Pets Corner reopens shops in garden centres amid coronavirus pandemic

Pets Corner has reopened its stores in 15 garden centres across the UK amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Garden centres temporarily closed its operations,following government regulations to close all non-essential shops last month.

Dean Richmond, Pets Corner CEO, said at the time: “Sadly, despite being allowed to trade as an essential retailer, some of our stores have had to close in our garden centre locations. We are trying to get them reopened and are in discussions with our landlords regarding this.”

Following discussion with landlords, Pets Corner announced some of its stores will reopen at the garden centres, which include, Bicester Avenue Garden Centre in Oxfordshire, Essex-based Upminster Garden Centre, Tunbridge Wells Garden Centre in Kent and Lower Morden Garden Centre in Surrey.

The company also revealed all Pets Corner stores open will be offering NHS staff 15%.

It said: “As we live through these challenging times, we know it’s important to give back to the heroes who are working around the clock to keep us all safe; our NHS. As a huge thank you, we are offering 15% off some of our most treasured brands in store, as a helping paw to all of the NHS workers. 

“While everyone in the NHS is busy supporting us, we know that their furry friends are equally supporting them with their unconditional love (and kisses). We hope that this will help them in some way during these tough times.”
