Retail Tips & Merchandising Ideas for Senior Pets
When planning out your retail sections, don't forget that many of your customers have senior pets in their homes and are always looking for products geared towards their aging, but loved pets. Creating endcaps, displays and signs that target senior pets is always a great idea. Try out these suggestions below to help boost profits and help customers with aging pets.1. Create an End-Cap for Senior Pets and highlight mobility products, such as pet ramps, stairs, and harnesses that help older and arthritic pets get around and feel more comfortable in and outside their home.
2. Include a Medical & Health section for healthy treats and senior supplements that cater to the nutritional needs of older dogs and cats. Offer Therapy Wraps to soothe arthritic joints and sore muscles.
4. Recommend Raised Diners, which let dogs eat in a more natural, comfortable stance with less bending and stress on joints, while also promoting better digestion.
6. Consider devoting a small section of your store to Pet Memorial products. Displaying a tasteful selection of urns, memory chests, and monuments acknowledges and honors the love and loyalty pets bring to our lives.
