Supporting the Survival of bricks and mortar stores

ALF are committed to supporting bricks and mortar stores and would prefer it if every person buying our products bought them in a physical retail shop as this supports the Aquatic and Pet industry by ensuring we have stores open and selling livestock.

In this day and age, however, we realise that shops just cannot stock everything and most of the time goods are wanted quite quickly which lends itself to internet purchasing.

From our point of view sometimes the internet companies selling Aquatic and Pet products do not give the correct information and do not have the depth of knowledge that the shops have.

Amazon and Ebay are prime examples of bedroom sellers selling complex products for which they have no knowledge and as a result pets often suffer.

The cost for each store starting and maintaining their own e-commerce website is often prohibitive, and so we have developed a solution.

We have designed an online site for our key brands. Orders placed can be click and collected into one of the listed stores, or we will offer home delivery on most items.

ALF will then give the profit for the sale to whichever store was selected for click and collect or the closest store if home delivery was selected.

Why are we doing this?  It’s simple really – we want the Aquatics industry to thrive and the only way to achieve this is to work with bricks and mortar stores in any way we can.
