To better handle growth that has resulted in a doubling of warehouse space in the past year, RetailPets.com has promoted Gina Mirolli to fill the new position of general manager.

RetailPets, a pet supplies wholesaler to 1,000 small pet stores in the U.S. and abroad, is a unit of West Chester, PA-based DogToys.com Inc., which also sells direct to consumers through DogToys.com and CatToys.com. Sales are about $2 million a year, evenly split between the wholesale and retail operations, says company owner Jill Gizzio.

Gizzio, who has operated her e-commerce business since the fall of 1997, is preparing to launch a ShopByBreed merchandising system designed to help online and store shoppers find products suited to particular breeds. Gizzio is handing over the day-to-day operations of RetailPets.com to Mirolli, who has been with the company since 1999. Mirolli says she’ll continue to expand the range of products offered through RetailPets.com, which in recent years has grown from toys to include pet-related DVDs, beds and, for pet-owners, T-shirts.
