A FORDINGBRIDGE business has expanded and is looking forward to the future.

Pampered Dogs Grooming Salon and Fordingbridge Pet Supplies Limited has moved to a larger premises in Salisbury Street

- ten times the size of its previous shop, which was also located along that street.

The business was started in 2014 by Sam Legg, who has been a dog groomer for 14 years, and her husband Matt, who was a corporate manager for Vodafone.

The couple's new store is now spread over two floors.

"We are extremely proud of what we have achieved. We've put every ounce of our hearts into our business and are very much looking forward to our busy future," said Sam.

"Our little shop in Fordingbridge was where it all started. We crammed as much as we possibly could in and have now expanded to premises ten times the size of what we were in.

"Expanding over two floors. The dog grooming and hydrobathing is now done in a big spacious 80m2 salon. The shop floor has been kitted out with eight freezers selling raw foods for all budgets."

Matt said the larger premises has made such a difference to business meaning they can spread out products on the shop floor and order in more products in giving customers a greater choice.

He said: "Since we have moved here we have doubled our footfall. We are certainly busy, which is really good."

In addition to its grooming services, Pampered Dogs Grooming Salon and Fordingbridge Pet Supplies Limited also stock a range of natural and raw foods. The store is also able to offer a free delivery service which means the business is able to serve customers in surrounding towns and villages.
