The inaugural NYC Re-Tails & Sales Expo recently brought Northeast pet retailers together with national pet manufacturers, who only make their products in the USA, for a day of networking, introduction to new items and special sales. The “Made in America” themed event was the idea of Dana Humphrey, owner and founder of Whitegate PR, and Nancy Hassel, founder and president of Long Island Pet Professionals, with Pet Age and Made in USA Certified as sponsors.
