Animal Zone choose Easton Group for launch

Pet health experts, The Animal Zone, have teamed up with Easton Property to launch a new retail concept providing a range of natural and raw pet foods, pet supplements, and healthy pet treats to pet-owners.

The Animal Zone, founded by Shirley Aitken, is on a mission to ensure that the health and well-being of our furry friends comes first, and the business has leased 2,000 square feet of newly refurbished retail space from Easton Group to ensure it achieves its goal. The property is well located within the pedestrianised area of Dockhead Street in Saltcoats town centre. Saltcoats is located on the Ayrshire coast, and is a popular seaside town that regularly attracts tourists, visitors, and day-trippers from across the region.

The building is owned by Easton Property who made a significant investment to substantially refurbish the building including re-roofing the property. Easton Property is a division of the Easton Group – a family-owned property and investment business with a portfolio located throughout Scotland. Easton Group was established in 1974 and has almost 50 years’ experience investing in communities.

“It is brilliant to see The Animal Zone occupying such a prominent space in Saltcoats town centre, and providing a valuable service to pet owners.

As a landlord we take the view that we must invest in our shops if we are to create thriving high streets, and we must allow new businesses to start-up and trade by giving them opportunities. The investment we made refurbishing this unit is now delivering dividends for all stakeholders, and most importantly to the local residents, visitors, and shoppers.

This letting is great for Dockhead Street, and will give Saltcoats town centre a huge boost. We wish Shirley Aitken and everyone at The Animal Zone a great future at their new premises.”
