The concept of Robbo's Pet Barn was born between two brothers during 1995. Kevin Robinson, a successful horse trainer in the South Coast region of Berry, NSW shared ideas of a new age pet supplier with his brother Peter Robinson, a car wholesaler for 29 years in Canberra. Peter was looking for something unique, and still challenging. Kevin understood that pet owners were looking for a supplier that could offer a range of products with the right service and advice. Peter understood the need for convenience, range, and the best possible price. Hence the idea of pet supplies taken into the 21st Century of shopping where the shopper can go to one superstore and know that the widest range is supplied under the best buying power.
March 15, 1996 Robbo's Pet Barn opened in an unused Freight Centre at the Kingston rail yard. With lots of love and hard work a new world for pet owners was created. "Robbo's" busts with an enormous range of fresh and dry pet foods along with accessories to suit all types of pets, but best of all, offers this in a drive-thru manner.
It didn't take long for the word to spread. Within four years the Canberra store boomed with feedback on the concept overwhelming. This led to Peter taking the idea to Victoria.
May 1, 2000 Robbo's Pet Barn opened in Dandenong South, Victoria. There with an expert team assisting, more and more pet owners were impressed by the range, price and convenience that the store offered.
The tradition of great service and low prices continues to this day at Robbo's Pet Barn, so why not come into to Robbo's and experience this for yourself.
