Brett’s Pets is a family-run pet shop, based in Chorley, Lancashire. It provides customers with a range of pet foods and products along with information and husbandry advice on most animals and exotic reptiles.
The shop is owned and run by 27-year old Brett Weller who received a Start Up Loan of £9,500 in April 2013. Brett offers a wide range of pets, from the relatively conventional options of fish, rabbits and guinea pigs, to slightly more unusual pets such as water dragons, geckos and tarantulas.
Since Brett’s Pets got up-and-running it has built a large and enthusiastic customer base. This is evidenced by the glowing reviews for the shop online, as well as the Facebook follower count.
The business has evolved over time and now houses Chorley Vets on the premises. This is a fully equipped veterinary surgery with a team of three vets, one nurse and two trainees, who can provide treatment and care for all types of pet in the area.
The success of Brett’s Pets has clearly not gone unnoticed as in March 2017 he was awarded Best Young Micro-entrepreneur at the Responsible Finance Awards. Brett is passionate about working with animals, which has clearly led to a successful business.
