In the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area, many locally owned pet services companies have faithfully served the community for decades. However, in the last few years, it has become increasingly difficult for local groomers, pet suppliers, veterinarians, and more to keep up with huge multinational pet service chains like Petco. Even though locally owned pet services businesses often operate with much higher standards than large chains, consumers are swayed by cheap prices and huge advertising campaigns.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many local pet services companies struggled due to lockdown restrictions. However, during COVID, many households adopted a pet for the first time, and many people decided to reinvest their capital more locally to help rebuild shattered local economies. The combination of these two factors means that there is a unique opportunity in the “post-COVID marketplace” for local DMV pet services companies to reach out and connect with local customers on a large scale.
This is exactly where DMVNXS comes in. DMVNXS pairs with locally owned businesses to strengthen local economies through the DMVNXS online marketplace.

The Post-COVID Opportunity for Pet Services Businesses With DMVNXS
During the last few years, locally owned pet services companies have increasingly fallen by the wayside compared to larger nationally owned chains. Local businesses struggle to keep up with the advertising budgets and very low prices of companies like Petsmart and Petco.
The COVID-19 pandemic certainly didn’t help with this issue, as many pet services businesses found themselves unable to interact with customers and pets in the same way as before.
However, the post-COVID marketplace brings a unique opportunity for pet services business owners to reconnect with local customers on a more grand scale than ever before. First, during COVID, many households decided to adopt a pet to aid with the emotional struggles of lockdowns. Now that lockdowns are ended, these new pet owners want to take full advantage of pet services businesses in the DMV area. For instance, those who want to travel will now need pet sitting services.
In addition, many people who witnessed COVID wreak havoc on the local DMV economy vowed to spend their money more locally in the future. This means that more customers than ever before are eager to take advantage of local businesses.
The combination of these two factors means that pet services businesses are presented with an opportunity to reach out to more customers and become integral parts of the local community. DMVNXS helps local businesses accomplish this goal.
