Almost 20 PamPurredPets stores closed

The Dorset-based business is satisified with its results.

In April 2016 Pet Family Ltd, the parent company which operates the Pets Corner retail chain, added 51 stores to its portfolio after acquiring competitor PamPurredPets for 6 mio GBP. At the time, the Dorset-based business operated a network of 50 stores.

It has now been revealed that the company has closed 20 "underperforming" PamPurredPets stores since its takeover. Nine underperforming sites were shut down in the six-month period between March and September 2016. A further nine stores, along with the central warehouse operation in Verwood, have since been shut down.

In the annual report at Companies House, Pet Family said it was satisfied with its results and that profitability in the company "remains healthy" despite the current economic climate and growing competition in the market.
