If you live in a similar climate, then you might consider on-line shopping during this heat wave – especially for bulkier items like dog food, cat food, cat litter, etc.
We buy loads of pet food and cat litter and it can be a drain during the summer months so I decided to give on-line shopping a try. I gave chewy.com a try.
Who? chewy.com is a one of the fastest growing online pet retailers. The company based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
What? The company has more than 200 brands of pet food, pet meds, treats, training aids, cat litter, and more to choose from. What’s more, they get it to your doorstep within a few days.
How? chewy.com has warehouses located throughout the country – so the products are delivered quickly and efficiently.
As a raging animal advocate, I love that chewy.com offers a major charitable program, supporting some of the nation’s best pet organizations. In fact, their stated goal is to create the largest shelter and rescue network designed to support non-profit organizations that help animals in need.
Right on, Mr. Chewy. You can run in our pack anytime.
The logo gives you an idea of the tone of the business. chewy.com seems to be a happy, upbeat operation. My experience was a breeze; the website is well-organized and easy to navigate. I purchased a combination of cat and dog items and the box arrived within two days. The products were fresh (distant expiration dates) and in perfect condition.
I didn’t have a need to test this but there’s a toll-free number for calls and online chat available if you run into any snags. Furthermore, if you’re dissatisfied for any reason, chewy.com offers a 100% unconditional satisfaction guarantee for up to one year after the purchase date.
Chewy.com prices were comparable to local prices but I was happy to learn that they offer free shipping for orders totaling $49 or more. And if you spend less, there’s a $4.95 flat rate shipping charge. Pet food is heavy so shipping charges can be cost prohibitive with some online retailers. I figure that if the prices are within a dollar, there’s no shipping charge and I’m saving time, sweat, effort, and gas money then it’s a win.
