PRLog - Nov. 9, 2009 - PLANTATION, Fla. -- The pet supply business is an ever-expanding multi-billion dollar market. In fact, overall sales of non-food animal supplies now surpasses $5 Billion annually. This shows that people absolutely love their pets! Larger pet stores like Drs. Fosters Smith, PETCO ,and PetSmart own a majority of this market, and have reached into online selling as a way to boost revenues. Still, on November 1, 2009, a new online pet supply store, Pet Megamart, launched its e-commerce website to try and gain a piece of the pet profits. This new seller offers over 13,000 products for dogs, cats, aquariums, birds, and reptiles. In addition, most of their products are unique, hard-to-find items.

They carry all kinds including safety reflective collars for those walks at night. They also have a huge selection of cat toys, furniture and cat treats, and of course supply vitamins and supplements for all animals.
Pet Megamart also has a large selection of bird products including cage kits and perches, ladders, and other products like seeds and toys. With so many products, its definately worth a checkout. And with such a large inventory, they could make an immediate impact on the industry.
"Pet Megamart has a solid business plan for success and an expanding marketing
budget. By offering frequent sales, a huge selection of aquarium supplies, and the
convenience of secure online shopping. Pet Megamart hopes to establish a loyal
customer base and carve a niche out of the online pet supply market. For an
independent small business, only a fraction of sales of the overall pet supply market
will turn this online store into a success."
-says S. Arnold, President and Founder of Pet Megamart.
Even with the economy in a downturn, consumer spending was reported to be up nearly 3% in August 2009. Some forecasts are predicting lower Christmas sales in 2009. Still, as far as e-commerce is concerned, more and more shoppers are turning to ordering products online for the convenience of finding those items rarely available in stores, or the hassle of waiting in lines. Shopping online delivers the consumer multiple choices, and the freedom to quickly browse similar products from different stores using comparison sites like Nextag and Bizrate without filling up the gas tank or paying taxes. Its estimated that nearly one in three online purchases now occur on comparison shopping sites. Pet Megamart does plan to enter the comparison shopping arena, but their discount codes which are on their site can more than make up for any savings you might obtain from other vendors. In addition to select items on special, Pet Megamart is currently offering 10% off of its entire inventory for a fall sale and site launch.
