We remember what it's like to be a small fish in the pet trade.
Having worked our way up from our humble beginnings of just one pet shop in Haywards Heath, we know how important it is to make sure small businesses can balance the books. We want to make sure that we support our local community and their growth which is why we pay all our small suppliers (turnover of less than £5 million) within 14 days of invoice to help them thrive. It’s the best of both worlds, we can stock the best products from our valued suppliers and our suppliers can stay afloat. It’s just one part of our Pets Corner Difference.
Some of our favourite

Since 1990, the team helped take Pets Corner’s signage to the next level of sustainability, transforming them into FSC certified, biodegradable pieces. This small business has helped us through the years to go through a complete rebrand and optimise our branding, so it's in keeping with the local setting.
Pete helped build out first website back in ‘92 and we’ve been working with him and his team ever since to help develop our online presence. Pete works with local young talent to nurture their IT skills to provide us with top level e-commerce.
Tom and Emma have been refining our look since they were just 15, back when Tom worked as a store assistant in our first store. After attaining a degree, Tom returned to us and conceptualised Pets Corners brand and drove it towards the image we have achieved today. We don’t think we’ve ever looked so good, thanks to junction’s branding strategy and creative direction.
We’ve supported Peter’s businesses for over a decade, from small beginnings founding a boutique Brighton web agency, through to his data science company in London which has more than 20 clients, and helps retailers in the UK and Europe become AI enabled so they can compete on a level playing field with the likes of Amazon.
