A pet shop and dog grooming salon are the latest local businesses to set up shop in Peterborough at Werrington Business Centre, confirms property agent Barker Storey Matthews who acted on behalf of the landlord in negotiating the new lease.

Mutts-Nutts and Lindsay’s Dog Grooming have joined forces to begin a new venture trading from premises at 94 Werrington Business Centre – a 126.79 sqm (1,364 sq ft) unit at the Centre which is on the south side of the A15, Werrington Parkway.

Business owners and company directors, Bev Nicholson and Lindsay Stewart decided to come together to look for premises last year (2017) - both having traded successfully, but independently for a number of years. Bev ran her dog boutique online and Lindsay offered mobile grooming services to clients in the Stamford and Market Deeping areas.

With both businesses having such a calibre of canine clientele, Bev and Lindsay were keen to find the right premises in which not only to continue to serve their loyal customers but also to showcase their services to a new set of discerning dog owners in the city and surrounding area.

The unit at the Werrington Business Centre offered just such a high quality, highly visible unit with on-site parking at an established and popular commercial location. 

Opening as a ‘Santa Paws’ grotto before Christmas under licence, the full fit out of for the new pet shop and salon commenced once the lease was signed last month (January).

The transformation of the unit sees a special salon cabin installed in which the dogs are groomed – away from the distractions of the retail area of the pet shop.

Speaking on behalf of both owners, Bev Nicholson said, “We couldn’t be happier with how the property side of the businesses has come together. 

“The location suits our canine clientele and their owners and the unit has been easy enough to adapt to suit the needs of the pet shop and the salon services.

“We are attracting a lot of positive interest and new enquiries.”
