Big Pet Store

Established in 1991 as ‘The Little Pet Company’, named after founder Shirley Little started as a market stall in Darlaston. A market stall in Dudley soon followed, leading eventually to the business’s 3,000 sq ft premises at The Big Pet Store, Hereward Rise in Halesowen. A spokesman said: “From the early days, Shirley had a strict policy of doing what is best for pets, selling quality products, giving out the best advice – even though selling mainstream brands would have been more profitable. To this day that policy continues. “All the staff are animal lovers and always want the best for our customers’ pets. This is why we pride ourselves on our motto ‘the pet lovers’ pet store’.


“We look to stock the best possible food, treats, and accessories for pets and always have an open approach to new ideas and better quality products

“We pride ourselves on being different from most pet stores, treating your pet as one of the family and only providing the best quality products. This is why all pets are welcome in the store. We love seeing them and getting to know them.
