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.

New range of invertebrate tanks now in stock

We have just negotiated a new deal with a local invertebrate and frog vivarium manufacturer to supply Angell Pets ® branded equipment. These high quality tanks have just made it into stock this week.

So far, the range includes glass vivaria for mantids and other arboreal insects, arboreal spiders and terrestrial or burrowing spiders and other invertebrates (such as centipedes and millipedes). Over time we will expand the range further and we can also have custom sizes made to order. Keep a look out soon for a range of amphibian tanks.

Inverebrate faunarium

The smallest vivarium in the new range is a 20cm (8″) glass cube, with a steel mesh vent in the back and fully opening sliding glass top that is self locking. This makes for a very secure tank for smaller spiders or other inverts.

invertebrate tank

The mantis tank is a 20cmx20cmx30cm arboreal glass viv. with a fully steel meshed top (including a support bar to aid fitting of branches etc.) and sliding, front opening, self locking doors. Suitable for all mantids and stick insects.

mantis tank

The arboreal spider tank is similar to the mantis tank but instead of a fullly meshed top it has a glass top with a mesh vent to enable/encourage nesting in the top corner and to help maintain higher humidity if required.

tarantula tank

The terrestrial/burrowing invetebrate tank is larger at 40cmx30cmx25cm high. It has a full width steel mesh vent (not aluminium, which a tarantula will just rip to shreds with its fangs!) and fully opening sliding, self locking glass doors (The maker held an empty one upside down and gave it a good shake by way of demonstration and the doors didn’t move). For cleaning the whole lid assembly can be removed. These are secure tanks, suitable for the most persistent escape artist.

invertebrate vivarium

As the manufacturer is local (we collect the stock ourselves) and whilst quality is maintained but costs are kept to a minimum (no expensive advertising and marketing to be paid for), prices are very keen. You get a lot of specialist equipment for your money.

Inverebrate cube £13.99

Mantis tank £19.99

Arboreal spider tank £19.99

Invertebrate tank £29.99

All are available on our website. These make fantastic display tanks for you favourite invertebrate and compliment our existing range superbly.
