Barclays Bank branch turned into pet store


A former Barclay Bank in Gloucester has been turned into a pet store.


Angell Pets has moved from its Southgate Street premises in the city to the bank building in Hucclecote.


The Barclays branch in Hucclecote closed in June 2017 as part of a nationwide programme aimed at reducing the number of branches.


According to pet shop owner Richard Angell (right) it took seven people to shift the vault door (pictured below) of the bank.


The premises benefits from a large car park, making costomer access to the new pet store a lot easier.


The deal to obtain the premises was brokered by property consultancy Bruton Knowles.


William Matthews, from Bruton Knowles’ Gloucester office, said: "We helped owner Richard Angell move to the previous location at Southgate and were happy he called us back for this new move to Hucclecote."
