The pig next door is an online web service which caters to people who love to shop online yet, for some reason are hesitant to surf the web for that hard to find item due to lack of time, or you just don’t care to waste too much of your time shopping for stuff you need.
You might be wondering why the strange or rather peculiar name we chose for our site? For starters, there isn’t any pig around here, we just thought it was a catchy phrase which would definitely leave a mark on someone who happens by the site. With interest piqued, we capture the attention of our target audience and after that, amaze them with our unique offers.
The pig next door started out when two friends decided to start a business right after graduation. Around the same time, one of the partners was going through a rough patch with her boyfriend of 5 years. Eventually, they break up, after which the girl focused all her attention to her new business with her friend/partner.
Every time the topic of discussion went back to her ex, the girl would often interject with, “you mean the pig next door?” This went on for at least four weeks, at which point the phrase became sort of a go-to expression every time they wish to express displeasure with anything. The girl eventually moved on, but the phrase got stuck. Both partners thought it was a catchy phrase and might work well as a business name.
They asked a few friends what they thought, and everyone agreed it was a great idea. So that’s how the company got its name. The rest of the story we’ll share with you on our blog, save for a later date so do check back from time to time.
