Wedding Bells over Grumpy’s Pet Shop

We’re happy (nay thrilled) to announce that at long last Richard is tying the knot. It’s taken him forty long years to find his Mrs Right which means that next Friday 20th May, 2016 our shop will be closing early 12.30, so that Jules can attend this auspicious occasion. We understand that there will over […]


We’re very excited about a new dog food called Piccolo made especially for small breed dogs. We have been told that it will be available from April 1st so watch our shelves.  Small breed dogs are renowned for being ‘fussy eaters’ but we have been assured that the Piccolo kibble is among the tastiest of […]

Kernel Kat, tried, tested …and loved!

It’s quite common in our trade to hear from suppliers who ‘claim’ to have the best products, so it’s really refreshing when something comes along that throws everything else into the shade and meets the claim of the Sales Rep.  One such product is a new cat litter that we have recently taken on called […]

We’re celebrating :)

Everybody likes to poke fun when someone they know is having a big ‘0’ birthday, so without further ado I can say…. “RICHARD PAGE IS 40″( yay) This blog isn’t going to be one of those filled with clichés about getting old or life begins…. etc Richards been my business partner now since  2001 and I can honestly […]

Blink and you could miss this….

I hear you cry, well yes […]

Marvellous Pet Munchies Stand

There’s nothing like a new project to get Richard really excited even when he’s got ‘man-flu’ and today’s little distraction was a new display stand.  It’s a sight to behold watching him put together a stand that arrives in millions of pieces (slight exaggeration) with minimal instructions (fairly accurate), it’s fair to say that he would […]

Dear little lad…

A beautiful 9 week old Boxer pup called Milo came in for a visit on Saturday and brightened up our day, he was a super little pup! He was very calm and laid back (long may it reign ) and he really  enjoyed a little rummage on the lower shelves in the treat aisle, luckily […]
