A Bonding Experience
The LADS Pet Supplies open house event fostered valuable industry connections between retailers and their suppliers.
LADS Pet Supplies, a division of Animal Supply Company LLC, held its open house at Holiday Valley Resort in Ellicottville, N.Y. on August 28th and 29th. On the first day, retailers and manufacturer reps were encouraged to join activities including a golf tournament, horseback riding, skeet and clay shooting, paddle boarding and kayaking. A welcome reception was held at night for retailers and manufacturer representatives to mingle and discuss the latest industry news over dinner and drinks.
LADS Pet Supplies was acquired by Animal Supply Company in April and was consolidated with Animal Supply Syracuse in August. Over 335 people in attendance took advantage of the opportunity to connect with several brands new to the LADS warehouse and ask questions about the acquisition. Many manufacturer reps expressed their excitement about setting up new retail accounts. LADS closed the show with dinner and live music from The Boys of Summer, presented by Bayer. PB
