On April 30th, 2016 Hounds opened its doors to both human & Hound. 11 months later, we have exciting news.
After an amazing start, Hounds is on the move but fear not, we are not moving far. As many of you will know we love Newcastle under Lyme and we want to keep Hounds here. We will be moving into No 2 Fogg street, next door to Rawr Superfood & Juice Bar, where we will have double the floor space and upstairs for extra stock.
We have questions I hear you say?! Well, hopefully I can answer any queries you may have.
When we signed the lease to our little shop on Merrial Street we always hoped one day we would maybe outgrow and move to somewhere larger. Never in a million dog years did we think this would happen so soon, and it is thanks to you guys that it has.
So the move, we will soon be situated on Fogg street, next door to Rawr. It is so close to our current shop you may catch us carrying shelving from one to the other but the new shop is situated closer to the Iron Market, enabling us to be more involved in town centre events.
Hounds will stay open, no need to bulk buy. Our current shop will stay open up until the new shop is ready. Leah will be in store whenever I am busy preparing the new shop. The online store will also still be available www.houndsonline.co.uk and we offer click & collect along with a delivery service.
We will share as many updates as we can, this is an exciting time for us and we want to share the adventure with you, follow @houndsnewcastle
We will be stocking even more than before. We have a long list of new brands we will be bringing into Hounds including Raw dog food, more healthy natural dry food & treats, toys, and accessories.
Events are one of the big reasons for the move. They have become so popular and we are so happy you love them as much as we do and we have even more wonderful ideas we would like to make happen. We will have more space for more events and more dogs to join in the fun.
Weight management is something we feel very passionately about, you may have spotted the scales in-store. However, we just haven't had the room to use them properly yet. The new store will give us a space specifically for weight checking and dietary advice.
Opening - we have a few ideas. Watch this space. After all there ain't no party like a Hounds party! So rest assured this will be no different!
Most importantly Hounds will always be Hounds. A shop just for Dogs and their owners. We are only growing in size to supply you with more choice of great quality stock. Our passion and love for Dogs and their health will stay the same.
Thank you for all your support
