Welcome to Gimborn


In Germany, Gimborn is represented in two locations that are considered state of the art in their specific fields thanks to consistently high levels of investment.

Gimborn started its operations in 2000 with a pet shop in Prague called PetCenter. The company grew extremely quickly between 2006 and 2010. The pet shop chain was successfully sold in 2011. At this point, there were already more than 160 branches in central and eastern European countries.
