Retailer Highlight: Loyl's Natural Pet Grocery & Groomery

Nested in the heart of Houston, Texas, Loyl's Natural Pet Grocery & Groomery has been a cornerstone of the community for nearly eight years. Winners of PETS+ Magazine's 2023 America's Coolest, Loyl's is known for its commitment to quality, education, and personalized customer service. Loyl's has become more than just a pet store; it's a gathering place for pet lovers and their furry friends.

Loyl’s Natural Pet offers products and grooming for a healthy, natural lifestyle. From natural food and treats to entertaining toys and helpful supplies, Loyl’s makes it easy to be a great pet parent.

As Neighborhood Pet Store Day (NPSD) approaches, we spoke with the team behind Loyl's to understand the significance of supporting local independent pet businesses, how they celebrated the inaugural event, and how they plan to celebrate this coming September.


What value do you believe indie pet stores offer to the pets and people of their communities?

Indie pet stores, like ours, foster a strong sense of community by developing personal relationships with our clients, understanding their needs and preferences. We're deeply invested in pet health and education, offering guidance on nutrition and care. Through events like NPSD and engaging promotions, we create meaningful connections, while also linking clients to trusted local pet professionals. Our store serves as a welcoming space for pets to explore, further enriching their lives and those of their owners.

Why is it important to celebrate and support independent pet retailers with an event like Neighborhood Pet Store Day?

NPSD shines a spotlight on indie pet retailers, emphasizing the unique value and choices we offer beyond mass-market options. We prioritize high-quality, natural products and possess the expertise to guide pet parents through the maze of available information, helping them make the best decisions for their pets' well-being.

How did you celebrate last year’s event? What did you offer shoppers?

Last year's NPSD was marked with exclusive promotions on top brands, loyalty rewards for our VIPs, and a community fundraiser. We added a special touch with custom-decorated cookies for both pets and people, featuring the NPSD logo. It was a celebration of our community's spirit and our shared love for pets.

What was the most memorable part of last year's event?

The overwhelming support from our community and the joy shared over our specially designed treats were unforgettable. It highlighted the strong bond between our store, our clients, and their pets.

How do you plan to celebrate Neighborhood Pet Store Day this year?

We're excited to host another event this year, with details to be determined as we move closer to the date. Our goal is to make it even more engaging and memorable for our community.


Show Your Support for Independent Pet Stores!

As Neighborhood Pet Store Day approaches on September 28, 2024, it's crucial to remember the vital role that independent pet stores like Loyl's play in our communities. These establishments not only provide high-quality products and education for pet owners but also foster a sense of unity and support among pet lovers.

Celebrate the dedication and passion of local indie pet retailers by supporting them on this special day. Let's come together to make this year's event a resounding success for local businesses and our cherished pet companions.
