My Pet Food Network
starts in Halifax on February 1. Founded by two St. Mary’s students, Richard Skelhorn
and Lu Lin
, it’s a pet food retailer that delivers in and around the HRM. They’ve started a website (mypetfoodnetwork.ca) where you can register now and browse products, and from the beginning of February order high quality pet food and products for delivery at no charge.
Besides free shipping and an online system they’re also offering a unique points system: “ With every purchase made on the online system, customers get 5 percent of the entire purchase back to them to spend on future purchases,” explains Skelhorn. “Additionally, for every friend you invite [to register], 2.5 percent of their entire purchases also get added directly to you for future purchases, and there is no limit to the number of friends you can have on our site. This means, technically, you could not even spend a dime, but reward yourself with free pet food every month for telling your friends.”
The online service is an outgrowth of their retail store, located at 731 Old Sackville Road.
