Ripley Town Centre recently welcomed Ipswich-based natural pet food store Pet Mince Direct to its team of retailers — offering a-fur-dable tasty treats, mince and nutritional products for the region’s four-legged friends.
Locally owned and operated, Pet Mince Direct takes a natural approach to its 100 per cent raw dog food, working with certified canine nutritionists and industry-leading professionals to ensure its meals are preservative-free, balanced and healthful.
Pet Mince Direct sources its human-grade ingredients, including fresh meat and vegetables, from Queensland farms, supporting local businesses while promising the very best in quality and taste for your best mate.
After opening their first pet-friendly stores in Brassall and Plainland in 2020 and 2019, the team was drawn to a new store opportunity at Ripley Town Centre to grow the local brand.
Pet Mince Direct Certified Canine Nutritionist and Store Manager, Adrian Eyre, said Ripley Town Centre had the perfect demographic for the store and knew locals would love what they had to offer.
“Ripley Town Centre had a fantastic vibe when we first visited and we felt an immediate sense of the family friendly, relaxed lifestyle. The area is also growing at such a rapid rate and there is no shortage of dogs in the community, so it presented an ideal opportunity for the owners to expand the business,” he said.
“The local response so far has been fantastic. We stock more than 135 fresh products, and customers are loving the wide range we have on offer.”
Pet Mince Direct ensures people can comfortably feed their large-breed dogs without cutting corners on nutrition or taste. Its best-selling Balance line is showing owners the benefits of raw feeding at an affordable price.
Ripley Town Centre, Centre Manager Andrew Quinert said he was pleased to welcome Pet Mince Direct to the Centre’s diverse retail mix.
“Being an animal lover myself and with sustainability a key driver at Ripley Town Centre, we’re thrilled to support yet another family owned, Ipswich born and bred business that has an emphasis on putting pets’ health first,” he said.
“It’s exciting to have Pet Mince Direct on board, and I know locals are going to love feeding their fury friends a product that is natural, healthy and ethical.”
In addition to top-quality mince, Pet Mince Direct also stocks a range of other locally made treats for both cats and dogs, including L’Barkery drinks and smoothies, Huds & Toke baked goods and Loyalty Pet Treats.
Pet Mince Direct is located near Ripley Veterinary Hospital at Ripley Town Centre and offers delivery on a select number of its products. For more information, visit the Pet Mince Direct website.
