I'm glad you got a good deal! I don't shop much at Petco anymore though because Pet Supplies Plus has the Wellness canned food at .20/can cheaper than at Petco in my area.
i go when I have coupons. I was also very low on wet food and opened my last can this morning. I also wanted to start ordering online, but I'm not going to drop $30+ on cases of food until I know for sure he'll eat it.
I was talking to the lady at the local pet store, and suggested she put together a "sampler." I don't know if manufacturer's have rules for bundling their products or whatever, but it would be so convenient to go to the store and for $10 or $20 depending on how many cans, I can get a sampler of high-end, grain free, foods. Then different versions can be put together for allergy-type issues or fish-free. Or even a build-your-own!
Anyway, i bought about 10 cans so she gave me one free and said if I found something I liked, she could look into ordering whole cases of it or larger cans they might not normally carry. From her perspective, she said that she's happy to pass some of the savings on if she can count on a regular customer. so if a case costs X amount wholesale and she sells it for X+5, she'd sell it to me for X+2 assuming that I'd be likely to recommend her shop and pick up little extras like toys and treats when I'm in.
I'm so happy to have found found a shop that has reasonable prices to begin with and is willing to provide great customer service. They product line seemed very dog oriented, but she seemed genuinely interested in my cat and gave me her cell phone number in case of any issues or if I wanted to place a bulk order.
She was so perfect, she made me want to work there!
