I am a small business owner, along with my partner, in outback Western Australia struggling to keep my pet supplies business alive.
We offer our products at a reasonable price to pet owners in Onslow and while we do make a small profit, it is not enough to cover monthly expenses (Freight costs being the major financial burden). Because of these business costs, we can not pay ourselves a wage and therefore can not invest in this business full time.
My partner and I do not want to close our business down because we are passionate about providing our town and their pets with this much needed service. Unfortunately if we can not keep on top of highly priced expenses, we will have to close.
All funds raised will go towards the following:
1. Paying for delivery costs (so we can keep pricing reasonable for our customers)
2. Paying other fees like loans and rent for our storage unit.
3. Opening a pet supplies store in Onslow.
In return, I will complete certain challenges such as skydiving or bike riding long distances in extreme heat. (I'm not fit so it would be a great challenge!)
Please help my pet business survive and serve a small community of pets and their owners!
