A Southampton pet superstore has been crowned the Best Retailer of the Year at the national BizX Awards 2022.
Healthy Pet Store, based in Totton, was named the winner as a result of its sales growth since launching in 2014, as well as its innovation, and high levels of customer service.
The pet food and accessory retailer relocated in 2020 from a smaller store into a former supermarket with more than 30 chest freezers for own-label and branded foods.
Broadcasting personality Clare Balding presented the trophy to Healthy Pet Store’s managing director Deborah Burrows at the awards event, held at the Farnborough Exhibition Centre.
Deborah said: “Winning this award means so much to me and the team at Healthy Pet Store. Our vision is to be the most approachable, pet-friendly food and accessory retail brand, and I am delighted that our hard-work and commitment to animals and their caregivers has paid off.
“I am so excited for Healthy Pet Store to continue on its journey and to carry on building great relationships with our customers and suppliers.”
