What the Pet Adoption Boom Means for Retailers

The adoption of dogs and cats during the pandemic “provides retailers and brands with the opportunity to identify and provide value for the ongoing needs of their customers—and their pets,” Quotient CEO Steven Boal says.

Retailers and consumers are paying more attention to nontoxic wellness.

The displays, newly launched at 200 Meijer stores in the Midwest, use "lift-and-learn" technology that mimics online "clicks" in-stores, drawing new shopper engagement and sales.

The retailer's expansion of its Pure Balance premium pet-food label focuses on veterinarian-formulated products targeting specific nutrition concerns.

Sales climb of high-end, economical and fringe pet products.

Consumers who are spending more time at home amid the pandemic are buying more treats and toys for their four-legged family members.

The Doggie Dessert cups, which debuted in two flavors, are rolling out in grocery stores.

Sales of treats—and those deemed "better for your pet"—increase, reflecting consumers’ desire to pamper their furry campions.

Need insurance for your pandemic pet? Sure, says Walmart.
