No Kill Animal Center Is Underway

Best Friends

A new “no-kill” center for pets is underway in Bentonville, and it hit a construction milestone this past weekend — the final steal beam was put on top of the building, completing its frame.

  • Like no other: It will be called Best Friends Pet Rescue Center, and it will be a space unlike any other. Animals will be up for adoption, pet services will be available for low income families, and other programs and educational resources will be provided for everyone.
  • Connected: The center will be located in Bentonville’s 8th St Gateway Park and is set to be complete in summer 2022. Best Friends is accepting general donations for sustaining no-kill communities as well as for the current project.

New Cross-Retail Analytics Program

NWA Daily

Bold Strategies (Bold), a Rogers based e-commerce marketing agency, has created a new “cross-retail analytic program” for online retailers, and might have just changed the game entirely. 

  • Management: With Bold’s launch of Focus 2.0, clients are now able to monitor and manage their media and brand performance on over 30 retail platforms all at once. This means the days are over where online retailers have to juggle and keep track of every place their product is online.
  • Simplify: Bold has a team that can do it all, their goal being to “demystify e-commerce for brands so that they can focus on their business.”
