Pets at Home have the biggest number of stores but small businesses still rule the roost

There are some 3,500 pet shops and approximately 600 specialist aquatic centres employing over 15,000 people in the UK, according to the Pet Industry Federation. When you consider the biggest retailer chain Pets at Home currently owns 417 stores, it's clear to see that independents are still the major force in the industry.

Here's a quick guide to how many stores are currently run by some of the major pet retail chains:
  • Pets at Home – 417 stores, including four high street-based dog outlets called Barkers. The chain also have 359 vet practices on their premises
  • Pets Corner – 161 stores folowing the acquisition of PamPurredPets
  • Jollyes – 61 stores
  • Just for Pets - 23 stores
