    Find us a new store and win £500*

    We are on the look-out for new store locations across the UK and we’d like your help. Read on to find out more about what we are looking for and how you could win £500* for helping us with our exciting expansion programme.

    We are the second biggest pet retail chain in the UK and celebrated the opening of our 100th store in 2015. We are keen to bring the Pets Corner Difference to new towns across the country so that pet owners and their animals can benefit from our exceptional expert advice and high quality products in a place that is convenient for them.

    We're seeking new stores

    We are actively seeking new stores in great locations that are close to supermarkets and retail parks or have prominent roadside positions. We would consider:

    • Units with a minimum of 2,500 square feet or a selection of high street positions with a minimum unit space of 1,200 square feet
    • Freehold or leasehold
    • Parking for a minimum of 4 cars
    • Preferably located in an area with a high percentage of Acorn Groups 1 and 2 or ABC1

    We consistently get fabulous feedback from our customers about the ease of access and great parking facilities we offer so this is a must for new locations. We also want to ensure that we remain true to our environmental policies so wherever possible we will seek buildings that will deliver our high expectations for being eco-friendly and have exceptional environmental ratings.

    Finally, our clean, well presented stores already stand out from our competitors however we would rather not be right next door to them so only sites that aren’t within close proximity will be considered.

    Find us a new store and win £500*

    Recommend an appropriate site for a new store that meets the above criteria and if your suggestion results in us sealing the deal we will give you £500.*

    If you know of somewhere that you think may work for us, please send details to our Property Director Simon Forrest simon@petscorner.co.uk or call 07968 803093.

    Existing stores – welcome to the Pets Corner Difference

    These are just a small selection of some of our successful stores. Each of them has their own unique story and background.

    • Dorking

      Dorking

      Our beautiful Dorking store was home to the former Victorian fire station and subsequently the town’s library. After the library closed it remained empty for some time before we breathed new life into the stunning structure. Located just off the high street in an ideal position for passing traffic and close to the charming town centre, it is one of our most successful stores.

    • shoreham

      Shoreham-by-Sea

      Our Shoreham-by-Sea store was previously home to a car repair and MOT workshop. After obtaining the site in 2012 we set to work painstakingly renovating the building, removing redundant oil and petrol tanks and clearing up some minor ground contamination. Located on a main road close to the town centre, we now share the building with a veterinary practice and have seen the store go from strength to strength.

    • West Hove

      West Hove

      When we discovered this store back in 2007 it was a typewriter showroom. Originally too small to be considered as a standalone store (which needs to be a minimum of 2,500 square feet) we spotted the potential to extend and applied to expand the front forwards into the large forecourt, to create a smart glass-fronted exterior. Located on the busy south coast road it’s an ideal location for lots of passing trade.

    • Sevenoaks

      Sevenoaks

      At only 1,200 square feet Sevenoaks may be smaller than most of our stores but it is perfectly formed. One of our limited number of high street units, it combines traditional shop frontage with a great location close to a range of other high calibre retailers. Sevenoaks is a fine example of premises where we are happy to explore opportunities even if they don’t quite fit in with our desired criteria.

    • Stratford-Upon-Avon

      Stratford-Upon-Avon

      Due to the existence of two large competitor pet retailers Stratford-upon-Avon proved to be a more difficult town in which to secure a suitable site. In 2012 we were fortunate enough to find a lease on a property just south of the town and next door to a high end supermarket – helping to establish ourselves in an out of town location. Stratford-upon-Avon is a model that we are particularly keen to repeat in other areas.
