PostSubject: A new sales frontier for Safari   A new sales frontier for Safari EmptySat Jan 21, 2023 7:53 am

I was at my local chain pet store, Petco, selecting a new wet pet and as I got to the checkstands I noticed this and nearly screamed in excitement. I have been concerned for Safari as a brand as they have (at least been more vocal about) been struggling. Not only is this a really creative new sales floor for the brand, they actually have a great selection and I wish I had the budget to get several of the bigger models before they get scuffed by shoppers but alas...

It appeared to be garnering a lot of attention and I hope that this new outlet may help boost the brand again. I for one will have a hard time resisting the WW moose and grizzly and some of the dinos...

Wow Shocked I hope Safari Ltd is indeed recovering and I would love to watch that kind of things here. Unfortunately, since Covid most of these displays disappeared.

Oh wow that is so exciting! I occasionally pick up Safari from Michael’s but their selection is always limited and it seems like they never restock. I have a Petco near me, I’d love to see if they now have Safari too!

That they have the 2022 anacaonda means they probably get figures in rather quickly, which means you won't have to wait long for new releases or buy them online!

In my case, a fish. One of my bettas died this week and I was checking their stock to see if there was any I would like to bring home. I found a handsome new boy that I will share here soon. :)

As I said, I just hope that this may be a sign of recovery for the brand. They had several 2022 models (not all) and an excellent selection from their fantasy, wildlife, farmlife, sealife, and specialty series like WW and IC. When I was there a lady was considering buying the new IC collared lizard or bearded dragon for her son. She decided that she needed to wait but from my thinking this will bring up all sorts of new shopping opportunities for consumers as well as sales opportunities for the brand. After all, given their line of models they are uniquely poised to do well in a pet store market (having life sized plastic versions of popular pets). I hope its a successful new strategy for them!

That's a good selection of models. Here larger gardening stores sometimes sell animal models, usually Schleich.

What a wonderful discovery!!As Roger said they sometimes sell models in garden centres in the Uk and many have pet departments attached to them.

Oh boy, a reason to go to Petco- I was thinking of checking out their dog toy selection for the new little love arriving Wednesday. I think this is a wonderful collaboration! A small pet shop I helped open many years ago carried pet oriented gift/collectible items like Sandicast, and they sold pretty well. Hope this works out as well for both companies!

Paige, I have been seriously thinking of checking out Safari's flagship store. It's about a hundred or so miles from me, so a good way to blow a day. If I do, I'll let you know in case you want anything- like a new salmon shark.

That is so kind of you Kelly, thank you for the offer. I would love to go there someday, I imagine it would be a pretty neat experience to go in person. If you do, please take some photos to share here! I have always wanted to go to toy fairs and brand flagship stores...

I think its totally worth the trip to Safari's flagship store! I visited it after going to the Jacksonville Zoo and they had pretty much every Safari figure from their line there. I took a photo out front with Bernie and got a Bernie plush along with some other figures cheers

Stopped by my local Petco, and no figures. Sad Maybe your store/area is a trial run? Oh well, did get a few more puppy things. That girl will have enough to share with all 11 of her littermates!

I'm sorry to hear that Kelly, I hope your store gets them eventually. I am so excited about puppy! What an exciting time for your family.
