Mega pets store, Pets at Home, is holding its third Innovation Day to review potential new products to stock on its shelves in 300 plus stores. For anyone with a product tailor made for pets, this is your purrfect opportunity to secure a national distribution deal! Pets at Home is the largest pet retailer in the UK and the innovation day at the company's Stoke Distribution Centre is open to anyone that has created a pet friendly product. The product needs to be at least at the design stage and if found suitable, it could be fast tracked onto the shelves of more than 300 Pets at Home stores across the country. Claire Gavin, head of innovation at Pets at Home, said: "We strive to understand and respond to customers' needs to provide the highest quality, most exciting products for pet lovers on the market. This is a fantastic opportunity for product developers to showcase their new creations to a panel of experts from the Pets at Home innovation team and we're looking forward to receiving their pitches." If you have a fully developed and prototyped product send a design pitch to firstname.lastname@example.org. Pets at Home will contact anyone that is successful with an allocated time slot for the pitching day. The deadline for responses is Friday 30 March. With thanks to Linda Dick of JamJacks Petcare for bringing this to our attention. Linda - we're rooting for you to apply!
