Winner winner, chicken dinner!
We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been named Britain’s Favourite Independent Pet Shop.
Competition for this accolade, awarded by sustainable pet brand Beco, was high and we battled it out with hundreds of independent pet shops across the UK to bring the title home to Cornwall. Nominations were made by the public, which is testament to how well thought of Slickers is when it comes to products, service and sustainability and the incredible efforts we go to in support of local customers and communities.
“We’re overjoyed to have won this award – the Padstow dog community is so important to me, and I love being able to look after them with my brilliant team. We are real nature lovers, and so being able to encourage others to keep sustainability at the heart of their lives with their dogs is a real privilege.”
We were commended for our ethos, knowledgeable staff, variety of quality dog toys, food, and accessories, and our dedication to only stocking items that are eco-friendly.
George Bramble, founder of Beco, says; “Britain has always been a nation of dog lovers, but never more so than since the start of the pandemic, with millions more people choosing to become pet owners. With the Beco Award, we wanted to celebrate the incredible work independent pet shops across the country do to look after our beloved pets, and especially whilst trying to look after the planet at the same time, and we are thrilled to have found such a worthy winner in Slickers Dog House.”
With localism on the rise, supporting independent high street shops is more important than ever, and Andrew Goodacre, Chief Executive British Independent Retailers Association, says; “Congratulations to Slickers Dog House. Pet ownership has increased during this pandemic and I believe that independent pet shops now have an even more important role in the local com-munities, offering quality products and advice to people who want what is best for their pets. In-dependent retailers are integral to local communities and this shop represents all that is good in retailing.”
