Our story is a story of family. Pets Plus was founded in 1992 by Jim and Mary Joy when one of their beloved Labradors required a special diet and all efforts to get it locally failed. When the Joy eventually got the special diet they needed to be delivered to their home, they realized the importance of finding the best products from trusted sources. As a result of this, North Star Premium was born.
At North Star Premium, we are committed to you and your pet’s health as an extension of our commitment to you and your pet’s health. We love pets and are dedicated to providing them with the highest quality of care you can find.
Our story is a story of a family.
Pets Plus was founded in 1992 by Jim and Mary Joy when one of their beloved labradors required a special diet. Without a local solution and after much research, they found a special diet and had it delivered to their home.
After seeing the results from their endeavor, the Joys immediately saw results and know they could help other pet owners with solutions for their pets. The Joys decided to start a delivery only pet food company and Pets Plus was born. In 1998, after several years of delivering each bag door to door, Pets Plus opened their storefront in beautiful Bemidji, Minnesota, where it is today! Their first store was less then one thousand square feet, but the Joys knew customers would help other pet owners with issues. With excellent products, great customer service, delivering product knowledge, and honest, Pets Plus grew into what it is today.
In 2012, Mary and Christopher, son and second generation pet food retailer, found that the pet food industry was changing away from being pet focused and customer orientated. Speaking with some of the leading nutritionists, their love of pets, and experiences, North Winds Premium was formed in 2013 to the highest of standards to ensure that customers would be provided with the best pet food that is inspired by the abundance of beautiful nature around Minnesota.
