What’s coming in 2019?

Hello All,

2018 was a great year.  We started our business in 2018 … and the feedback has been great.  Many community members are thrilled that we exist.  Being able to buy treats for your pup or live crickets for your lizard makes us a handy addition to the Morris community.  Here’s a look at some of our plans for 2019…

Price increases?

As many of you have probably heard imported products from many other countries, including China, will have higher tariffs in the new year.  This means that prices on products that are manufactured, or have parts that are manufactured over seas will see a price increase.  We are working hard to keep our prices low and competitive with other retailers.

What are we doing to keep costs low?

We are working with our dealers and manufacturers and asking what it takes to get a better rate. One solution is buying in much larger volume on some products.  With the size of our current store that isn’t always possible.

A bigger space?

Yes, it’s true we are expanding.  While we don’t have final plans we have shopped around for many option in the community to grow our business.  One of the major needs for more space comes from the need to carry cat and dog foods.  Our goal is to offer foods that you can’t get in town.  We have launched a survey that will help us decided what brands to carry.  You can take the survey – click here!

The Learning Lizard?

We are happy to announce that we are working on a new brand – The Learning Lizard. The Learning Lizard will offer science and educational toys and resources for children of all ages.  We started by offering insect kits in store and will soon be expanding when we open our larger store.  You can take a look at what we are working on at TheLearningLizard.com

Thank you all for your support over the past year!
