Interesting move.... I know a lot of people here (including me) buy via Chewy.

Here's a very interesting article from Forbes about Chewy's founder.... check it out. January 2017 article.

Fascinating (from a business perspective). I also hope that the quality and product selection doesn't change.

The Man Who Found Gold in Dog Food (Forbes)

Quote:
Chewy has already grabbed 43% of the online sales of pet food and litter in the U.S., just behind Amazon's 48%, according to market research firm 1010data. (Big-box retailers Petco and PetSmart are both in the single digits.) "We want to be the No. 1 pet retailer in the world," Cohen says. He has a long way to go. Chewy has yet to turn a profit, and the way it's spending money to acquire customers, it's not clear it ever will.
Quote:
Cohen, 31, is compulsive about executing, and about other things, too. "I have OCD," he says--though he's never been diagnosed--while digging into a lunch of steamed salmon and vegetables at Chewy HQ. His diet is primarily two meals: steamed vegetables with fish or chicken. He sleeps three hours a night, reading feedback on Chewy's Facebook page into the wee hours. Positive reviews, he says, "give me goose bumps."

Petsmart was pretty smart doing this. I do hope that they don't change the winning formula of Chewy. Many of us have gotten to depend on them

I can only add to the concerns already mentioned here. Chewy has been my go-to for years.

Free shipping on 30 lb bags of food is a real incentive to shop with Chewy and their return policy is exceptional.
