Cat World Feline Superstore, one of Oswestry’s many independent shops, celebrates its 4th birthday on May 11th!

Owned by husband and wife team, Graham and Di, the business has been trading for over 12 years, firstly online which is still active ( alongside having a stall at cat shows up and down the country.

Di says: “In 2018, we decided to test the water of having a physical shop, and the ideal way to do that, at relatively low risk, was by renting a space in the indoor market.

“This proved to be a success so when we saw that they were renovating the old Bakers Oven building, we saw an opportunity to have our own shop and here we are! We are next door to the Market Town Vet, in the alleyway next to Boots.

“With hindsight, we probably didn’t pick the best time to open a new shop. After a few months, the whole country was pretty much brought to a standstill with COVID and lockdowns.

“We made it through that only for everyone to feel the impact of the cost of living crisis which has been more challenging than the pandemic ever was.

“But we are still here! We have lots of lovely regular local customers and also visitors to the town pop in. We have even had people from places such as Stoke, Preston and Cardiff who have come especially to Oswestry to visit our shop as they’ve seen us on Google or Trip Advisor.

“Paws crossed that we are still here in another 4 years!”
