About Petmart

About Us

Petmart Richmond & Nelson are locally owned “pet specialists” and have the biggest range of Premium Quality Pet Supplies for your cats and dogs, fish, birds, rabbits and guinea pigs.

We can’t list all our ranges on here, so if you don’t see it, we may still have it, or would be happy to try and get it for you. 

Petmart's owner Graeme Lewis and team have a wealth of knowledge about everything your pet needs and they all pride themselves on being able to give helpful advice and friendly service.

Petmart was originally established as Riverlea Animal Care in 1992 in a small shop in Appleby just outside Nelson. Petmart now has two branches, located at 332 Queen Street, Richmond, Nelson, and 74 Pascoe Street, Annesbrook, Nelson. We are the largest retailer of pet accessories in the Nelson Marlborough region.

Petmart changed ownership in Oct 2020 and has undergone a refresh in the store layout, but still retains our local atmosphere.

Local staff supporting local.

Petmart is a member of Indepet. Indepet members are all Independently owned pet stores like ourselves but we can come together to talk to our suppliers about better products and pricing and being able to offer regular deals and everyday low pricing for our customers. Being part of a group means a locally owned store can be more than competitive and still provide the best in local knowledge and service.

Graeme has over 35 years experience in retail management and over 20 years working in the Pet Industry.
