Find Fido's Future Favorites at the Watson & Wallie's Booth
For Watson & Wallie's Natural Dog Treats Owner Carol Olech, who has been making treats for more than 25 years, bringing a full spectrum of products to the Downtown Farmers’ Market is an opportunity she says wouldn’t be possible if she lived anywhere else. Treats from Watson & Wallie's, like the sweet potato chews and cookies, have a shelf life of six to 12 months. For dogs with a special diet, Watson & Wallie's is a positive resource that customers rely on, whether that’s for healthy options for their pooch(es) or advice.
Watson & Wallie's at the Downtown Farmers’ Market
Since 2019, Watson & Wallie's has been through the pandemic, the Drive-Through Bite-Size Market and many new experiences that she has loved to be a part of. Her favorite part of being at The Market is the people and the dogs. There’s instant feedback, and vendors know if they’re doing something right or need to correct something. There’s also a camaraderie amongst vendors that’s nothing like anything else she’s experienced.
One customer had lost her dog recently and told Olech that she was going to an adoption event at the mall to see if she could adopt a dog. The next week, she was excited to visit the booth with her new dog, Bucky. These types of encounters are normal occurrences for Olech, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Anybody can sell a product, but at Watson & Wallie's there is an emphasis on creating an experience for shoppers. Many customers have said they love what the business does. Olech said to be good to your customers and you’ll be rewarded along the way.
