HayPigs! secures deal to stock over 150 Petbarn stores in Australia


Ahead of its second appearance at PATS Telford this weekend, small furry accessories brand, HayPigs! had some exciting news to share. With help from its 'pawtners' Guinea Pigs Australia, the award-winning company has just signed a deal to stock over 150 Petbarn stores in Australia.


HayPigs! MD and self-proclaimed Ringmaster, Rik Cridland is overjoyed with the news. "This is obviously really exciting news and we are delighted that our range has been so warmly welcomed over in Australia,” he said


“We can't thank Niomie, Steve and the team at Guinea Pigs Australia enough for their hard work and dedication in helping make this happen. It's humbling to think that we will be enriching the lives of so many small furries across the length and breadth of Australia."


Steven Ferrante of Guinea Pigs Australia had this to add,:"Guinea Pigs Australia is so excited to be officially launching HayPigs! into Petbarn, Australia. With Petbarn's fantastic reach across Australia it will give more guinea pig owners the opportunity to access high quality, fun and creative enclosure accessories. HayPigs! product range will be available on Petbarn online and at over 150 Petbarn stores by December 2018."


In a triple celebration, HayPigs! were also thrilled to have made it to the final of the PetQuip Awards for Marketing Project of the Year and also the Essex Business Awards for Best New Business. HayPigs! co-founder Helen said: "It's just lovely to have been recognised for all our hard work. As HayPigs! is a family business, there have been a lot of sacrifices over the last couple of years, so this is a great opportunity to give ourselves a pat on the back and let our hair down a bit!"
