Feeder Food

If there’s one truth in the pet trade, it’s this: all of those critters have to eat. Reptiles, particularly, have diverse tastes in food that can simultaneously give you a throbbing stress migraine while providing the single greatest source of incoming revenue for your store.

One Hot Reptile

Want a way to ensure more register rings? Think insurance, as in Geico. That company’s pitchman has entrenched geckos within pop culture. It’s your job to get patrons to enroll in a pet ownership policy that involves purchasing more gecko goods from your shop. Most experts will tell you that geckos are a great beginner […] Read More →

Staff Training Redux

There’s a fundamental truth in life that many have to come to accept over time: people can’t be everywhere, and they can’t do everything.
