Claws’n’Paws opens new store in Knox

A career in the corporate retail environment was a warm-up for life as a multi-store business owner for Robert Thompson.

Starting from scratch eight years ago, Robert opened a specialty pet store called Claws’n’Paws, which caters for the needs of most pets with a unique product range, low prices and excellent service.

A new store in Wantirna South on the corner of High Street Road and Burwood Highway (next to Banksia Nursery) complements its existing store in Kilsyth.

Robert’s journey has produced numerous state and national awards so he knows the Claws’n’Paws difference is part of a winning formula.

“Our stores employ seven staff who are pet experts and love animals. We are open every day and are constantly innovating,” said Robert.

“Customers and Senior’s Card holders can register for discounts and specials. We do on the spot $10 nail clips along with free six-point health checks. Coming soon will be our $5 DIY dog wash service.”

To enhance his skills in running a successful small business, Robert has attended many Knox business events and courses such as bookkeeping, marketing, social media and business breakfasts.
