I'm all for pet shops in garden centres but noter that this is the group including Wyevale and I have been ejected from the Wyevale Harrow for taking in my small dog (who was being carried)fortunately before I could make the very large purchase I had intended... The best pet stores are pet accessible so could the garden centre group please clarify it's current stance on this matter.
