Amazon, one of the largest internet retailers has recently announced their new site, wag.com. The site is catering to pet owners and claims that “over 10,000 products for Dogs, Cats, Birds, Fish, Reptiles and Small Animals” will be available at launch. This is a significant investment on the part of Amazon, since the failing of Pets.com this is the first major internet retailer to get invested in the pet industry. The perks from Wag sound familiar:
1) Free 1-2 day shipping both ways
2) 365-day return policy.
For now, they stay freshwater only with products like Seachem, biOrb, and Tetra. We don’t foresee this having impact to our reef industry, Wag might intend to target reef keeping products after they have initially launched. It will take time before their merchandising and product managers discover just how this reef building industry works. The calm before the storm.
Update: As alert reader Lou Schiavo brought out, they do have Hydor Slim Skimmers online.
