Internet Retailer ranked Fins, Furs, and Feathers 35th in the specialty category of its list of top 500 Internet retailers around the country. The pet accessories retailer made the list for the second-straight year because of its sales, growth and excellent shopping experience.
Fins, Furs, and Feathers, Inc. is the parent company of PetStore.com and MarineDepot.com. Both companies deliver customer support to customers looking for more information about pet products and aquarium supplies. While PetStore.com is geared towards the average pet owner, MarineDepot.com mainly appeals to devoted aquarium hobbyists.
“It is a great honor to be included in a list of such prestige and in such good company,” said Mike Giove, chief operating officer. “Over the past year, our business has grown, and I think our rising position in the Top 500 guide demonstrates that.”
Internet Retailer's definitive ranking and analysis of America's 500 largest e-retailers is based on annual 2009 Internet sales, researched by Internet Retailer and confirmed by retailers. This report includes company financial, operational and performance data, as well as vendors in key categories.
“The Top 500 listings are based on online sales in the prior year, in this case 2009. We use a variety of sources to identify companies for inclusion,” said Kurt Peters, editor-in-chief of Internet Retailer. “What sets these companies apart from other companies selling on the Web is their size—they are good at knowing how to attract, engage and retain customers, and they use that knowledge to create and grow a business.”
This is the second continuous year that the online retailer has made the list. Moving ten places forward from 2009, the seller of fish supplies and dog pet supplies plans to continue the trend going forward.
“We’ve always strived to gear our business towards what customers want,” said Giove. “While it is great to be recognized for our efforts, our main concern is that our customers are more than satisfied.”
