Pet Essentials Whangarei

Pet Essentials Whangarei was started by Mike Tasker on the 21st December 1997.  Originally the business was named Four Paws Pantry, and was located in the Okara Shopping Centre.  

It was a bold move by Mike coming from a background as a Mechanic and Owning Vehicle Testing Stations, moving away from the world of four wheels and into the world of 4 legs! Opening the store in the month of December meant it was hard work coming straight in to the busiest time of the year but it also meant the exposure of the business was well covered!  

 

Mike then expanded and moved the business which then became Pet Essentials to another part of the Okara Complex in which it stayed for a further 7 years and then after years of growing the business and the extra demand due to growth of Pet owners in Whangarei, Mike Decided that the time was right to move into a Larger building as a Destination store away from the foot traffic of a retail complex.  In which you will find us now, currently into our 2nd year in the new premises and we love it!  The extra space has allowed us to broaden our horizons with the inclusion of a Dog Grooming service and Live Fish & Aquariums and of course the ability to expand our ranges and hold even more products for your Pets! 

 

Pet Essentials has been and is currently owned locally and there are no plans to change that,  We have been supported by a fantastic local customer base for years and we hope that continues for years to come!
