Maxi Zoo to open 19th store in Gorey, Co. Wexford

Europe’s number one pet retailer Maxi Zoo is set to open its nineteenth Irish store at The Mill Retail Park in Gorey.

The new 5,000 square foot store opens to the public on Thursday 16th November 2017 with the creation of 10 new jobs.

Maxi Zoo has experienced significant growth in Ireland since opening its first store in Ballincollig, Cork in 2006.

“We love animals and we provide the best advice and products that pet parents can find. We know that happier pets make happier people,” said Darren Spoonley, Head of Sales and Marketing at Maxi Zoo Ireland.

All staff working at the store have been trained as pet experts and are available to share their knowledge in animal nutrition and welfare with pet parents.

“Our in-store pet experts are always at hand to provide customers with exactly what they are looking for and that is why we are such a successful brand,” said Darren.

Maxi Zoo invites pet parents to bring their pet with them while shopping. Each store provides a free pet weighing service and regular free demo and information events about how to provide the best care and nutrition for pets. All 19 Maxi Zoo stores support local pet charities.

Maxi Zoo is celebrating the opening of the new store in Gorey with 20% off all stock, including existing offers, up to and including Sunday 19th November. Customers who make a purchase will also receive a voucher entitling them to 10% off the cost of their next purchase.

The store’s opening celebrations include a Family Fun Day on Saturday, 18th November from 12 p.m to 4 p.m. with face-painting and a visit by Dave’s Jungle and the Maxi Zoo mascots Max the Dog and Izoo the Cat. The free fun event will give children of all ages the opportunity to learn more about and to get close to giant snakes, tarantulas, iguanas and millipedes
