I am a little hesitant to post this and am only sharing this with the hopes that it might help someone: We were in Tractor Supply tonight, and I got to talking with the store manager about their chicks and rabbits. It is unbelievable that TSC took delivery of 30 rabbits on Thursday, and they've sold 25 already, as of closing time on Friday night. Another supplier brought in 10 mature rabbits late today, and only 6 remain. This store is accepting another 40 rabbits tomorrow. This is not counting the first batch of rabbits that came in late last week. I think one of the employees said that the first order was 15 rabbits, which sold out within the first day. The manager told me that baby chicks were on a corporate program, but that he makes his own deals with local rabbit breeders. At this store, the rabbits come from a breeder in a town about 20 miles away. If you have weaned rabbits available, and are scratching your head about how to market them, I'd be talking to your local TSC store manager. As a side note or two: It seems like the rabbits that sell at our TSC are mixed breed. My point is that you probably don't have to have high end show rabbits to be a rabbit vendor for TSC. It seems like TSC has more demand for rabbits than they have available. Just guessing here, but I think they could sell an additional 100 rabbits if they just had them. The first batch came on Monday, but they were sold out for three straight days. We were in on Tuesday, and I bet that 15 people walked in asking about rabbits in just one hour. As well, supply tends to run out early in the season, yet people keep streaming into the store asking about them for weeks on end. The manager said "I called her three days ago, and she still hasn't called me back." (This is where your fast, responsive customer service can out-shine the competition.) With all that said, if you have extra rabbits for sale, it might be worth your while to stop in and start building a relationship with the store manager. Even if you can't be the primary vendor for your store, it might behoove you to stop in every few days to see if you can fill a order while they are waiting for the primary vendor to fill their order. Don't be afraid to call some of the other TSC's in your area and build relationships with those managers too. I can think of 7 TSC's within a 45 minute drive of us. If you don't have a local TSC, what about setting up with the other feed stores in your area, with the pitch that you'll help them sell more feed, hay, cubes, hutches, cages, etc, if they will let you set up outside their store every Saturday to sell rabbits. In closing...I am not a rabbit person. Maybe I'm way off base with this idea. Nonetheless, it is just an idea. No bashing on me for offering a suggestion, please. There has been many times that I've had product, and had no idea where or how to sell it, and then along comes someone with a great marketing idea for me. Again, I'm offering it as a suggestion with the hopes that it helps someone. As I've learned in years of being a salesman, it never hurts to ask "Who is supplying your __________, and what would it take to be a new vendor for you? You know, I could help improve your store's profits...."
