A THRIVING local pet products supply business has expanded into new premises in Greenock.
The Petshop Postie was launched in 2004 and has been owned and run by Kilmacolm couple, Charles and Patricia Briggs since September 2014.
The business offers a home delivery service, providing food and other items for a wide variety of animals including dogs, cats, birds and horses.
As well as shipping its products across the UK, The Petshop Postie also has a van carrying out a personal delivery service to pet owners in Inverclyde, Renfrewshire and Glasgow.
The business has enjoyed continued growth in the past two years, enabling Charles and Patricia to secure their new 1,750 square foot premises at Bogston Industrial Estate.
Charles said: “It is terrific to have secured the new premises, and this enables us to have a much more professional and reliable business base for the next stage of our growth.
“We have built up a healthy book of business with loyal clients who enjoy the range of products and personal touch that The Petshop Postie provides.
“The new premises are ideal, and its location and accessibility from the A8 for clients are perfect for those headed to and from work or the nearby retail park.”
Bogston Industrial Estate at Port Glasgow Road is owned by Inverclyde businessmen Sandy and James Easdale’s Dalglen Property Investments and is now fully occupied.
This latest tenancy is a further successful letting for Gourock-based commercial property services firm, Bowman Rebecchi, who acted as agents on behalf of the owners. www.bowreb.com
Andrew Bowman, director of Bowman Rebecchi, said: “We are delighted to welcome The Petshop Postie to Bogston Industrial Estate and the unit is an excellent fit for its next stage of development.
“The landlord has invested heavily into the estate to create smart individual units that are the right size for growth businesses, and as a result, we’ve seen a higher level of interest in their availability.
“We would like to wish Charles and Patricia continued success with their business plans, and we expect the local community to take advantage of its products and services and support local traders.”
