Recently, many of us have shifted the way we’re doing our grocery shopping — not just for ourselves, but for our furry friends, too.
With limited hours at grocery stores, short supply, and inevitable lineups, the convenience (and safety) of ordering our groceries online has become more and more appealing.
It seems now that the only downside to grocery shopping from the comfort of our sofas is the delivery fees attached. However, Vancouver is lucky to have a pet food delivery store that delivers for free right to our doorstep.
Naturally Urban by Paw Street Market, a company based out of East Van (and Vancouver’s top-rated pet delivery service), offers free local pet food delivery to residents in Vancouver, the North Shore, and Burnaby.
And if you’re just outside of these areas, that’s ok. The company always tries its best to accommodate orders around nearby areas, too, and offers free shipping to Southern BC for orders over $100. Just drop them a line at [email protected].
On top of its delivery deal, the store offers a “lowest price guarantee” and even emails you shopping reminders when you’re close to running out of food.
The owner, Brian Feldbloom, says that the company is able to offer such a competitive deal on shipping because of the costs they avoid by being an online service.
“We offer the same price as your local pet store and we offer free delivery. The way we can do that is through the absence of storefront expenses. We just don’t have the same overhead — the lighting, fixtures, retail rent, and all these extra things that consumers end up covering.”
Whether you’re looking for supplies for your pooch or purring kitten, you’ll find a variety of dog and cat food (including dry, wet, and raw) as well as treats, kitty litter, and accessories, from reputable brands you’d find at your local pet store. Since 2014, the pet store has been delivering the most popular natural food brands. And recently, you might have seen it’s environmentally-friendly kitty Tesla driving around.
Naturally Urban by Paw Street Market gives back to the community, too. As well as paying all of its staff a living wage, it makes sure that 1% of its sales goes to a local charity of the customer’s choice. Some of these have included BC SPCA, Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA), A Loving Spoonful, Kids Up Front Foundation, and Backpack Buddies.
