Buying Pet Corner International LLC Business Oportunity.

If you invest your money into Pet Corner you'll lose it all. The Product doesn't sell. It's not priced right for one thing. You won't get any support your promise. I bought into this and I lost my entire investment. BEWARE OF THIS PRODUCT AND OPORTUNITY. I know of at least TEN people who lost everything. I have yet been able to find anyone who has been successful with this business. They will not give you the names and addresses of anyone who is successful in this business. I have had this product in at least 15 locations and maybe sold 10 bottles at the most. I also set up displays at dog shows and couldn't sell Pet Corner product at a discount. Once again I'm doing you a BIG Favor telling you this. You'll loose everything with this company.

Very Simple want to lose 16k or 39k ? Invest in Pet Corner International.

By the way they will be in Florida State Court May 9th for false advertsing and fraud.

I lost 16k with them. It is Just a boiler room operation.

PCI is a scam!

I wanted to start my own PCI product distributorship in Lake County, IL. Bob Lambert, PCI's distributorship sales rep told me in June, 2011 that Lake County did not fit their "recommended demographic profile", but if I purchased an approved territory I was free to pursue business development opportunities in Lake County on my own. After buying in I discovered that they had sold a distributorship in Lake County in March, 2011 which means I'm completely locked out. Mr. Lambert knew if I couldn't market in Lake County, it would be a deal breaker. So his solution to seal the deal was to lie! The territory (Kane County, IL) I did purchase came with the agreement that 16 retail accounts would be set up by one of their account specialists by mid-October. The account rep only set up 9 accounts, none of them in Kane County. Instead, he set up four in northwest Cook County and five in McHenry County. Not only are PCI's operations staff deceptive, but their account specialists are incompetent. Plus, we did try the hip and joint formula on our 7-year-old westie and it made her horribly sick. It took between 36 and 48 hours for her to get her appetite back and her behavior finally got back to normal. Why would I want to market a product that made our dog sick? Poor product and deceptive operations is a recipe for disaster. Don't make the same mistake I made!

This is true The company is a total Scam. Anyone wish to discuss this can reach me at Bergentreb@***.com

#428140

Watch out for these guys. Do not buy in.

They just want to sell inventory,

they have no long term goals. They have no network of dealerships. Ask them for 8 sucessful dealers with phone numbers to speak with.They will not give you that information. This company is very evasive just like the owner Bob lambert.

I have 16k worth of inventory that does not sell

Pet stores work on 50 to 60% margins. PCI offers 28%.

they tell you stores will take it on consignment, not true. Stay way from this company big time or lose your money.

Distributorship expansion

One of our distributors recently expanded and in so doing purchased another distributorship and is developing a much larger territory. Why would someone do this unless they were succeeding in their business. Perhaps they were just very, very lucky, or maybe crazy. The facts speak for themselves. The next step will be for a few people to insist on wanting to speak with this distributor, ostensibly to get a few good 'ideas'. In reality it will be all about negative stories for the distributor. What person would want to subject themselves to this kind of call, unless they really were crazy.

Ya, I guess that is why Ted alias Eddy Alias??? went to jail for miss use of a govt seal, lowered from fraud by his attorney.

Ted (Eddy) has previous convictions in other states so I guess that is why the alias. You trust your pet with a company who's owner is in jail for miss using The National Science foundation which they boasted about when you look into being a distributor.

The distributor that claims so much success we had as our Retail trainer. We caught him directly with us in so many lies you be the judge!!!!

Pet Corner International Deer field Florida.

Pet Corner International Deer field Florida.
Do not sign a check for this company unless they can give you 8 successful dealers with names telephone numbers and addresses. This is a company that is not transparent. I have 16,000 dollars in storage of inventory that does not sell. Retail pet stores are not interested in this product even on consignment because the margins are to low at 30% They work on 50 to 60 % margins except for pet food which is at 30%, but that is what brings consumers into the store. The product is priced to high at 19.95. Once more the company is just interest in selling initial inventory. They do not have any dealership interactivity. They do not have dealership forums on line or do they have meetings to discuss better ways to market the product which does not sell anyway. I have offered my inventory to other dealers fo 50% no one returned a call or email. The company itself is not interested in taking it back either. I asked why, they said it was used. Not one bottle was ever opened. You would think if they were doing so well they would jump on the offer. Ask them who is the owner is, ask them what there sales were for the last two years, When they tell you they have 60 distributors ask them for names and places you could contact them. They only give you the same two who have the same answers you want to hear. Both of them I offered my inventory for 50% less both of them never returned my call or email. Do not get involved with PET CORNER INTERNATIONAL.

Beware do not buy a dealership from Pet Corner International. Very Shady Sales People. I have 16k of inventory that does not sell. The product is priced to high. Pet Stores work on 50 to 60 % margins they are not interested in products that offer them 30 % even on consignment. Ask then to give you a list of 10 dealers to call before you give them a check they will tell you they are to busy to speak with anyone. The company is not transparent ask them where the dealers are located and the failure rate. They will never tell you.

Pet Corner International- Bad Company

I bought into this franchise in December of 2010. The company is based in Florida. Don't buy into this company and it is a complete scam. I am trying to find some of the distributors out there. The company will not give me any names of the people who bought into this company. Please contact me- I need to talk to you soon. It doesn't sell in the retail stores and now I am stuck with all this product in my garage. Who knows what is in this product. They won't even tell me where the manufacturer is.

Maybe a good idea to check out 'nationalreviewboard'. They have a couple of postings regarding Pet Corner distributorships.

#371167

Ok, how do we organize to keep Pet Corner from hurting others and to get refunded? It is a horrible feeling to be scamed.

If we can contact one another we can organize and maybe make a difference. I do not see how we can reach one another but I am new to this...If you wish to be contacted in order to proceed ley us know.

#369291

If you check out another site you will see comments from a very successful distributor.

He explains in some details why the Pet Corner business model, together with the restrictions of using the internet were the main reasons why he decided to become a PCI distributor.

#359082

purchaed a distributorship in Sept 2010. Product doesn't sell like they tell you.

I've yet to see one advertisement on TV. The 2 distributors they gave me to contact (Norfolk Va. and Seattle Wa) told me the products sell immediately off the shelf. Vets and store owners tell me the product price is too high at $19.99.

In one year 11 retail accounts I've sold less than 25 bottles. In this time frame not one representative from Pet Corner has called to ask how I was doing or if they can help. I'm faily well off so I can handle the loss. I understood the risk going in.

What I don't get is if we as distributors can't sell the product Pet Corner International will never survive. They should have a vested interest in making sure we succeed but that just doesn't seem to be the case.

I'm going to think about trying different approaches to sell the product. To those of you thinking about buying --BUYER BEWARE

#357257

can you email me i would like to talk seems all the info should have been provided before you got in i'm thinkin about and may be interested in purchasing your supply

#348479

I'm so glad I found this website. I was thinking becoming an distrubitor with Pet Corner International.

I spoke to a gentleman who explained how pure their products were, only plant based.

What made me a little worried is when I asked him who is the CEO?, he hesitated, and said some guy's name, come to find out, I did a litle research and found not metion of this person's name. It' kinda a let down, sounded like a good way to start a little business wihout a large investment.

Don't buy a distributorship from Pet Corner International

Update by user Nov 23, 2011

Pet Corner Internatioan LLC and the Author bigguy1049 have reached an agreement to resolve our issues to our mutual satisfaction. This is to resolve my original Review and also the comments made in numbers 4 and 6.

Update by user Nov 23, 2011

As the author of comment 4 and 6 I am now posting the following rebuttal. I have now reached and agreement that has resolved our issues to our mutual satisfaction.

Update by user Nov 15, 2011

As the author of the review below I am writing to let readers know that I have come to an agreement with Pet Corner to resolve the issues we have. I am satisfied with these results.

Original review posted by user Sep 16, 2011
I bought a distributorship from Pet Corner International in December 2010. The main selling point was that they told me that the National Science foundation Audited them. The rep that set up my first 6 accounts used that as the top sales point. The national science foundation has denied to me any relationship with Pet Corner International. I asked for my money back and that was denied. On top of that the product doesn't sell very much at all. Pet Corner hasn't helped me grow this business at all after telling me they would. At this time they don't contact me and have abandoned the relationship and I'm out about $18,000. Hope this helps somebody else from making the same mistake.

A PCI distributor just expanded and in so doing purchased another distributorship and

also a larger territory.

Why would someone do that if their business was not succeeding. Are they just very, very lucky or maybe crazy, or is it that they understand how to make their business work.

Let's understand the next move, a few people will want to contact him, ostensibly to get some 'ideas' from him, but it will be one negative story after the other, why would any

intelligent person want to subject themselves

to that kind of phone call. We rest our case.

#394072

Watch out for these guys. Try to get at least 10 dealers to talk to you before you sign a check They will give you some lame excuse that they are busy they dont have the time to talk.

Very Evasive company. Also ask them for the sales for the last four quarters that really makes thme nervous.

Don't let the owner Bob lambert sell you. He is real slick and not forth coming.

#392827

Bigguy1049 Can you tell us your resolution. If they resolved with you they should be resolving with everyone else who is in the same situation.

Hope you don't respond by saying you can't disclose or they won"t go through with the deal. This is a bad investment for most people. It's not the product.

It's the Company and it practices. If anyone goes forward you better be in a position to lose your investment.

#389352

Have you been mislead from PetCorner ?Email me at bergentreb@***.com I have been to. Lossed 16.000 dollars The two dealers in seatle and north fork virginia I offered my inventory to for 50% less never heard from them.

that is the only two dealers they will give you a number for after you by the inventory.Then when you ask them for more they will tell you they are to busy to speak with.

This company is very evasive and not forthcoming. Those two dealers I would bet are in on the scam.

#389348

Warning ! do not invest in Pet corner They are not transparent.

What they dont tell you is pet stores excluding pet food work on a 50 to 60% Pet corner products offer only 30% even on consignment store owners say it is not worth it. Forget about the big box stores they wont even talk to Petcorner. Petcorner told me they are not there because that did not want to wait for there money.

If you ask them for other distributers to talk to they give you the same two with the same succes story. I offered them my 16.000 dollars worth of inventory for 50% off never heard from them.

They do not have one distributer in the New York Tri State Area you could talk to.

I was the only one. Now I know why.Do not invest in this company.

#387881

nan or tm, I was looking at this as well. Did either of you pull the trigger or find out additional information and back away?

#373249

Important Notice: I have reached an agreement, the terms of which will resolve the issues I have with Pet Corner International. At this time I am satisfied with this settlement.

#372305

Perhaps you should check another site and a comment from M. Lucas who is a very successful distributor.

You will also note why specifically he chose to become a distributor. Before blaming the company, maybe it would be a good idea to look elsewhere for accountability.

#370693

I bought in before these postings! What can we do about this now? I FEEL SO *** AND RESPONSIBLE TO MY RETAILERS!javascript:ac_smilie(':cry')

#364490

Mike. Look for something else....YoU'll lose your money with PET CORNER.

I wish somebody would have warned me.
