Pets At Home enjoys pandemic boost to sales

Pets At Home, which has 350 outlets across the UK, raised its profit forecast today as the pandemic boosted pet ownership in the country.

The company today said full-year profits will be £85m, up from a previous estimate of £77m.

Nicholas Hyett, analyst at stockbrokers Hargreaves Lansdown, said: “Pets at Home has added 10% to January’s full year profit guidance.

“The rapid improvement is evidence of just how strong recent trading has been, and the effect rolling lockdowns are having – both on pet ownership and our willingness to splash out on our furry friends.

“There is always a risk of course that newly acquired pets fall out of favour once lockdown comes to an end, but for now pet retail is in the jaws of a boom.”
