  2. Pets on Broadway This is Joe Morton, the GM from Pets on Broadway. I’d like to thank Tristan for being so great in his response to this whole situation. He has been extremely gracious and I really appreciate that he has given us the chance to make this right. As Tristan said above: we made a mistake. We try hard to avoid them, but they happen. Here are a couple of things we have learned and what we are going to do differently from now on: Saving a few dollars on equipment isn’t always a good investment. We found what we thought was a good source of inexpensive water jugs which we sold at near-cost to our customers. As we have just found out, this wasn’t the right move. From now on we will be getting our jugs from a different source. They cost a little more, but it will help us avoid anything like this happening again. Trust, but verify. The jugs were supposed to be food-safe. We took the company at its word. While it is necessary to have a certain level of trust for our suppliers, we will be diligent about verifying to the best of our ability the safety of our products. That may seem like a no-brainer, but most products would require lab tests to absolutely ensure safety. What we CAN do is smell-test and disinfect every container of ours we sent out of the store. Rob, the fish room manager, has visited Tristan’s house to check up on the tank. He predicts a full recovery. We’re giving Tristan all the RODI he needs to flush and refill his tank. We’re replacing everything he lost, and then some. We’ve committed to sticking with him until we get him back up and running, hopefully even better than before. I am amazed by the community at PNWMAS. Reading through this post I’m blown away by the responses of the members. I can think of very few groups who would rush to help a stranger. To hear Tristan talk about the outpouring of support really made me believe in the power of this site. If anyone has any questions about this incident or suggestions on how we can improve, please don’t hesitate to contact either Rob or me (Joe) directly. We would love to hear from you!
