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.

BeeMat and BirdMat NEW IN

BeeMat the easy way of providing flowers bees need and love and BirdMat the easy way of providing natural feed to attract birds to you garden have been launched at Angell Pets.

BeeMat

Sowing normal wildflower seedsinto a prepared bed actually produces a quite low gemination rate (20-30%). Using the BeeMat and BirdMat unique system of biodegradeable membranes and commercial horticulture grade seed produces germination rates of around 85% – much higher, giving a lot more growth, resulting in more flowers for the bees.

BeeMat comes in a handy (easilly postable!) pack of a 2 metre long, 50cm wide strip. This can be cut to any size to fit pots or planted in a strip on prepared ground.

BeeMat

The top layer of the BeeMat strip is a weak paper that enable water and light to pass through and the seedlings to break through when germinated. The bottom layer is a patented membrane that prevents the red light necessary for seed germination from passing through thus inhibiting the germination of unwanted annual weeds already in the soil. This aids the growth of the BeeMat plants by preventing competition from invasive weeds. Putting a layer of soil over the BeeMat wieghts it down and prevents perennial weeds from lifting the mat and also inhibititting their growth.

BirdMat BeeMat

BirdMat is a new companion product to BeeMat. Using the same technology but different seeds BirdMat provides seed heads to encourage birds into your garden. BirdMat works in exactly the same way producing the same excellent reults in terms of germination and growth and can be cut to size in the same way or planted in strips.

BirdMat

BirdMat also comes in a handy, postable pack making both BirdMat and BeeMat ideal gift items for birthdays, mothers day and due to the long shelf life of the seeds (much longer than packet seeds), Christmas as well.

BirdMat

So get out the wellies and start preparing the ground for you BeeMat and BirdMat (and coming soon ButterflyMat) and have a summer full of the smells, sights and sounds of a wildlife friendly garden which benefits you and much needed habitat and food that benefits the bees and the birds. You can purchase BeeMt and BirMat instore or online in Angell Pets webstore.

Pet shop closed for the holiday period?

Pet shop closed ? Does your local pet shop close over the holiday period? Many small independent pet shop businesses close over Christmas and new year, just at the time when their customers need them most.

pet shop gloucester

We are closed for Christmas day and most of Boxing day and most of New Years day (see my blog for exceptions). I work seven days a week and these are my only three days off a year. However I make sure that we are available through our online pet shop during these periods and that we are open on every other day of the holidays.

A lot of small pet shop owners complain about the challenges facing their business in the modern world then refuse to take the steps necessary to protect their pet shop from those challenges. They complain about big chains being open longer but won’t open seven days a week or on bank holidays or over the Christmas period. They complain about online pet supermarkets; faceless, uncaring giants that do not know anything about their products (all valid commentary) but then fail to invest in an online pet shop presence to compete with them(and in fact compete very well as they would be able to offer the help, advice, additional services and customer service the big pet shop companies and warehouses cannot).

Well we are a different sort of independant pet shop. We open when we are needed, we have an excellent online pet shop, we have an active Facebook page to interact with customers that can’t make it into the shop and we deliver free to our local community, offer nail clipping for small animals for only £1 with a free health check, free water testing (by someone who lectured on water quality on a diploma course not some little Saturday person who doesn’t know one piece of very soft anatomy from a bonier bit), offer micro chipping and lots of free advice. We support our local community with school talks and community events, charity prizes and free advertising of charity events.

Over the past few years (we have been open over 4 years now and we opened in the very depths of the recession too) we have seen independent pet shops close all over the country in the face of growing competition from pet superstores etc. (you know the ones) that should not be able to hold a candle to the small independent pet shop (and in reality everyone knows they can’t), and online warehouses. In all case, including that of friends of ours, none of them have taken up the challenge and put things in place to protect their business.

How many had an active Facebook page (so often, when I’ve talked to business owners they said things like “I don’t see the point” or have bothered to find out how to use it properly)? How many had an online pet shop or anything more than just a one page site with the business name and address on it. I was going to say better than nothing but not really. If it is not an actively updated page it may as well not exist, it won’t come up in any searches (unless someone was searching for that specific business name). How many still didn’t open on Sundays and bank holidays? How many closed at 5pm so anyone on their way home from work couldn’t just pop in and get their supplies? How many didn’t do free deliveries from their pet shop to their local community and so missed out on all those customers that just couldn’t make it in when the shop was open or found the shop just that little too far to travel?

Again our pet shop is different. That is why, to use terms you hear on the business slot on breakfast TV every day, our total sales and market share have continued to grow ever since we opened and with the launch of our online store, backed up with the knowledge of our staff on the products we sell, continues to grow almost daily.

So thank you to our regular pet shop customers who remain incredibly loyal, welcome to our new customers, online, on Facebook, on the telephone or on foot and we look forward to seeing you all in the new year if we don’t see you in our open pet shop between now and then. We have ordered in extra stock of all the best selling products to cope with the normal rush from customers who usually go elsewhere but can’t because they are closed or have run out.

Have a great Christmas and a prosperous New Year everyone.
