Our Pet Shop

Colchester Pet Stores is an independent family business now being run by the fourth generation of the same family.  We have been trading in Colchester for over fifty years and have built up a wealth of experience in all aspects of pet welfare.

Colchester Pet Stores holds a five star licence issued by the local authority.  In 2017 we were proud to be runners up in the Petquip national competition to find the best small pet shop in the country.  Out of over 3,500 entries we were in the top three.

Our Pet Products

We provide a wide range of products for many different types of animals. From foods, to toys and treats, our local pet shop will have everything you need to keep your beloved pet well cared for.

“When I needed a new harness for my dog I found a big selection in this shop and they obviously knew their products well and were able to advise me the best one to buy.  They also offered to change it for a different size if I wasn’t sure it was right after I had tried it.  I was amazed at the large selection in this small but very well stocked shop and will be using it for all my dog needs. “

“After reading recently in the local paper that Colchester Pet Stores had been nominated out of 3,500 pet shops across the Country for “Best Pet Shop” this does not surprise me.  I have 2 dogs and 3 cats and have been using Colchester Pet Stores for the past 9 years.  Mark and Terry have years of experience and knowledge in the pet industry, along with a friendly smile are always on hand with any questions I have.  I absolutely love this shop and highly recommend their knowledge and products.”

“I have been a regular customer here for many years, great range of products, competitively priced and the 2 regular guys are friendly and knowledgeable.  An absolute gem, this place.  Found a fantastic range of top-quality branded products, all at prices well below what we expected.  Owners are always ready to offer expert advice too – My new favourite Pet shop! Thanks.”
