Using a Directory to Source Wholesale Pet Supplies

Posted on May 6, 2020 at 1:56 pm

The pet industry is booming and new businesses are setting up in this sector all the time. More businesses means more suppliers needed – businesses such as retailers all need to be able to put products on their shelves, have enough variety for their customers and keep costs reasonable. Where possible, pet business owners tend to buy in wholesale pet supplies to keep their shelves stocked and make sure they can offer quality products, in high enough quantities, and at prices that they can afford.  

The main challenge that businesses face is finding reliable suppliers who can offer an ongoing supply service. Wholesalers can be a good answer to this problem, as they offer pet products in bulk so that retailers can buy them at discounted rates, in larger quantities. Often, there will be discounts for larger numbers bought, so if you need the volume and you need to ensure cost savings, buying wholesale can be an excellent solution. But where do you find these wholesalers, and how do you know they’ll be right for you as a specialist retailer? Using a pet business directory is a great step to take, where wholesalers will be listed out along with the types of products they supply and additional details such as where they’re based.

Wholesale pet supplies: finding the right wholesaler

When you find the right wholesaler, your life as a pet business owner becomes increasingly more simple. You will be able to establish a more reliable supply chain, and know that you’ll be able to get the pet products that you need, when you need them. Using a directory will be one of the best options for this, so you can see the different wholesalers listed out and select the ones that might be right for you. Once you’ve located the wholesaler in the directory, it’s time to make contact and have a chat to see if you might be able to work together. People in the pet industry who have similar interests and know the industry inside out will often be able to have very productive first conversations, and you’ll definitely get a feel for whether they might be the right supplier for you.

The advantages of using a specialist pet trade directory to find your next wholesale

These are some of the key reasons why you should consider using a pet trade directory to find pet supplies:

  • They care about their reputation. Wholesalers will have to have been checked before being entered into the directory and may even have paid for the listing, showing they care about their business.
  • A wide choice of suppliers. A directory will give you access to lots of contacts in the pet industry, all in one single place. It’s a very useful resource.
  • Better value for money. You’ll know that you’re making contact with people who understand your needs and will supply quality products. By buying in bulk from a pet trade wholesaler, you can also save a great deal of money in the long run.
