Smoke Cartel Expands E-commerce Store to Billion Dollar Pet Industry, Launches Headypet.com and Attends SuperZoo Pet Conference in Las Vegas
SAVANNAH, GA, June 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Smoke Cartel, Inc. (Ticker: SMKC
), a leading online retailer and wholesaler of glass water pipes and related accessories for the cannabis industry, today announced the launch of new website HeadyPet.com, expanding their e-commerce presence into the multi-billion dollar pet industry.
In November 2017, Smoke Cartel acquired Early Bird Distribution and all of its brands, including the pet accessory line, HeadyPet. Smoke Cartel has identified several overlapping markets including the pet industry that easily integrate into the already extensive online store. The American Pet Product Association estimates the pet industry will be worth $72.13 billion in 2018. HeadyPet now has its own dedicated e-commerce store platform, along with Smoke Cartel’s other top-selling brands. The HeadyPet.com store sells cannabis-themed dog leashes, collars, toys, and other pet accessories. These products are not smoking or cannabis accessories and are therefore not restricted by any advertising regulations for tobacco or cannabis.
“We’re excited to expand our e-commerce web presence as we continue to add and develop in-house brands like HeadyPet,” says Chairman and CEO Darby Cox. “Branding and a strong web presence are part of our overall strategy to capture market share in new and different markets outside of just the cannabis industry.”
To that end, Smoke Cartel will also be attending the SuperZoo conference in Las Vegas June 25-28. SuperZoo is the most well-attended pet industry trade show in North America and has more than double the seminars and events as similar shows. The event includes an expo floor, expert-led education, networking opportunities and other special events and will welcome more than 1,100 exhibitors and over 10,000 qualified buyers and decision-makers.
"HeadyPet's presence at SuperZoo will allow pet retailers and vendors to learn everything they need to know about this latest venture, from sizes to pattern choices to our best-selling products," continues Cox. "Our leashes and collars are already popular with our online customers, and we are thrilled to open our products to a wider audience."
