In the face of increased competition from the likes of Amazon and Wal-Mart the company continues to grow faster than the pet products and services segment of retail.

SSS was 7% last quarter, and I expect similar numbers this quarter. Margins continue to improve as the company focuses on high-end premium products for pet owners. The company has a competitive advantage in its pet services segment over non-specialty stores like Wal-Mart and Costco, and especially online retailers like Amazon.
