TASMANIAN family- owned business Pets Domain is back in the state, opening a new flagship store in Cambridge on 10 December.
Many locals will remember Pets Domain stores, which were located across the state. The company temporarily left Tasmania to spread its wings and expand into mainland regional Australia, and refine its business operations and product selection.
An increase in pet ownership in Australia since the start of contributed to Pets Domain’s continuing success in recent years, and the company now has 65 stores across the country.
But Pets Domain came from very humble beginnings. CEO Jason van Peelen began selling live fish out of his garage in northern Tasmania as a teenager, before taking the leap and opening pet stores with his father.
Despite its growth, Pets Domain has kept its core values: providing customers with the products they need at affordable prices and being passionate about pet care.
And CEO Jason’s passion for fish has endured, with the new Cambridge store featuring a dedicated AquaZone room with more than 100 tanks housing an assortment of freshwater and marine fish and live aquatic plants.
Located at the Cambridge Homemakers Centre in Kennedy Drive, Pets Domain Cambridge celebrated its grand opening on Saturday 10 December with a variety of experts in-store to help with any curly questions that pet parents might have.
Josiah Pit from leading Australian aquarium fish supplier Aquarium Industries was available to field fish-related questions, and pet fashion brand Dan & Sam’s head designer Danielle Worthington spoke about the inspiration behind the brand.
A Royal Canin dog and cat food expert was on hand to help ensure people’s pets are eating the best possible diet, and a Nature’s Best expert could provide advice on other animals ranging from rabbits through to horses.
Pets Domain Cambridge stocks an extensive range of dog and cat products from well-respected specialty pet food brands such as Royal Canin, Hill’s Science Diet, ADVANCE and Supercoat.
Pets Domain is the home for all pets so small animals, birds and reptiles don’t miss out, with an extensive range of products available for them too. The company’s return to Tasmania also makes it the state’s only Tasmanian-owned large pet specialty retailer.
Pets Domain offers monthly specials that ease the burden of caring for pets. Extra-hot opening specials will run until Christmas Eve.
Customers can also use the DIY Dog Wash, which will be FREE as part of the opening until Christmas Eve. After then the DIY Dog Wash will be an affordable $10 per wash.
The Pets Domain team are passionate about the care and welfare of all pets, and strive to provide pet parents with everything they need to care for and spoil their pets – which is why the company introduced the +PLUS Club Loyalty Program, ensuring you get the best price possible every single day.
Pets Domain also supports pets in the community that may not be so lucky by holding adoption days, and welcomes all submissions from local shelters and rescue groups.
The business also offers a free Click and Collect service. Simply purchase items from the online store (petsdomain.com.au) and receive a notification when the purchased item can be picked up in-store.
