PIJAC Canada is an organization that offers resources, guidance, and best practice recommendations. We believe in empowering pet businesses by giving them the tools to succeed at what you do. First and foremost, this success means providing the highest level of care for pets in our communities through reputable products, services, and business practices. We focus on creating useful material and developing tools to help our members achieve this goal.
We are excited to announce a brand-new e-commerce tool to help PIJAC Canada members in the retail sector. With a difficult year of restricted shopping coming to a close, we have been working to ease member struggles by finding ways to help you stay competitive and navigate ongoing lockdown restrictions. We are happy to report our search has been a success.
In the new year, we will be launching a new partnership with eTailPet, an online platform for retail pet businesses to build their own online store in a quick and affordable way. There were a number of key areas we wanted to assist with, including:
- Helping stores diversify (brick and mortar + digital destinations),
- Maintaining a loyal customer base (pet parents want to shop local),
- Adding new customers,
- Introducing a way to ensure business continuity during lockdowns.
