Family-owned retailer Trusty is opening a pet supplies superstore in Derby at the end of this month.
The new site is six times bigger than the Trusty Mickleover shop, which will remain open.
The 7,500 sq ft store, on the Kingsway Industrial Estate, will be home to more than 30 display freezers and two huge walk-in freezers for raw food products. Trusty currently supplies 19 brands of raw food, with more set to be added.
The retailer has loyalty cards for Trusty Pet Supplies spends as well as for specific brands such as Burns, Edmondson’s Dog Food, Natures Menu and Acana. Customers gain a Trusty Stamp for each £25 spent in store, earning £10 off when they reach 10 stamps. The loyalty card schemes can also be used to redeem free bags of pet food.
“The launch of the new store is not just an exciting event for the Trusty Pet Supplies brand, and our loyal customers, but for the community, too,” a spokesman said. “A new store means new job opportunities – we are hiring a superstore manager, multiple shop assistants/product advisors (full-time and part-time availability) and will soon be looking to hire Saturday/weekend assistants, too.”
The original Trusty Pet Supplies store in Mickleover will remain open seven days a week, with an online shop open 24/7 for nationwide delivery.
