Abhishek Bhowmick, the proud owner of petsGOnuts, is an ardent animal lover, belonging to the city of Mumbai. Not only is he an Animal Welfare officer attached to the Bombay High Court, but he’s also been the 2011 winner of the Godfrey Phillip Bravery Award.
The Idea, The Drive – The Beginning
Even though he could have easily gone for a retail pet store, Abhishek chose to go the e-commerce way, as he wanted to reach out a larger sect of our target audience across different geographical locations of India. petsGOnuts sells some of the finest accessories for dogs and cats. And these products are often restricted to people living in the metros. But since they are catering online today, they can reach out to people in remote places, like Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh as well. Moreover, we know that by 2020 almost 80% of retail stores are going to close down and only cater online. This was also an inclination for Abhishek to start an online pet store.
