WellPet Honors All Pet Supplies & Equine Center With Retail Excellence Award

Tewksbury, Massachusetts (October 16, 2009) - WellPet has a history of recognizing those independent pet specialty retailers that set new standards in customer care, innovative business practices and community outreach. At the H.H. Backer 43 rd Annual Pet Industry Christmas Trade Show & Educational Conference in Chicago, Illinois, WellPet presented an award for retail excellence during the company’s Annual Valued Partner Appreciation Reception: The 2009 Retailer of the Year Award was given to All Pet Supplies & Equine Center of Springfield, Missouri, and was accepted by Amanda Mark, Store Manager.

All Pet Supplies & Equine Center was chosen for this honor in recognition of their commitment to delivering the highest quality service and education about natural pet nutrition to their customers. They truly exemplify the spirit of the WellPet mission: to do whatever it takes to provide the healthiest natural product to the pets that depend on us.

Employees truly care about each customer and their pets. They offer a wide and broad selection of unique products, like Wellness ® Natural Food for Pets, and are always striving to provide customers with information, while demonstrating their passion for pets.

“Jan Guin of All Pet Supplies & Equine Center, and her staff, are a true partner with WellPet,” said Tim Callahan, WellPet’s CEO. “ Both of their store locations are leaders in educating and supporting the pets and their owners in their communities, and their employees are extremely knowledgeable about pet nutrition. Their work ethic and promise to deliver unmatched results reflect the values and standards of the WellPet brand family and we are pleased to recognize their achievements.”

WellPet hosts the Annual Valued Partner Appreciation Reception to recognize the exceptional contributions of its retail partners. This reception was held during the evening at H.H.
