Bentley’s Pet Stuff, one of the fastest growing independent pet retailers in the U.S., announced it has been awarded a 2017 Breakout Retailer Award by Chain Store Age, the nation’s leading provider of retail news and analysis across all sectors of the industry. This award coincides with the grand opening celebrations of 31 Bentley’s Pet Stuff stores in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri, Colorado and Illinois happening February 24-26.

Honoring emerging retail and restaurant concepts, Chain Store Age‘s 2017 Breakout Retailer Award recognizes innovative companies that show strong potential for growth. Sponsored by Paint Folks and selected by the editorial board of Chain Store Age, this year’s winning lineup features five forward-thinking brands in five different industries.

“Bentley’s Pet Stuff is proud to be among this year’s Breakout Award Winners,” said Lisa Senafe, president of Bentley’s Pet Stuff. “We are humbled to be among this class of innovative retailers who are mission driven and want to change the world for the better.”

Other award recipients were Altar’d State (a women’s apparel retailer with a mission), MOD Pizza (fast-pizza innovators), Sugarfina (luxury sweets makers) and Warby Parker (online eyewear retailer).

“Retailers have to go the extra mile to succeed in today’s highly competitive and disrupted marketplace,” said Marianne Wilson, editor-in-chief of Chain Store Age. “In their own unique way, each of the five winning brands has done just that. Although these retailers are widely diverse, they are alike in their ability to engage and delight customers, online, in-store, or both. And they all have a very clear pathway for growth.”

Bentley’s Pet Stuff will be honored at Chain Store Age’s annual SPECS Conference. For additional information regarding the 2017 Breakout Retailer Awards, please visit here.
