Jollyes is putting the finishing touches to its latest new store at Port Glasgow, Inverclyde, scheduled to open on Saturday February 25.
The store, Jollyes’ sixth in Scotland and 86th in the UK as a whole, will be officially opened by Inverclyde Provost Drew McKenzie, assisted by Princess the Scottish “unicorn” and Scotland’s national piper Louise Marshall.
The 5,000sq ft unit at Gallagher Shopping Park will employ 12 colleagues, led by store manager Andria Keelan, who joins Jollyes after 13 years at Argos.
The new store includes a full offer of frozen raw food and a community pet clinic offering vaccinations from £33 and microchipping for dogs, cats and rabbits starting at £13. The store will also offer a small selection of small animals.
Kerry Midgley, Jollyes regional manager, said: “We can’t wait to throw open our doors at Port Glasgow – we’re putting the finishing touches to a store that we know everyone in the town will be proud of – and what better way to do it than have Scotland’s national animal, a unicorn, to be there to celebrate the occasion.
“The store is in a brilliant location and we’ve designed it to make it as easy as possible for pet lovers in Lanarkshire to find what they are looking for from small animals, food and accessories to toys and treats.”
