Brooklyn Bark Talks

Why pay $10.39 When You Can Get it for $6.27?

It's hardly a secret that the mark-up on pet treats, toys and accessories borders on the obscene.   Why else would PetSmart buy-out have fetched $8.7 billion (yes, with a B) less than a year ago?  Triple keystone, tripling the cost, is not uncommon.


But we New Yorkers believe in bargains.  Triple keystone is Beef_and_potato_jerkey_6.27.pngfar from being a bargain, especially when you can easily find tBeef_and_potato_jerkey_10.39.pnghe idential products for much less.  Take Zuke's Beef and Potato Jerky.  You can pay $10.39 at PetSmart or you can get the identical package for $6.27.


Filling pup's or kitty's stocking at wholesale prices makes a lot of sense.  This past summer one of the suppliers we use at Brooklyn Bark,, decided to offer retail quantities down to single items at a cost between wholesale and what pet stores present as "reduced" retail. 


The savings are significant.  DogSupplies carries treats, toys and accessories.


PetSmart sells a size large Kong (R) Wubba for $14.49.  The identical item is $9.98 at DogSupplies.

If you go generic, you save even more.  An antler for a medium dog to chew on is $22.99 from PetSmart, $6.30 from

No doubt you are getting this.  A Martingale for $8.99, a 6' leash for $3.79.  You need it, has it, but just not food.  And there is one more very pleasant suprise on this site:  The Bargain Bin.


Bargain Bin stock rotates, of course, but there is no item higher than $4.  Today that includes 8 oz packs of treats by Natural Balance ($3.29)  and squeaker balls by JW ($1.36) or a squeaky plush toy for $3.49.

Oh, since is based in North Carolina, they do not collect New York sales tax.  They offer free shipping on orders over $99, but if you use our code SHIP49 you get free shipping at $49.


What do they say in New New Orleans?  "Let the good times roll!"  Up here in New York we agree, but we like to do it at a bargain.
