Established in 1989 as a division of BowTie, Inc., the leading publisher of pet-related periodicals for more than 50 years, Global Distribution Services is the leader in providing trusted in-store pet product distribution, merchandising and category management services.
We understand the right partner at the right time can mean everything. Partnering with Global Distribution Services means you capitalize on our pet industry expertise — our own publishing family and the solid relationships we have developed with other leading pet information providers, pet and farm & fleet retailers, the book trade, supermarket & specialty and product manufacturers.
Our mission is to enhance the in-store category development of our partnering customers and to help them reach their potential. In-store execution is as important for established products as it is for the launch of new product lines. As our partners' businesses evolve, Global Distribution Services changes to meet the needs of their operations.
We have increased the total magazine sales of our more than 3,800 partnering retailers by as much as 85%. We also have increased overall in-store sales by as much as 40% through cross merchandising.
Our demonstrated success in pet specialty chains is why established pet retailers, such as PETsMART, PETCO, Pet Supermarket, Petland, Pet Supplies Plus and Petcetera, rely on our customized programs that create results.
We have filled a critical necessity for innovative and successful pet product distribution and merchandising. We've got what it takes to help our partners lead in the pet market.
