Pets at Home outlet now open at Kingsway Retail Park, Derby. September 2012.

The new Pets at Home outlet opened at Kingsway Retail Park, Derby at 9am on Friday 21st September 2012. I dare say that if you were in the area over the weekend you would have seen the massive green advertising balloon floating high over Kingsway Retail Park. The car park was extreamly busy on Saturday and Sunday.
You may remember that Pets at home used to be located at Kingsway Retail Park a few year back but left in the early 2000s, well now its back and a better store.

  1. Hi Andy, From Aus I just want to know what has happened to the Battle of Britain window from RR Nightingale Rd. Thanks Rachel nonamecreek@bigpond.com
