Signs that make me laugh: “Bakewell Auto Parts & Pet Supplies”

My wife and I spotted this sign while on vacation in the Peak District.

Doesn’t this strike you as a bit of an odd combination?  Auto parts and pet supplies?   Who buys their cat food and oil filters from the same guy?

I would have thought that the lovely town of Bakewell, Derbyshire was big enough to have separate auto parts and pet supplies stores.

    Maybe sometimes it’s just cheaper to fix your dog with auto parts?

    I never thought of that! Or maybe certain pet supplies can be used to fix your car when real auto parts are too pricey?
