Supermarket launches ‘biggest ever pet range’

Supermarket Aldi is launching its ‘biggest ever’ pet range, with a help from the UK’s largest dog, 16.5 stone Balthazar the Great Dane.

Aldi is launching a brand new range for dogs and cats which they claim could save owners over £4,700 throughout a pets life compared to other retailers.

A selection of pet products will be available in stores from Thursday 22nd February. From toys and towels, to cages and coats, the range is only available for a limited time.

The supermarket claims that owners can make savings on Aldi’s Specialbuy Pet Beds, which will save owners an 62 percent. Other savings that Aldi claims can be made include:

  • A 45 percent saving on pet crates
  • 63 percent on carriers
  • 60 percent on pet food
  • 67 percent off poo bags (dog owners will get through a massive 13,140 poo bags in their dog’s lifetime!)
  • Nearly a £300 saving on fleeing and deworming

Vinnie Monte-Irvine, Balthazar’s owner, comments: “There’s no denying that Balthazar is an extremely large dog and the associated costs of his upkeep are above average. It’s great to see such a vast array of products available at Aldi at very reasonable prices – pet owners could save a considerable amount of money – especially owners like myself who get through above average amounts!”

Julie Ashfield, joint managing director of Corporate Buying at Aldi UK, comments: “At Aldi we know how important our furry family members are and we’re committed to providing only the best for pets and their owners. This dedicated pet range is available at unbeatable prices and will help UK families to lower the overall costs of owning a pet, yet maintaining a high standard of care and quality of life.”
