Best UK Independent Pet Retailer 2023 - Pet Stop - Market Deeping

About Us

Opened in 2017, we are incredibly proud to be an independent family run business based in Market Deeping.

When you visit Pet Stop you will find friendly welcoming advisors to help you chose the pet care products for your pet. There are no big supermarket brands here. We focus on seeking out a huge range of value for money pet products (over 6,500) to offer you an extensive choice that’s right for your pets.You and your pets are at the core of our business. We are here to help in any way we can from advice on treats, dental care, what harness to buy – just ask us. For us it’s not a good day if we haven’t been on the floor cuddling at least one dog.

All of our staff have a real passion for animals and have over 25 years combined experience in pet care.

Our friendly, honest advice is simply what we are about. We’re here to listen to what you and your pet needs and then we can guide you and what products will be suitable. If we think your dog will destroy an expensive bed, we will advise you on a cheaper option.
