NEENAH, Wisc. – Pet Supplies Plus has opened a location at 872 Fox Point Plaza in Neenah, offering local pet parents a hassle-free way to find better products for their pets, while saving them money and celebrating the fun of pet ownership. In addition, the store will offer amenities such as self-pet wash stations, knowledgeable pet care team members and carry-out service in which team members carry heavy items to neighbors’ cars.
During this time of social distancing, Pet Supplies Plus is offering neighbors online ordering to be picked up curbside with no contact. The online orders will be ready for pickup within two hours and abide by the recommendation of social distancing as an essential business.
The store will be owned by local franchisee Dave Heather. Heather brings to the position 30+ years in the automobile industry. Although retiring from his position in 2014, Heather found a love for business ownership, and an inspiration to go to the pet industry through his love of animals. This is Heather’s second location, with the first opened earlier this year in West Bend.
As a community partner, Heather will partner with local animal shelters, rescue organizations and non-profits to host year-round adoption events, fundraisers and pet food and product drives. He will also host fun, interactive events for pets designed to socially connect pet parents throughout the greater Neenah and Menasha communities.
To welcome the community, Heather will host a weekend long grand opening event. Beginning on Saturday, October 31 and continuing through Sunday, November 1, the new Pet Supplies Plus will offer special prize giveaways, unbeatable sale prices and more. The primary giveaways are as follows:
· Saturday and Sunday – Neighbors have a shot at winning a complimentary, one-year supply of dog or cat food.
· Saturday and Sunday – Pet Supplies Plus of Neenah will offer complimentary nail trims and dog washes for pets.
· Saturday – Mystery scratch cards, between the amounts of $5-$50, will be given to neighbors throughout the day.
· Sunday – The first 100 neighbors who enter the store will receive a coupon for a free, small bag of dog or cat food – valid on any brand within the store.
Pet Supplies Plus will offer Neenah and Menasha pet parents a wide selection of natural pet foods, goods and pet services at low prices and focus on a unique, rich in-store experience for “neighbors” (the term Pet Supplies Plus uses for customer). The store will also feature grooming areas, grooming services, community rooms, and veterinary service offerings provided by VIP Petcare Clinics.
Heather said pet parents are always welcome to shop with their dogs at the store, where knowledgeable team members are on-site to answer questions, offer tips or just get on their hands and knees to play with pets who enter the store.
“We love that you are in the store, we want to have fun with you – we don’t just want to sell you pet food,” said Heather. “Our Minus the Hassle tagline refers to making shopping for your pet an enjoyable, easy experience. For example, we don’t want you lugging your food out to your car – that’s our job. If you want to wash your dog, come on in. We’ll deal with the mess that’s tied to a bathing session.”
Neighbors have access to an experienced and knowledgeable team help them find everything they need. Each team member is extensively trained in the areas of natural and holistic foods and are able to answer a broad range of questions about dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and fish. Shoppers can also take advantage of the free Preferred Pet Club, which offers members regular coupons on products they purchase frequently and monthly specials, resulting in big savings.
The new store will create many new part-time and full-time jobs for the Neenah and Menasha communities. It will be open Monday – Saturday 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. To contact Pet Supplies Plus of Neenah, call 920-215-3587 or visit www.petsuppliesplus.com.
