It is with a very heavy heart that we are announcing the closure of Unique Pets Grooming, Pool for Paws, and ultimately the shop in Aylesbury. Between the loss of our services and reduced sales due to Covid-19, we are currently haemorrhaging an average of £9,000 per week. In order to try and protect a few jobs and keep the company going in some form, we need to significantly reduce our overheads.
Sadly this means closing our grooming and swimming services. All grooming appointments that were already booked will be honoured, and we will be in touch over the next few weeks to arrange this, however the pool will not be put back in action. Please bear with us while we work our way through the diary and wait to be contacted, we will get to you soon and are working as fast as we can.
We will also be closing the Aylesbury shop next month, but we will be maintaining our online ordering service for collection and we will still be offering daily deliveries in the local area. Collection will continue from Aylesbury for the time being, but we will be transferring the operation to our warehouse in Whitchurch. In the future, ordering will improve dramatically as we launch a proper online shop – watch this space.
Training will continue and classes booked before Covid-19 will be honoured and then future sessions will be relocated. The Winslow shop will remain open as normal Monday – Saturday 9am-5pm.
We are grateful for your patience and understanding while we reorganise the business. Please join us as we extend our heartfelt gratitude and support towards our team as this has been a very difficult and devastating decision, not only as a business, but with the lives it will affect. They have been true superheroes and worked way above and beyond what could have been expected to get us this far. We can’t thank the team enough in general, and not least for the extra effort they have shown these last 8 weeks.
Jen, Lu & Tom
