VIDEO: Reptile shop opening in Horsham town centre

Waiting for Video...
 

A reptile shop is the latest business to open in Horsham selling a range of lizards and snakes and offering specialist advice to pet owners.

Luke Russell-Smith, 22, has run Alpha Exotics online for two years after completing a course in animal management.

Now he has opened his first shop in Park Place, Horsham.

Luke said: “There are not any reptile shops nearby. The closest is Brighton or East Grinstead and we are slap bang in the middle.

“(Opening my own shop) hasn’t sunk in yet. I can’t quite believe it.”

As well as giving advice for people caring for and buying reptile pets, Alpha Exotics is offering a boarding service for when owners go on holiday and the opportunity for customers to get their animal sexed.

The shop also sells tanks, accessories and food.

He is hosting a grand opening at the weekend with a free entry to a prize draw for every purchase.

The shop is running the event on Saturday between 10am and 5pm and Sunday between 10am and 4pm.
