Wild Bird Food Cheaper at Independant Local Store

We wondered why we keep selling out of dried mealworms and other wild bird food so we had a look about. We couldn’t believe the prices other shops are charging. PAH are charging over twice as much as us for 500g bags of dried mealworms! How a large company like that, with much better buying power than little old us can justify it is beyond me. Anyway, here are some examples of price comparisons. Please note; these are not special offers or discounted lines, just our regular prices.

Dried Mealworms 100g Angell Pets £1.79 PAH £3.50 RSPB £3.99 Country Wide £3.99

Dried Mealworms 500g Angell Pest £7.49 PAH £15.50 RSPB £13.99

Wild Bird Seed 20kg Angell Pest £12.99 Jolleys £14.99 PAH £14.00 (We also bag it up into 1kg bags for 99p each)

Peanuts 1kg Angell Pest £2.49 PAH £4.25 RSPB £4.44 Country Wide £3.25

Sunflower Seed Black 1kg Angell Pets £1.75

Sunflower Hearts 20kg Angell Pets £32.99 (£1.65/kg) Jolleys £39.99 (£2.00/kg). We also sell 1kg bags for £1.99

Nyger seed 1kg Angell Pets £2.19 PAH £3.50 Country Wide £3.99

Fat balls no net 6 pack Angell Pets £1.29 PAH £2.00

Suet Pellets 550g Angell Pets £1.99 Jolleys £2.50 PAH £3.00

Not quite sure why anyone would drive all the way out to these facelss chainstores when you can get it cheaper in an independant local shop, the power of multi million pound advertising campaigns I suppose and I guess there is the reason for the hicked prices.

Birds Back In Stock

With the move from Southgate Street to our new shop in Hucclecote we have been unable to stock birds. Birds have a very efficient respiratory system, the down side of which is that they are susceptible to anything airborn. We have been decorating various sections of the shop since we moved in and so have been unable to stock birds due to the paint fumes. This is now completed in the main shop area and so we are now able to re-stock with birds.

The first of the birds came in last week and we now have the following in stock:-

We can also order in a wide range of other birds (check availability) and will vary our shop stock over time. So do check in to see what we have or what we can order.

Current Livestock

Our livestock list changes daily but every now and then I like to post a current list just to keep everyone up to speed with the types of animals we stock or can get. It is a bit of a double edged sword. If I post everything we can get, we are flooded with requests for animals that are not currently available. If on the other hand I post just what we have in at present, people get the impression that this is all we can get. So we have all our current stock on our web store (although it cannot be ordered from there, you need to come in for livestock) and I post a current list from time to time on here so people can see that it is changing regularly.

Here is the list as of today. Please note that it could well be very different tomorrow.

Angell Pets are moving!!!

Angell Pets has been based in Abbeymead for the last 5 years. Sadly our landlord saw fit to serve us with a notice to quit because he says he wants to put in an estate agents (virtually next door to the existing one!). Anyway we didn’t hang around but found ourselves a new premises right next to the Quays in Gloucester.

Angell Pets Pet shop Gloucester

We are moving to 168 – 170 Southgate Street, on the corner of Llanthony Road and Southgate Street. We are hoping to have the new shop OPEN by 24th November 2014. We will continue to trade from our existing Abbeymead store up until Friday the 21st. Over the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd we will be taking orders over the telephone or online through our webstore.

We appreciate the support our local customers in Abbeymead have given us over the past five years and offer FREE local delivery so we can still support those customers who cannot make it into the new shop. You can order online, over the telephone and if ordering over the telephone can pay by card or cash on delivery. Deliveries will be Monday to Friday and normally in the evening, although as the popularity of this service grows we may have to start putting on some deliveries during the day as well.

Any change, especially one forced upon you, is difficult to manage. We will try to ensure stock levels are maintained during the move but I am sure there is plenty of scope for some items to run a bit low. Restocking only normally takes us a couple of days if this does occur however.

We have thousands of lines plus all the shelving, animals and cages to move so it is not going to be easy but in the long run the extra space and cheaper rent and rates in the new shop is going to allow us to offer new services and promotions to our customers so hopefully the forced move will turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

Please pop in the Abbeymead shop during November as we will have some fantastic offers on as we reduce stock levels so there is less to move. Of course we would love you to visit us in our new premises after the 24th of November as well. Hopefully we will see you there.

Beemat and Birdmat planted and ready to go.

Beemat and Birdmat planted on April 18th. I got home from work to find Henry had dug over the garden, dug in the compost, prepared the soil, laid the mats, covered them with compost and watered them in. So that’s all the hard work done. All I have to do now is water them and wait for nature to take its course.

Birdmat Beemat

I’ll be posting as the plants begin to show through and grow and we can see if the manufacturer’s claims about germination rates for the Birdmat and Beemat are true. Hopefully I’ll be able to get some shots of the birds and the bees feeding when the plants are mature.
