Pet care specialist Petbarn has acquired all three Pets At Home stores in Australia and converted them to the Petbarn banner. The franchised units in Victoria are understood to have been converted in the past couple of months following the deal, which took place in February.

Petbarn is one of Australia’s leading pet care specialists, trading through 45 stores. A Pets at Home spokesman said the Australian business was disposed of in order to focus on growing the business in the UK under its new owner, KKR.
