FOND FAREWELL: Gerrards Cross’ only dedicated pet shop says goodbye to town after 12 years

 Published on: 9th June 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

The only dedicated pet shop in Gerrards Cross has closed down after 12 years, and will be holding a clearance sale later this month.

First opening on Station Road in 2011 as part of a Bucks-wide chain, Desborough Pets will open for the final time between June 20 and June 24 for an everything-must-go sale of existing stock.

Former managing director Russell Lacey, who set up the Desborough Pets business in 1996 and sold it in 2015, said: “The people of Gerrards Cross were so amazing when we opened. We had good fun, and it’s why I’m putting so much effort into this sale.

“One of my favourite memories is when an episode of Not Going Out was filmed there in 2012. At one point, Lee Mack was behind the counter, and a customer came in, picked up some dog food and put it on the counter, oblivious to the filming. It was a shock for her when she realised!”

Several former employees will gather together to help out with the sale.

All those who have lost their jobs from the closure have found new employment.
