Customer Comments

I would just like to thank you for having J & E Gifts there for the Bird Expo , I would like to thank everyone there because you are all like family to me I love seeing everyone's smiling faces everyone I asked for help was more than willing, in today's world that is very hard to find. I talked with so many molted and everyone of them says to work for this place is like a great big family that you never want to leave. May I say that is just amazing, may I also say the vendors this year as always was so helpful and the knowledge was unbelievable so many was willing to go step by step on how there product was created or how there products have been tested and proven effective in society today. I would also like to say thank you to all of the vendors that helped with meals by sponsoring. Thank you to all of our guest speakers who took the time to come and share with us again this year, your knowledge will help us as retailers understand more options for our own business. I look forward to see what is new and exciting next year and see all of my Goldcrest family again.
Once again Mel and entire staff thank you all for making this happen and possible every year.
Thank you

Wild Bird Expo was wonderful (as always)! Especially liked the Birdtoberfest; complete with beertender wearing lederhosen! Everyone was helpful even getting everyone to and from with umbrellas (during all the rain)! :)

Thank you so much for a wonderful trade show. Every person I dealt with from my driver, Shawn, to the warehouse and office personnel were always friendly, helpful and professional. I will certainly be back.

Thank you again for inviting us to the Wild Bird Expo 2013 and we look forward to attending again this year. We were very impressed with not only the organization and kindness throughout the show, but also the quality of buyers walking through the Expo. I truly feel you set a wonderful example for the wholesale markets and more of them should take notes from your Expo.

Dear Mel,

I wanted to first thank you for including us at your Wild Bird Expo 2013. Over the years, we have been vendors in many shows, but honestly, we have never been treated so wonderfully as we were by you and your staff. Everyone from Brenda and your office staff, to your warehouse crew were just great. Thanks also for all the great food, snacks and beverages. We really do appreciate all of your generosity! The relaxed atmosphere was nice for vendors and the customers to have a chance to take time and visit without feeling hurried and overwhelmed by the size of the show. This show gave us the opportunity to meet many new customers and prospective customers that we have never seen before.

Thanks again Mel! We hope to come again next year!

Mel, Bev, Grant, Becky and staff,

Thank you once again for a most fun and productive time at the Expo!

It's invaluable to see, touch, and play with products. We love the garage sale and non-stocked vendors and seeing stocked items we haven't seen before. And it was just great seeing everyone. Every single person was so very helpful and went above and beyond to be nice and answer our questions and help us with whatever we needed- I wish I could remember everyone's names- Sandy, Vivian, Cody, Cindy, Erin, Dawn, Brenda, Chrystal, Judy, Terence. And the gentleman who pulled my weekly order was so very nice, as well.

There was another young gentleman in the warehouse that helped us find a few different things on the shelves- Bradenton or something like that was his last name, but I can't remember his first name! He was over the top helpful and professional and I wanted to make sure to mention him. I hope you know who I'm talking about. I know he mentioned he had a young child and that his girlfriend loved horses. He helped us find Cobane, Evergreen and Pine Bush products and he had a turquoise necklace on.

I also truly enjoyed getting to visit with Sandy, Vivian, Cody and Chrystal. They were so busy, but always took the time to help us and chat!

Judging from the laughter and continual smiles from everyone, you know they enjoy what they do and truly appreciate customers.

The food was super, as always. We especially loved Porky's BBQ! Wow! And the pancake guy was hilarious. There is nothing like laughter to help you wake up in the morning.

A huge thank you to Gold Crest and all the vendors who sponsored food and hotels. It's those things that made us able to return for the 5th year in a row!

You all makes us feel like million dollar customers, even though we're not, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate that. And through that, maybe one day we WILL be million dollar customers!!! :)

WOW! What an incredible show. Mary Ellen - Drs. Foster & Smith


Thank you for the update and the show. Great to meet and speak with strangers that share a common bond. This was my third year visiting and every visit is very worthwhile. So far for the year our bird store sales are up 18% over our record sales last year. Me thinks (knows) the show has helped the double digit growth. My Best to all involved. Josh Williams - Old Bobs
