Stella & Chewy’s is proud to support neighborhood pet stores. We believe that shopping local and supporting small business is important and we’re highlighting one of our retailers below: Ren’s Pets
About Ren’s Pets
Ren’s Pets began as a small Canadian feed and supply store in 1975. With over 46 years in the business, they evolved into one of the best pet specialty stores in Canada. They expanded from their original Oakville location to include a 25,000-square-foot distribution center based in Guelph, and 32 stores across Canada with many more to come!
They have a saying at Ren’s: they are passionate about pets and the people they own. They believe that our furry companions deserve the best care and highest quality products. Their passion for pets and their well-being has led to adoption and pet license programs, as well as being a national sponsor for OVC Pet Trust, Canada’s first charitable fund benefiting the health of companion animals. They are an omnichannel retailer, providing excellent services online and in physical stores.
Ren’s Pets offers a large selection of high-quality dog and cat food, treats and toys, grooming supplies – everything pet parents need to help their pets have happy and healthy lives. They love helping pet parents and their pets find the products perfect for them.
They are partners with local groomers, humane societies, and other pet professionals. They are opening Paw Spa bath stations in some stores to help pet parents keep their pets clean in between grooming sessions. Their multi-level rewards program features great benefits for pet parents, such as a free birthday treat and points earned on every purchase, with the VIP level adding more exclusive benefits. Their Gift Registry helps pet parents celebrate the big milestones in their pet’s lives. Their Autoship service helps deliver pet’s essentials at the frequency pet parents choose to ensure they never run of food (or other products) again.
The Stella and Chewy’s Meal Mixers are a favorite of theirs (and their customers!) They’re a great way to add variety that’s all natural to your pet’s diet to make their meals more exciting. This can be an excellent option for pets that are picky eaters! They recommend the Chewy’s Chicken recipe as it has a 5-Paw rating on their website.
Why Shop Local
The store staff at Ren’s Pets really gets to know their customers! Their staff are very knowledgeable about the products available at Ren’s and can help pet parents find exactly what they’re looking for. This is part of the Ren’s Promise, their guarantee that they will help you find the right diet for your pet. They can also recommend toys, grooming supplies, and other products that will be perfect for your pet.
They are dedicated to their local communities. They often have fundraisers in their stores for local humane societies and other great causes. They partner with over 30 of the cities their stores are in for pet license programs as well. They recently launched their Gift Registry, that helps pet parents celebrate the milestones in their pet’s lives (such as birthdays or gotcha days), but also gives local humane societies, rescues, and other pet charities the opportunity to share their wishlists for much needed items with their supporters in a way that they can conveniently donate to directly from their website. Their stores host or participant in close to 300 events per quarter. Photos with Santa, Prancing with the Stars, and Wiggle Waggle Walk are just a few examples of the events Ren’s has been a part of.
