Learn everything you need to know to become a Pet Smart vendor
Pet Smart is a mass retailer, a tremendous buying power. If you get your pet product in Pet Smart it is amazing for you and for your business. Everybody who has a pet product agrees with that and everybody wants to go after Pet Smart.
People always ask me “Karen, how do I get my product in Pet Smart? I have great pet product and I’d love to sell to them. Any suggestions, quick tips or strategies?”.
What you can sell to Pet Smart
The reason I mention that is because when you are dealing with a niche retailer that is very specific to one type of product and they’re mass, they usually mean that it is a tremendous competition and it also means that they might not move forward with you unless you have some totally new, interesting and innovative product or you can convince the buyer that your product is already selling or is going to be selling in mass. The key to becoming a Pet Smart vendor here is when they are dealing with a lot of niche stuff they’re either looking for completely new, interesting, innovative or you have already approved sales, or they believe that somehow you’re going to have tremendous sales once that product is in the store.
It’s a little tricky to become a Pet Smart vendor
That is tricky for those who are just getting started and don’t have a totally innovative product. It doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t sell to Pet Smart but it does mean that you need to consider that as an option. If I were you and I had a pet product and I would like to go after chain stores, I would definitely reach out to Pet Smart and do my best in presenting my product accordingly to them. If they reject me for some reason, I wouldn’t take it personally at all because all of my other competitors are reaching out to them. I would already know that it’s super competitive. If they say “No” to me – I understand and be okay with it, but at least I tried and that’s great.
Once you become a Pet Smart vendor other retailers will accept your products
The second thing you should do is you go after all of the other retailers that you’ve never considered going after and bring your product back to Pet Smart when you have some proven sales. Almost all major retailers have a pet section in their store, so why go after just the Pet Smart? Target has a pet section in their store, Walmart has a pet section in their store, Sears and all these retailers have pet products. Sell your product someplace else, build up your business and start growing that and then come back to the highly niche competitive retailers like Pet Smart.
