Why is Pets at Home litter so much more expensive than Tesco?

And Aldi?

It's about 1.70 in both Tesco and Aldi and about £4 for even the cheapest in Pets at Home.

Don't know but isn't most stuff more expensive at Pets At Home?!

I have a cat who will only use Catsan which costs a fortune! I tried him on a cheaper one but he wouldn't use it and you could tell he was desperate to go as he was pacing around.

I don't know where he gets his expensive tastes from...

I used to love the Pets at Home fine clumping litter.. slightly pinkish grey, clumped brilliantly and didn't scatter too much. Then they stopped doing it and their stuff now is grey and lumpy sad

I didn't mind paying for it when it was good, but have given up and gone back to rubbish Morrisons cheapo stuff sad Grey and it spreads everywhere!

Pink you can get Catsan for less than PS3 for a 5l bag at Wilko smile

Oooh, we're getting a Wilko later this month Bunny, I'll check it out!

Catsan is £4.49 for 10L at zooplus

I get all my litter & biscuits & most of my catfood at zooplus. If you go via quidco there's a small amount of cashback, & often an extra discount too, (esp if you spend over £75 which it's surprisingly easy to do as long as you have plenty of storage space) & it is nice not to have to lug bags/boxes of heavy stuff about.

Also zooplus do their own 5% discount with a subscription deal (it's ages since I last did it but was about £5 for 3 years iirc) & points with every purchase for various freebies from their rewards programme. Delivery is free, & they use DPD who always send you a text with a one-hour delivery window (which can be changed). If you order on a Mon or Tue it'll usually turn up the same week.

I love it, can you tell grin

Thanks guys.
Pets at Home is actually cheaper than Tesco for wet food pouches, according to my calculations. Haven't checked out Lidl/B&M yet tho.

Completely second zoo plus for pet stuff, brilliant.

That's only a small bag of catsAn so not particularly cheap...... Esp if you have to add postage on top? Sainsburies do 20L for £9.50?

BunnyofDoom mentioned 5L for under £3 at Wilkos - 10L for £4.49 is somewhat cheaper. Delivery from zooplus is free over £29 (easily reached with a bit of wet & dry food on top), & they do the bigger bags too which work out slightly cheaper.

personally I'd rather have big heavy bags of stuff like cat litter delivered to my door than have to lug it in & out of trolleys & boots grin
