverbed habitat.
Pet Product News marketplaces address those in the following sectors: aquatic, bird, boutique and gift, cat, dog, grooming and pet services, herp, indoor and outdoor home, natural, small mammal, and tack and farm.
The Retailer of the Year contest is sponsored this year by World Pet Association (WPA), the oldest pet industry trade association and organizer of the annual SuperZoo trade show, taking place today through September 13, 2012, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
SuperZoo attracts over 12,000 pet industry people every year and features over 850 exhibitors with the latest pet products and trends, educational sessions, international grooming contests, networking events, and live animal displays.
