eTailPet, the multi-channel, cloud-based point-of-sale (POS) software solution designed for independent pet retail businesses, is expanding its support of pet businesses in North America with the launch of its POS solution in Canada.
The California-based company notes that pet ownership in Canada has increased by 18 percent since 2019, according to a recent survey, with approximately 3 percent of Canadians who didn’t have a pet before the pandemic since adding one to their household. This increase in pet ownership contributed to an increase of 117 percent in overall consumer spend in the pets category during Covid, with the current Canadian pet market (including food, supplies and services) worth US $7 billion.
“The growing Canadian pet market has accelerated the demand for easy-to-use, omnichannel POS solutions among indie pet businesses who want to streamline operations, maximize profits and appeal to the current generation of pet owners,” says Bere Giannini, founder of eTailPet. “Our all-in-one platform helps independent pet businesses remain competitive against the big box companies. Its easy-to-use design and comprehensive functionality, including the most advanced POS inventory management system, the biggest online pet catalog database, and full Astro Loyalty integration was created specifically to address the needs of independent pet retailers.”
