Welsh pet supply store, PetPlace has said having a strong connection with its suppliers and partners has been “crucial during the pandemic”.
In a statement managing director, Sion Pritchard believed that working closely with brands such as Vital Pet Group and Adios, “enabled them to manage an increase in online orders during the initial lockdown and continue to provide for the needs of their customers in the following months”.
It comes as the store marks its 50th anniversary, however due to Covid-19 restrictions the business has not been able to celebrate in the way it originally intended.
Pritchard said:“This is not the 50th anniversary we expected to have but I am proud of the way our team responded and would like to thank everyone who supported us throughout the year, including the new businesses that came on board as suppliers.
“While it has been incredibly challenging, there have been lessons learned and we go into next year with a positive approach and with pride for the sector we are a part of.”
Rob Newsome, director of sales and operations at Danish Design, added: “We are proud to be long- standing suppliers of PetPlace and it is really great to see their continued growth and success through the pandemic.
“We have strived to keep going and supply our customers as normal through 2020 and delighted that PetPlace has shown their support and launched our new AW20 range in past weeks. Massive congratulations on the anniversary and all the best for the next 50 years.”
