The Big Bad Woof Seeking KIVA Loan For New Location

Mar 29, 2016 08:52PM
The Big Bad Woof is an important neighbor in their original location in Takoma, DC and is planning to move into a new retail space, just across the street. In this new building that will nearly double their size, they will build a loading dock and storage area that will provide a solid home base to grow the store-to-door delivery business and allow them to ship to other parts of the US. This new space will also help them to secure dedicated parking spaces for our customers.

With this support, they will also replace outdated computer equipment and replace their point-of- sale system with a more robust version that will allow better inventory tracking and enhanced ordering capabilities. This new system will provide customers with real time inventory levels and will put the store that provides holistic and premium raw diets for companion animals, in a position to compete with the big-box on-line retailers.
