July 6, 2017

America’s Pet Businesses Honored for Their Cool Factor

Ten independent pet businesses have been chosen “America’s Coolest” by Pets+, “The Magazine for the America’s Pet Pros,” in its inaugural contest.

The America’s Coolest Stores Contest highlights the best examples of independent pet businesses throughout the United States. They are judged by a panel of retail experts on the basis of business practices, history, online presence, traditional advertising, interior decor and curb appeal. This inaugural contest in the magazine’s first year of publication saw entries from all across America. 

“We feel privileged to bring our readers the best of the best in our industry,” said Ralf Kircher, Pets+ editor-in- chief. “Winning stores often have amazing product lineups and are impressive to look at. But a store wouldn’t really fit our ‘cool’ criteria if it weren’t for such aspects as innovative marketing, creative retail environment and a unique work culture.”

Without further ado, here is a list of winning stores:

Jungle Bob’s Reptile World, Selden, NY

The Animal Connection, Charlottesville, VA

The Hungry Puppy, Farmingdale, NJ

Bubbly Paws, St. Louis Park, MN

Camp Canine NY, New York, NY

Maxwell and Molly’s Closet, Newton, NJ

Odyssey Pets, Dallas TX

Shop Dog Boutique, Sioux Falls, SD

The Feed Bag Pet Supply, Mequon, WI
