Maxi Zoo has confirmed that it will open a new store in Sligo Retail Park in September this year. Fit-out works have already begun, and this will be their first store in Sligo.

The store will be over 7,000 sq. ft and much to the delight of pet lovers in the local community and the surrounding catchment areas, it will stock their extensive range of pet products.

Maxi Zoo is Ireland’s largest pet retailer with 20 stores in the Republic of Ireland, and opened its first store in Ballincollig, Cork in 2006 and the company currently employs over 170 staff. It supports numerous local animal welfare charities and is Ireland’s largest pet retailer and part of the Fressnapf Group, with over 1,650 stores across Europe with more than 8,000 products in their range.

Paddy O’Connor, Asset Manager from Sigma Retail Partners, said “Maxi Zoo is a very strong brand in Ireland and Europe and we are delighted that they will be joining the tenant line-up in Sligo Retail Park. Maxi Zoo also has stores in two of our retail parks that we manage, Bray Retail Park and Waterford Retail Park, and their business continues to perform strongly despite the current challenging times. We are confident they will continue their success in the new Sligo store and warmly welcome them into the retail park and wish them all the best.”

Darren Spoonley from Maxi Zoo said “Maxi Zoo Ireland are looking forward to opening our first store in Sligo as part of our ongoing expansion plan, bringing our store network to 21. We are excited to bring our huge range of pet products to new customers. Our highly trained teams will be on hand to advise on all your pet needs and highlight our fantastic prices and offers.”
