Europe’s number one pet retailer Maxi Zoo is set to open its eighteenth Irish store at Clarehall Retail Park in Malahide in north Dublin.


The new 800 square foot store, owned by Cork couple Tony and Alice Cross, opens to the public on Thursday 14th April 2016 with the creation of 15 new jobs.


Maxi Zoo has experienced significant growth in Ireland since opening its first store in Ballincollig, Cork in 2006 and plans to open up to 15 new stores across the country over the next five years.


“We love animals and we provide the best advice and products that pet parents can find. We know that happier pets make happier people,” said Alice Cross Executive Director of Maxi Zoo Ireland.


All staff working at the store have been trained as pet experts and are available to share their knowledge in animal nutrition and welfare with pet parents.


“Our in-store pet experts are always on hand to provide customers with exactly what they are looking for and that is why we are such a successful brand,” said Alice.


Maxi Zoo invites pet parents to bring their pet with them while shopping. Each store also provides a free pet weighing service and regular free demo and information events about how to provide the best care and nutrition for pets. All 18 Maxi Zoo stores support local pet charities.

Maxi Zoo will acelebrate the new store opening on Sunday, 17th April with a Family Fun Day. Pythons, snakes, scorpions, snapping turtles, water dragons, giant millipedes and lizards will be available to meet children at the free event from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.. Families can also enjoy face-painting and a visit by Maxi Zoo mascots Max the Dog and Izoo the Cat.
