(PRESS RELEASE) LAS VEGAS – World-renowned celebrity hairdresser Mauro Spina introduces a travel-size collection of his ever-popular grooming products for pets on the go! With five different body washes, a leave-in conditioner and fur refresher, fur babies, or their pet parents can select just the right amenities to have on hand for any occasion. Shampoo choices include: tear-free; deep cleansing; anti-itch; hydrating; and the color-enhancing black & grey body wash. Each carefully researched formula leaves a pet’s coat supple, lustrous, wonderfully fragrant and beautifully soft.

When Mauro’s blue Doberman Tina started to experience skin problems, Mauro’s expertise over the last four decades in plant-based formulas inspired him to identify the world’s finest vegan ingredients, botanical extracts and essential oils, to create a line of truly exceptional pet care products.

Spina Organics is the first to blend Moringa oil, widely-known as a natural hair cleanser for people and one not found in other pet products, with other cleansing, restorative, fragrant botanicals to produce the best, all-natural products specifically tailored to pet’s differing PH balance. Therapeutic benefits of this special oil include antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial properties that leave a pet’s coat not only more beautiful but healthier, as well.

A “white label” opportunity for merchants looking to enhance their own identity is also on offer from the show’s vendor.

(PRESS RELEASE) WASHINGTON – Retailers are preparing for one of the busiest shopping weekends of the year with an estimated 165.3 million people likely to shop Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday, according to the annual survey released by the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights & Analytics.

“The tradition of Thanksgiving weekend holiday shopping has become a five-day event with consumers spending money in stores, supporting local small businesses, and online with their mobile devices and computers,” said NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay. “Even as people are starting to purchase gifts earlier in the season, consumers still enjoy finding good Thanksgiving deals and passing time shopping with family and friends over the long holiday weekend.”

Throughout the course of the holiday weekend, 39.6 million consumers are considering shopping on Thanksgiving Day, 114.6 million on Black Friday, 66.6 million on Small Business Saturday and 33.3 million on Sunday. The shopping weekend will wrap up on Cyber Monday, when 68.7 million are expected to take advantage of online bargains.

Shay said younger consumers are significantly more likely to shop over the Thanksgiving weekend. Among those ages 18-24, 88 percent say they are likely to shop and particularly enjoy the social aspect. Similarly, 84 percent of those ages 25-34 plan to shop. That compares with 69 percent of holiday shoppers overall.

Of those planning to shop, there is an almost even split of people who plan to start their shopping in-store (47 percent) compared with those who plan to start online (41 percent). Those under 25 are even more likely to say they expect to start shopping in-store (52 percent).

“We expect the biggest increase in potential shoppers for Thanksgiving Day this year,” Prosper Insights Executive Vice President of Strategy Phil Rist said. “We anticipate that people may head to stores if they are open or shop from their phones while watching football.”

The top reasons consumers are planning to shop include:

The deals are too good to pass up (65 percent)
Tradition (28 percent)
It’s when they like to start their holiday shopping (22 percent)
It’s something to do over the holiday (21 percent)
It’s a group activity with friends/family (17 percent)
For consumers who do not plan to shop, more than half (53 percent) say something could convince them. The top reasons given that would change their minds are a sale or discount on an item they want (26 percent), if a family member or friend invites them to shop (12 percent), if they could be sure the items they want are available (11 percent) or a free shipping offer (11 percent).

NRF’s annual forecast estimates that holiday retail sales in November and December will be up between 3.8 percent and 4.2 percent over 2018 for a total of between $727.9 billion and $730.7 billion.

The survey of 7,917 adult consumers’ Thanksgiving weekend plans was conducted Oct. 31 through Nov. 6 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 1.2 percentage points.

Happy Dog Barkery Expands Retail Space

The business was sorely lacking space in the existing location.

(PRESS RELEASE) Happy Dog Barkery recently expanded its retail brick-and-mortar location in downtown Downers Grove, IL. The business was sorely lacking space in the existing location, and when a neighboring store relocated, Happy Dog jumped at the opportunity to expand into their space by knocking down the adjoining wall.

Beth Staley, owner of Happy Dog Barkery states, “We’ve been talking to our landlord for a few years about needing more space. Just when we decided to move some of our operation off-site for efficiency’s sake, this opportunity presented itself. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect!”

At a time when many brick-and-mortar retail locations are suffering due to many factors, including increased online shopping, Happy Dog Barkery has enjoyed success over its 15 years. This is the company’s third expansion in the current building it has occupied for the entire life of the business, adding square footage at each expansion. Happy Dog attributes its success to its fresh offerings of dog treats, stews and birthday cakes, which is unique to the area, as well as the experience its canine and human customers get while in the store. Canine customers’ favorite treat is the house specialty: liver cake.

The new space will expand the retail floor by an additional 1,300 square feet, allowing the business to bring in a more diverse mix of specialty products for dogs, cats and humans. The new space also provides more storage area for backstock, a mixed-use room and office space.

Happy Dog Barkery is an independent, pet specialty retailer featuring its own in-house bakery for dogs (and cats, horses, pigs, etc.) Local entrepreneur Staley left her job in corporate America in 2004 with the goal of working with her own pets and owning her own business. She was motivated by her own dog’s allergies. A baker since childhood, her Labrador Retriever, Payton, was suffering from severe food allergies and there seemed to be no existing healthy treats on the market for Payton so Staley created recipes of her own that were safe for Payton to eat. That quickly led to the opening of Happy Dog Barkery in April 2004. Happy Dog Barkery is home to Kale Chips the Dog, an international weight-loss story of the beagle mix who lost half his weight.
