PetProducts.com, a global directory for pet products, stores and services that helps connect pet owners with top professionals within their own communities, announced on July 12 the official launch of their multi-platform service.
PetProducts.com connects online shoppers with local pet professionals and stores via an online directory. The site seeks to help brick and mortar pet stores transition into the digital age by turning the online experience into a tool that helps lead to an offline purchase.
“Behemoths like Amazon, eBay or Alibaba offer products but not the emotional and personal experience that pet owners get from their local store,” said Allen Simon, PetProducts.com founder and CEO. “In this industry, personal recommendations, instructions and support are critical to the care and maintenance of pets. PetProducts.com offers the solution by transforming an online experience to an offline purchase.”
According to PetProducts.com, the site has onboarded over 7,000 retail stores, 9,000 service locations, 300 brands and over 10,000 products worldwide in the span of a few months.
“PetProducts.com is really a site for consumers, but we are building some very exciting tools that allow manufacturers and stores greater visibility into the inner workings of the digital world,” Simon said. “We will continue to innovate and develop cutting edge features to enhance the experience for all users.”
