Quickstore Plymouth customer K9 Magic Meals grows their business with increased self storage

k9-magic-mealsQuickstore Plymouth customers Michelle and Adrian are the owners of K9 Magic Meals. After a very successful year in 2016 they’ve had to invest in a new, larger van and they’ve also increased the size of their storage unit with us.

The company supplies Simpsons Premium Dog Food and they’ve been going from strength to strength taking online orders and delivering 7 days a week too. Michelle recently said: “My business wouldn’t run nearly as smoothly if it wasn’t for Quickstore Plymouth. I don’t know how I’d manage without them.”

Quickstore Plymouth would like to wish K9 Magic Meals a successful 2017 and thank them for their continued custom.

You can find K9 Magic Meals on Twitter and on Facebook or learn more about them from their website.
