SO YOU THINK you’re pretty cool. That is to say: You’re considering entering this year’s America’s Coolest Stores contest. That’s great news. The contest offers the pet industry’s preeminent opportunity to show off all the neat stuff you’ve done with your business. Winners are not only lauded as visionaries by their peers, but many also report benefits including a slimmer waistline, thicker and more luxurious hair, and increased vigor and stamina. We also send you a free set of knives.*

And here’s the really great news: This year, we’re going to make it easier than ever to get your contest entry ready. This very blog post, which you are reading right now, kicks off a series of “training posts” you can follow along with to get your entry in tip-top shape.

Here are some things we’ll be covering:

  • How to write a great description of your business
  • Submitting photos that make your business
  • Deciding what’s “cool” about your business
  • How not to lose all the information you’ve entered, so that you get frustrated and lose your temper and kick the wall and frighten your staff and have to re-enter everything.

We’ll also be here to answer questions and help solve problems as you prep your entry. Email questions to  coolstores@petsplusmag.com.

Two things to remember this week:

  • Enter at petsplusmag.com/acs
  • Enter by March 1, 2021, to have your entry reviewed for suggestions to make it even stronger by the March 15 final deadline

All right! This is very exciting.

Next up: Eligibility, logging in, and not doing everything at the last minute

*OK, no knives, and we can’t guarantee the slimmer waist, fuller head of hair or increased vigor. But our eight winners will be featured in the July-August issue of PETS+ for the entire pet care industry to see.
