Current livestock list growing

Following on from our move to Hucclecote we are now growing our list of livestock in store and available to order. Every now and then I post the current list. I don’t do it too often as it changes almost daily but a quick post of what we currently have is often welcomed by our customers.

We do not have birds or fish at present. We can’t stock birds until we have finished painting because of the fumes and the area where the fish are going has only just been re-plastered ready for the tanks to go in. Obviously the tanks have to be matured before we can put fish in them.

Please note this list is only what we have in store and does not include the much larger range available to order.

So here is the current list as it stands today, it will be changing tomorrow.

Mammals

gerbil

Reptiles and Amphibians

Cave gecko

Spiders

tarantula

Other invertebrates

Temporary Suspension of Free Local Delivery Service

Unfortunately, due to ill health we are having to temporarily suspend our popular free local delivery service with immediate effect.

Whist carrying out remedial works to our old property, prior to leaving I developed a few symptoms in my legs that have progressively worsened over the last few months during the move. After being persuaded by the family to get it checked out I have been informed that I have some rather serious damage to my spine that is going to require surgery. So, for the time being I have been forbidden to lift or carry anything and will not be able to for a few months after the required surgery.

I appreciate that the service is relied on by many customers but the injury is such that it could suddenly become life changing. I hope everyone understands that I cannot take that chance and need to have the surgery ASAP to prevent that happening. In fact the doctor originally told me I had to go in that night when she saw the results of the scan, so it’s quite bad.

We do have one or two disabled customers that cannot make it into the shop and we have taken steps to ensure these few customers can still receive their deliveries but as this is in Billie’s little Ka we can only do this for a select few who really can’t get to us.

We have a few deliveries already booked for this week and these will still be done by Billie but that will be it for a few months at least.

Sorry for the inconvenience but we now have a large car park and are much more accessible for most customers to collect in store. I have also changed the website this morning from the free local delivery option to collect in store, so customers that like to place their orders on line still can.

New Gloucester Pet Shop Opens

I haven’t really posted much recently about our Gloucester pet shop. This has been due to the huge amount of work we have had to do involved with moving premises. I often get asked why we are moving and in fact still get asked why we moved from our original pet shop in Abbeymead. Well, it’s certainly not a decision we have ever taken lightly. The amount of work involved is tremendous and it is extremely expensive so we have only done it when forced to.

The original location for our Gloucester Pet Shop In Abbeymead was ideal for us and our customers. Right in the middle of a large housing development, withing walking distance of home, with a large free car park, close to other local amenities. The rent was way above market rate however and we were subletting from the people who were responsible for that. We have now had two subsequent properties, both of which are larger but are less rent and rates than Abbeymead. In the end we were forced to move from there, not through our own choice but because the lease expired and our landlord would not renew it as they wanted the premises for themselves.gloucester pet shop

The next location of our Gloucester pet shop was in Southgate Street. When we first moved our takings dipped significantly. This was not a surprise, it’s like starting a new business. Over the next six months we grew the business back to a level only just below that in Abbeymead. However we then had the rug pulled from under us by Gloucester City Council. At the behest of the Quays development they closed the nearest car park. I objected at the time but was told “we’ve carried out research and it shows that closing the car park will have a negligible effect on local businesses”. I don’t think anyone’s  definition of negligible would include wiping 50% off our takings, virtually overnight. You can’t believe how frustrating it was to hear “the parking’s rubbish round here”  every day! We had to move in order to survive. Unfortunately, as we were tied into the lease for three years we still had another 2 years to wait out with very little income. Our staff level went from a peak of 6 down to 2. On top of that the daily threat of violence toward staff from the idiots that frequent that area becomes a bit much, especially when your not getting paid to put up with it!

Anyway that is all behind us now and yesterday we opened a new Gloucester pet shop in Hucclecote. Well, we opened phase one. There is a lot of work to do on this property due to the condition it was left in by the previous tenant so we are having to do it in stages. Phase one is the left half of the shop and we have restocked with the wide range of quality food and accessories we are known for. Billie is currently working on phase two, which is our boarding and quarantine facility. Once that is completed in the next week we can move onto phase 3 which is where we will be stocking the animals and opening the shop out to fit in more floor space.

So come visit us in our new Gloucester pet shop at 2-3 Glenville Parade, Hucclecote, Gloucester GL3 3ES. The shop space is larger again and we have ample FREE parking. It’s perfectly located for Hucclecote (obviously), Abbeydale and Abbeymead, Brockworth, Matson etc. and is close to and easilly from accessible from, Churchdown, Longlevens, Tuffley, actually anywhere is Gloucester and Cheltenham.

Angell Pets Opening Soon In Hucclecote

After what seems like forever we have just received the keys to our new premises. Our new  Gloucerster pet shop will be in Hucclecote. Unfortunately there is a lot of work to do before we can open the doors to the public, especially since all our contractors are shutting down for Christmas. To speed things along we will undertake as much work as we can ourselves over the holiday period but it is still going to be several weeks before we are ready.

Transition arrangements and New Delivery Shedule

From around the 1st of October we will start moving our current stock into storage allowing us time and the space to get our current property up to the landlords standards. We are still going to continue our FREE local delivery service throughout this transition period but you won’t be able to come into the shop. Orders will need to be placed via the telephone (Our number is staying the same 01452 501882) or via our website www.angellpets.co.uk. Please bare in mind that some of our suppliers cannot deliver to our home address, as they use large lorries, therefore we are going to have to collect from the wholesaler ourselves. Although we will try our best, this may mean that orders cannot be delivered the same day so please try to place your order a couple of days ahead so you don’t get caught out, orders will need to be placed before 5pm for same day delivery (if the products are available and it fits the delivery schedule).

As of 01/11/17 we will be introducing a new delivery schedule (the £5 minimum order still applies). We have to be out of our current premises at the end of October and the current schedule will not work well with the new location in Hucclecote. However we will have a car park so orders can easily be collected in-store.

Change To Opening Hours

As of the 3rd of September 2017 we will be no longer opening on Sundays. This is not a decision we have taken lightly but my family have been telling me for years to take time off or at least close for a day a week. In September Albert is off to Uni. and he is the member of staff who works with me on weekends so this seems like an opportune time to make the change.

I have worked 7 days a week for the last, nearly 8 years; not having a holiday and only closing around Christmas time for a few days. The work load of the move and also delivering in the evenings is now taking its toll and I cannot keep going 7 days a week.

We recently chose to open late on Mondays at 1pm as this is the quietest time of the week for us. This is still the case. However Sundays are fairly quiet too so this seems like the best day to close as we don’t have to do any deliveries in the evening. While we are still in our current location by the quays the late opening Mondays will still be in place but this may change in the new shop.

The current shop has to be decorated before we leave. Although we have nearly finished down stairs there is still a huge amount to do upstairs. We are going to need more time to get this completed as really we need two members of staff downstairs at all times. Closing on a Sunday also means that we can come up and get on with the decorating and not have to worry about who is coming in the shop.

I hope everyone understands the need for this change and that it does not inconvenience any of our customers too much.

Gloucester Pet Shop – Angell Pets Is Moving

Angell Pets opened in 2009 with our first Gloucester pet shop in Abbeymead. We were there for five years but unfortunately had to move when our lease expired and our landlord would not renew it (they wanted the premises for their own business). We took this as an opportunity to expand our business by moving to a larger property by the Gloucester Quays that enabled us to further expand our range and add additional services to our Gloucester pet shop, such as boarding for small animals, birds and reptiles. When we moved in there was a large car park 50m away and things looked good for the future growth of our business.

pet shop gloucester

Unfortunately we did not take into account the determination of Gloucester City Council to drive the small trader out of Gloucester in preference to the large out of town developments. The car park was closed 6 months after we moved in, despite the protestations of small businesses such as ours and the immediate result was a loss of 50% of our takings. We have been unable to get this business back and the frequent cry of “isn’t parking rubbish ’round here” has become like finger nails down a chalk board to us. Despite making large changes and reducing our overheads we are unable to sustain these losses so have got to move. It’s a shame because the premises itself was OK, just now in the wrong location and for other reasons too.

In addition to the parking fiasco, there are other reasons to move our Gloucester pet shop. Customers who follow us on Facebook will be aware of the issues we have had over the last three years with the power here. We have a lot of animals that rely on external heat and oxygenation. When the power goes off, it is a major issue for us and we have to do a lot of work keeping the animals safe and well. In addition we cannot trade without power which just adds to the financial pressure on the business. During the worst outage (14 hours), I had to bring up extra heating and insulation for the reptiles and stay at the shop until midnight, manually stirring the fish tanks to keep them oxygenated, all in the dark. It is 2017 for goodness sake and we have had more power cuts than the winter of discontent (yes, I am old enough to remember that).

Another major issue is the council and police’s inability to keep Gloucester City safe. We have had numerous incidents in the shop and in town whilst posting orders. Staff have been verbally and physically abused and threatened. It is unsafe for me to be absent from the premises as we never know when the next moron (or gang of morons!) is going to come in. Staff have been threatened with everything from spitting to having their throats slit. We have seen a woman outside the shop front beaten to the ground and punched whilst still down (losing teeth!) and no action has ever been taken by the police other than to “move them on”, in fact the operator told us that if I went out to the woman’s assistance I would be arrested. I can’t risk the safety of our staff. Also the level of theft is too high for us to sustain here as well.

So enough of the negatives, now the positive. We are moving again in October and it’s closer to our original customer base. The main thing is that there is ample FREE PARKING. Our new premises is likely to be in Hucclecote. The new location of our new Gloucester Pet Shop is ideal to serve our traditional customer base of Abbeymead and Abbeydale, Matson, Upton, Barnwood, Hucclecote, Longlevens, Churchdown and Brockworth. We will of course be maintaining our FREE LOCAL DELIVERY service for our customers in and around Gloucester, in Cheltenham and in Painswick. Of course our UK wide customers will not be affected by the move at all, other than to have wider choice.

So, onward and upward! Come and see us in our new Gloucester Pet Shop when it opens, even if it is just to have a nosey at the new place. It will take a little while to get everything just the way we want it and initially we may be running the two premises at the same time whilst I spend my nights moving fixtures, fittings and stock across.
