Increases Sales and Brand Loyalty with a Store that Smells Inviting and Clean!
Scenting for Pet Stores
Your guests and employees are going to smell your store—it’s unavoidable. If you’re not managing how it smells, something else is.
Common malodors that are solved by scenting pet stores include the following:
- Pet odor
- Merchandise odor
- Furniture and flooring odor
- Body odor
- Restroom odor
These types of malodors cannot be resolved with cleaning solutions alone without smelling like an institution, which is where Aroma Retail helps the Retail Industry.
Scenting for pet stores is done for many reasons:
- A scented pet store smells both clean and well-maintained, with healthy pets and a fresh inventory.
- Increased revenue from guests willing to shop more, impulse buy, and return more often, by creating a better first impression and a more engaging experience because your pet store smells clean and fresh.
- Increased productivity from employees because everyone has a better mood and is more comfortable in a great smelling store.
- Without scenting, your store design and décor are incomplete and just doesn’t feel right.
Facts to consider about the impact of scenting for pet stores:
- Décor is not the first thing your guests and employees notice when they walk through your door – it’s the smell.

- Our sense of smell is the first to develop of all our senses. Even before we are born, our sense of smell is fully developed and functioning. It is our most primitive of senses, which is why we have such a visceral reaction to the way pet stores smell.
