 Just look at that little face... No wonder then, that so many fishkeepers find these little puffers so hard to resist.

Record numbers turn out for opening of new store

Over 1,500 families and avid fishkeepers attended the official opening of a new store by Fishkeeper Scotland in Dobbies Garden Centre, Braehead at the bank holiday weekend.

The store, which is the second in Glasgow and eighth in Scotland, opened to a queue of over 100 families and fishkeepers, many who had queued from 7am, keen to get a first look at more than 5,000 fish and invertebrates in the shop’s sales tanks. 

Colin Christian, Fishkeeper Scotland Regional Director, says: "Our launch weekend broke all visitor records since the company first started out. People turned up in their droves from all over Glasgow to check out the new store and the feedback already has been fantastic.

"There was a real buzz in the store all weekend with not only fishkeepers taking advantage of the opening weekend offers but families too who seemed to really enjoy the extra activities we put on to celebrate the launch, including face painting and various competitions to win aquariums.

"The team has definitely got off to a great start and I’m sure it will continue to be a huge success."

Fishkeeper Scotland currently holds the winner and runner-up positions for Scotland in Practical Fishkeeping’s Retailer of the Year awards. The company is an independently operated arm of Maidenhead Aquatics, which was set up in 1984 and has 140 stores in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and over 700 employees.
