It feels like only yesterday that Antony and I started selling reptiles in our small pet shop in St. James, Northampton. Fast-forward 20 years and a lot has changed!
We’ve learnt a lot over that 20 years, both about the animals and running a business. But, I guess to have any business open for 2 decades, you must be doing something right!
I’d like to share with you some of my favourite photos from the past 20 years. You can see a real progression not only in the building but also in many of the team who are still with us today.
We’re still as enthusiastic about reptiles as we were back then, we love it when adults come into the shop and tell us about their memories of visiting as a child. It’s really great to feel that our Northampton Reptile Centre has made a lasting impression on people and that’s what we want to continue doing today.
I hope you enjoy looking through the photos below, if you have any memories about the early days of Northampton Reptile Centre, please let us know in the comment section at the bottom of this page.
