Shop small, shop local. It’s the phrase you hear every Small Business Saturday on the weekend of Thanksgiving. Granted, this comes the day after Black Friday, when all of the big box stores have their huge sales. Why leave this awareness to just one day? The people at Acana asked the very same question and are petitioning to make October the official month of Neighborhood Pet Stores.
“ACANA Premium Pet Food cares about the health and wellbeing of everyone’s dogs and cats. But ACANA also cares about the people, families, and local pet store owners who nourish all our fur babies with our biologically appropriate food blends.
We are all living in today’s ‘new normal’ and want to do our part by supporting local, community oriented, small business by making the month of October officially “Neighborhood Pet Store Month”
Join us in our efforts to empower and put the spotlight on neighborhood pet stores, as they have always been there for us, and now it’s time that we’re there for them!”
Acana literally took their show on the road with the Acana Mobile Tour, stopping by neighborhood pet shops across the United States. Their tour visited four St. Louis area Treats Unleashed shops on Tuesday, October 13. We are also proud to have Acana dog & cat food as one of our featured Pet Foods of the Month!
As a neighborhood pet supply store, we are grateful and supportive of Acana’s endeavors. We too believe that neighborhood shops can offer the personal recommendations, knowledge and expert advise that big box stores simply cannot. It is the connections we make with our customers (and their humans) that makes shopping at Treats Unleashed different. We know you can go anywhere for your pet’s food, but we are glad you chose us. The wake of COVID has us all reeling, and we will continue to make improvements to our website and our in-store experience to better serve you. Thank you for shopping small with Treats Unleashed. We wouldn’t be here without our Frequent Barkers!
