We are considering expanding our Raleigh based pet food delivery service to the coast. Would you be interested in brands like Evo, Orijen, Dr. Harvey's, raw foods, etc if they were available in your area? We carry holistic brands, organic brands, all natural and raw..just to name a few... and deliver them to your home or office for free. Wilmington is a smaller area than RDU and we are trying to gauge interest so please respond with thoughts, opinions, suggestions, etc.

Thanks!

Tracie,

I have an idea. Why don't you call the buyers at the following health food stores. I know Tidal Creek has a pet section, and Lovey's Market may, as well. They are both in Wilmington.

Organic Foods | Natural Foods & Deli | Wilmington, NC (Tidal Creek Co-op)

Lovey's Natural Foods & Cafe - About Our Store

I really appreciate the information but we are a retailer that sells directly to pet owners. A grocery store would not be interested in that. Surely there are pet owners down there that want good food at a great price delivered to them for free?

Oh, ok, I see. Sorry, I misunderstood.

You still might try linking up with Tidal Creek and Lovey's. They would be good word of mouth, and the type of people who would be interested in purchasing organic food for their pets would be frequenting these places. I know Tidal Creek has a large bulletin board where you can post flyers, etc - not sure about Lovey's.

You might also try getting the word out through bulletin boards and talking with the staff at local veterinarian's offices and pet grooming places.

Just a few thoughts.... Seems to be the course I would take if in your shoes.

Best of luck!
