With the boom of online stores like Chewy.com, Petco has been struggling to attract younger customers. To change that, they wanted to create a millennial-first campaign that will help them stand out and become a go-to pet care brand.
Young working professionals often live in big cities and, therefore, tiny apartments. Their lifestyle and living situation can’t fit a full-size pet, even though they could really benefit from a companion.
A smaller exotic pet can provide the love and companionship of a more traditional one (a dog or a cat), while fitting in the apartments and lifestyles of young professionals. Petco has a variety of exotic pets, as well as anything a person might need to help them thrive. Friends That Fit campaign shows how Petco can bring life and joy of companionship even to the tiniest homes.
