I am Proud of my store because I’ve personally seen our growth since I joined the store. We know that there is always room for improvement but to be able to acknowledge our growth is amazing & fulfilling! I love that each staff member will go that extra mile for the customer in their own way, whether they need assistance around the store, help with ordering an item or just to ask whether we have a toilet, aha the team is always on hand for our customers! Customers love our energy instore and love to banter and keep the energy light and uplifted for both the team and the customer. A happy team brings even happier customers I’m excited to continue watching the store, the team GROW.

I am super proud of my store, and more importantly my team, because of the complete transformation we have had over one of the most challenging times for retail as an industry. I joined the store in October ‘20 and began setting out a framework for achieving every day and making each day count.

I am so grateful for all the hard work everybody has put in to make sure we are constantly striving to hit targets and staying on top, no matter what’s thrown at us.

Through lockdown after lockdown, everyone has stayed so proud of our store and it shows from selling the most markdown stock on the first day of reopening to our new footwear department.

We are on an upwards positive trajectory and I couldn’t be more proud of not only the work that is going on within store, but also how we are getting involved with the company, pride campaigns and community projects.

I am Proud of my amazing team because they have worked this last year to deal with everything that has happened with a smile on the faces and a positive outlook. They have managed every unusual day with a “we can do this” attitude, and have made sure our customers have always come first.

They are passionate about the books we sell and the favourite part of our days are talking to people about books. They arrive early to work all the time! They are eager to start and happy to support each other and they make every day a happy day for me as a manager. I am so proud of them

Over the last couple of years the retail industry has been very challenging especially fashion. I’m proud of my store because despite these challenges we are still here fighting to stay in the high street. We are a small store but we always put the customer first. We offer a personal shopping experience which we cater to each customer as each one is different. Nothing is too much trouble. We get regular feedback through our online feedback service which motivates the team to do their best.

​I am so proud of our family at Pets at Home Corstorphine!

Apart from dealing with the changes brought about by the virus our store has taken everything that has been thrown at us in our stride. We have had many ups and downs but stuck together through it all and had a sing and dance along the way.

We always put ourselves out there with incentive drives and shout about how well each other are doing and I am so proud that we always celebrate each other successes.

This vibe extends to our customers/clients and when they walk through our doors we make sure we make them and their pets part of out family too! We have our regulars who know all our names and we also manage to find new family members who have never owned a pet before.

We were bursting with pride and what we have accomplished that we entered into an internal store of the year competition and managed to secure a place with the top 1% of all stores throughout the company.

Massive thank you to the whole team and each of you individually for the role you play in our family! Big love for Pets at Home Corstorphine <3
