As the number of households with reptiles, amphibians and exotic animal pets increases, your inventory should too. Live food customers are some of the most frequent shoppers in the pet market – with an average return within 7-10 days. It’s no secret that increased traffic increases sales – Often time reptile lovers also have other pets at home - giving your store added traffic and sales in other categories. Carrying live food is one great way to help customers nurture their pets, and it’s an easy way to ensure they keep returning again and again.
At Timberline, we partner with you help educate your staff and customers about live food and reptile care. We can help you build a strategic merchandising approach to keep live food fresh and bring repeat traffic to your store.
If reptiles and amphibians could order their meals from a menu, they'd choose live food every time! But by encouraging your customers to choose live food, you’re doing more than giving their pets what they crave. You’re also giving reptiles the wholesome nutrition that completes their diet – just like it would in the wild.
Our live pet foods are naturally healthy, raised in state-of-the-art facilities and subjected to vigorous research and quality testing. Crickets are a great staple food, but our wide assortment of worms and flies give pet the diverse diet that it wants and needs. From bulk crickets and worms, to cupped worms and pre-packaged crickets – we offer a wide range of products and package sizes that can fulfill your store's needs.
