Did you know WHSmith is now welcoming dogs inside stores across the UK? That’s right, you can enjoy dog friendly shopping together while picking out some great products.
WHSmith is a well-known retail chain in the United Kingdom, with a wide range of products including books, stationery, and gifts. What makes this place even more brilliant, is they’ve now changed their previous ‘no dog’ policy, making WHSmith dog friendly.
The decision to allow dogs in the high street stores is part of WHSmith’s broader strategy to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all customers. The company recognises that many people view their dogs as an important part of their family, and wants to make it easy for those customers to shop with their pets by their side.
We talked to WHSmith to get the full scoop and this was their response:
“We certainly recognise that many of our customers now own a dog as part of their family… To accommodate this, we have changed our previous ‘’no dog’ policy and we now endeavor to create a welcoming and safe environment for all our customers to shop in, whilst accompanied by their dog.”Customer Service WHSmith
To ensure the safety and comfort of both customers and their dogs, WHSmith has implemented a number of policies and procedures. For instance, there are certain areas of the store where dogs are not allowed, such as the food aisle. It’s also important to note that some stores may not be dog friendly due to the place in which they are placed, for example shopping centres, airports etc.
The decision to allow dogs in stores has been met with positive feedback from customers. Many appreciate the convenience and flexibility of being able to bring their pets with them while they shop. However, being dog friendly is not just about allowing them in the store, WHSmith also actively support dog welfare through their charitable initiatives and partnerships.
WHSmith’s decision to allow dogs in its stores is a reflection of the company’s commitment to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all customers. They, like many other evolving stores recognise the special bond between dogs and their owners.
