Pets at Home debuts new pet care centre in Stockport

5 Apr 2019 01:36

Pets at Home has opened the doors of its new look store in Stockport. To celebrate, the store will host a Party Weekend which will welcome all customers and their pets to experience the new facilities. 

Pet lovers are in for a real treat with the exciting new store which will feature interactive zones for them and their pets and improved services thanks to a £1 million refurbishment. 

The Pet Village has been revamped with pets in mind to ensure there is plenty of room for them to play, hide, eat and sleep. The interactive design of this area also features tunnels that kids can crawl through, as well as screens full of educational information, a game for kids, fun selfie spot and a quiz to see which pet is right for you.

There’s always something fun and exciting happening in the dedicated events area. Customers can learn about the importance of dog grooming during a live demonstration, join like-minded owners at the monthly breed socials, or see how fast their dog is on the agility course.

Children can meet the small furries in educational, hands-on, My Pet Pals workshops or celebrate their dog’s special day with their very own birthday party! 

Pet owners can book in for a free pet food consultation, where a trained Nutrition Advisor can advise on the best food for their pet’s life stage, as well as offering a free weight check. Customers will also be treated to the new dog self-wash where they can wash and blow dry their dog without the hassle of cleaning up the bathroom mess at home. The Vets4Pets veterinary surgery and Groom Room have also had a makeover to ensure pets are cared for in a fresh environment. 

The store will also see the launch of its first cat adoption lounge and will work in partnership with the RSPCA to welcome those considering adopting a cat. This existing area allows potential owners to meet the cats who are cared for by RSPCA staff until they find a loving home. The RSPCA will be able to offer guidance and information and advise which cat is best for the new owner.

Store Manager, Julian Woods, said: “We are so excited to open the doors to our new look store and can’t wait to welcome our customers and their pets. The store offers absolutely everything a customer might need to keep their pets happy, healthy and safe. The fresh look gives us the chance to show our customers the passion we have for pets and dedication to delivering high quality pet care that we pride ourselves on.” 

The Pets at Home store in Stockport will be hosting a special Party Weekend on Saturday 6th April and Sunday 7th April. The weekend celebration will invite customers to enjoy the new immersive store experience and will offer free children’s face painting from 10am-4pm, free pup-cakes for dogs* and ‘My Pet Pals’ workshops at 11.30am and 3pm, giving children the opportunity to learn about pets and the responsibilities of owning them.
