THE Pet Centre, in Minehead, has been voted Retailer of the Year in the annual Pet Product Retailer Association awards.

It won the prize, having been judged against over pet retailers across the UK on its business etiquette, professionalism, reputation and store ambience.

The business was established over 30 years ago, and present owner Peter Dimambro has been running it for over 20 years.

The shop was judged to offer customers excellent nutritional information and it runs a fat clinic for the more portly pets.

Peter Dimambro said: “I’m overwhelmed. It’s an award for the whole shop and a massive achievement for the staff.
