PetFlow.com, an online petfood retailer, set a record in July by shipping more than US$2.5 million in petfood and pet supplies, and the company projects it will generate more than US$30 million in sales by the end of the year.
The online petfood retailer has seen much growth since its founding a little more than two years ago, now stocking more than 100 premium petfood brands, as well as a variety of other petfood brands and pet supplies.
“Since our inception a little more than two years ago, PetFlow.com has experienced extremely aggressive growth, but the statistic we’re most proud of is the very high return rate of our pet-owning customers,” said Alex Zhardanovsky, co-founder of PetFlow.com. “The company’s growth demonstrates that our customers see their pet as a true family member and they profoundly prefer PetFlow.com’s subscription approach to purchasing pet food and supplies when compared to the traditional, big box retailer approach to shopping.”
