GS Pets Winter 2020
Winds of Change By Debbie Eisele

Editor's Letter

With every new year, there is always excitement about setting personal and business goals, picking new product and finding ways for your business to stand-out from the others. This issue highlights some great product picks for pet-loving humans and more. Product showcases begin on page 60 of the Winter issue, so flip the pages and gather some inspiration for your store.

Also in this issue, read all about The Nautical Dog, a brick-and-mortar retailer in Virginia that helps not only its customers, but also assists dogs and cats in need. Read all about the business and its efforts on page 66.

Susan Johnston Taylor shares some great insight on visual merchandising on page 70. See how Polkadog Bakery and Tails in the City surprise their customers every time with creative displays. Read more to see what tips you may incorporate into your store to capture shoppers’ attention.

Since this issue is my first as the managing editor, I thought I would introduce my furry friends who keep me company everyday while I work!

Lanie
Meet Lanie, a German short-haired pointer who is 11 years old.
JoJo
Meet JoJo, a 4 year-old mixed breed adopted from a local rescue organization.
