Is Your Pet part of Your Family? Competition Time!!

Hello Everyone!

Did you notice our new tag line on our logo – “they’re not just pets, they’re family” which we added this week?

   

Many pet owners think of their pets as part of their family – and we are sure you do too! So how about sending in pictures of your pets to show that they are a part of your family. The best picture will win a pet-related prize!! Just make sure the picture shows your family – with your pet.

Send your entries in to us via our website, by email to bathpets@aol.com, or put them up on our Facebook site NotJustPets at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Notjustpets-Pet-Shops-in-Bath-Frome/103981576322758 or via Twitter to @NotJustPets

Monday 4th July – Independents’ Day for Retail – PLUS 10% OFF for all our customers

 

On Monday 4th July this year we will be celebrating Independents’ Day for Retail outlets all over the UK.  Help us to celebrate this special day.  We are offering 10% off to all our customers on all purchases on Monday 4th July on everything except livestock. Our staff are dressing up in fancy dress too! So – come on down and support your local independent retailer on Monday!

So, what is Independents’ day?

Skillsmart Retail and the National Skills Academy for Retail are teaming up with local retailers across the country on 4th July to celebrate Independents’ Day.

Everyone is encouraged to buy at least one item from a local independent retailer and celebrate diversity on the high street. We’ve teamed up with Mary Portas the Queen of Shops herself, trade associations such as the NFRN and Association of Town Centre Managers, along with national, local and trade press to make sure the campaign is a success.

Supporting independent retailers

Skillsmart will also champion the skills great independent retailers have and show the public that their local shopkeeper is not only a vital service, but someone who wears many hats; they are the accountant, sales assistant, buyer and often everything in-between.

How can you get involved? 

Shop local and tell us what is your favourite shop in your local high street – and if you like our pet stores, don’t forget to come in and support us – and tell all your friends! You can “like” us on Facebook too – https://www.facebook.com/pages/Notjustpets-Pet-Shops-in-Bath-Frome/103981576322758 or follow us on Twitter – “@NotJustPets”.

Bath Pets Open Day at Larkhall for National Pet Month

We had a fabulous day on Saturday 30th April for our Open Day for National Pet Month 🙂

We had some lovely visitors and doggies supporting us on the day including Tag, Sid, Trixie and Lucy from @OldiesClub (https://www.oldies.org.uk) the senior dog rescue and rehoming organisation and beautiful greyhounds and lurchers from Greyhound & Lurcher Welfare & Rescue (https://www.glwr.org.uk) We also had fabulous support from Royal Canin (thank you Jasmine) and James Wellbeloved (thank you Sam) who gave out advice and samples to our customers on pet nutrition.

Lee brought his lovely ferrets Lily and Daisy and talked to lots of people about ferret handling and care, we had Fred & Barney guineapigs and Anny brought Cedric and Lilli her friendly rats and Deagol, the cutest, smoothest hamster ever!

Mrs Gale made some fabulous cupcakes and all the staff baked cakes and biscuits to sell on the day.

.

Pippa from Ashman Jones Veterinary Surgery came down to chat to our customers and give advice and Taiga our young German Shepherd customer won first prize in the raffle – £75 to spend on nommy treats and goodies!         

The staff all dressed up on the day and the raffle, facepainting and cakes all raised funds for Oldies Club and the Larkhall Festival charity (amounts to be published later). Greyhound & Lurcher Welfare & Rescue also raised money on the day selling their lovely cards and collars and from donations from customers and Cats Protection Bath also joined us for the day.  

Janine showed lots of customers our spider skins and snake sheds and the youngsters were particularly fascinated to learn how so many creatures shed their skin.

Huge thanks to everyone who helped make the day such a success, to the staff for working so hard and the charities and suppliers for supporting us on the day and most of all, our lovely customers! National Pet Month… Done!
