Kathy and Steve Newman started Puddle Pet Care as a home delivery
business of pet food supplies and sundries in their home town
of Selsey in West Sussex. Two years ago they decided to create
a website offering a greater range of goods to see if they could
reach a wider audience. They certainly have. People shop in the
website from all over the UK and some from abroad as far as the
United States & Australia. Kathy comments: "We are making
shopping for pets easier and accessible 24-hours a day. If you
want specialist items you will find them here. It saves you the
time of having to visit a pet supplies shop only to find the item
is not in stock. And Puddle Pet Care saves you money. We try to
keep our prices below the recommended price. We regularly price
check our items with other retailers to ensure we are offering
the best value to our customers."
Pet Care prides itself in the high level of customer service,
as the testimonials on the home page will confirm. Emails get
answered promptly, orders get fulfilled as quickly as possible
and customers receive email receipts confirming the order and
notifying of delivery. Kathy adds: "If a product is out of
stock we give our customers the chance to change or cancel their
order - or wait until the product is available. We don't keep
people hanging around wondering where their order is. Occasionally
people have a query about a product before they choose to buy
and so we make every effort to get back in touch straight away.
Someone is working on the site pretty much all the time."
