A NEW pet store has opened its doors in Clevedon with the aim of selling low-cost supplies for animal lovers.

The Pet Store and Bargain Goods shop has been set up by 60-year-old Carol Kite in Old Street.

Mrs Kite, who lives in Clevedon with her husband Robert who she married last March, decided to open the shop after being made redundant by a housing organisation she had previously worked for for 15 years.

She said: “I didn’t know what to do with my life, whether to go for another job or not.

“We breed birds and also have dogs and fish. I got so involved with all our pets I thought I would try to branch out on my own.

“We want a chance to show people they can look after their pets without it costing lots of money.

“It is for people who cannot afford maybe to buy pre-packed, more costly food too.”
