The shop at Deerpark Retail park is in addition to Maxi Zoo’s Tralee store, and is expected to be staffed by 11 people.

A weekend of celebrations is planned at the new Killarney store from Friday May 24. On Saturday and Sunday, May 25 and 26, families and their four-legged friends can expect a variety of in-store activities, including face painting, balloon modellers, a live in-store DJ, giveaways and goodies, plus 20% off everything across the weekend exclusive to the Killarney store.

The red carpet will be rolled out for a ‘Pupparazi and Cat Walk,’ where shoppers can parade their pets and take some photos.

"Maxi Zoo has seen fantastic growth across the country in the last number of years, we now have over 30 stores nationwide with more expansion plans in the coming months. As a proud Kerry man, I’m especially thrilled to see a second store open in the county. Killarney is a thriving business hub and I’ve no doubt that our offering there will be appealing to pet owners and their furry friends,” said Anthony Cremin, Head of Marketing at Maxi Zoo Ireland.

Since its inception in Ballincollig, County Cork in 2006, Maxi Zoo has evolved into Ireland's largest specialty pet retailer, boasting a diverse range of over 8,000 products for pet owners. With an existing presence in 15 counties, the upcoming opening of the Kerry store is a testament to Maxi Zoo's unwavering commitment to meeting the needs of pet lovers throughout Ireland.

The newly opened store in Killarney will see 11 dedicated staff members added to Maxi Zoo's workforce, contributing to the company's overall employment of over 350 staff in Ireland.

Maxi Zoo has been actively engaged in supporting various animal charities across Ireland since its establishment, raising hundreds of thousands of euros through numerous campaigns.

Flemings Taxi’s Killarney brought the group back to Ross Castle, Killarney upon completion of the event.
