Jollyes is putting the finishing touches to its first store in south Wales as it prepares to open in Llanelli just in time for Christmas.
The nationwide pet retailer will open its doors at Parc Pemberton Retail Park, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, at 10 am on Saturday, December 10.
The official opening ceremony will be performed by the chair and consort of Carmarthenshire County Council, councillor Rob and Mrs Nysia Evans.
The 5,500 sq ft store will employ 10 staff and will offer customers a wide range of pet products, from food and treats to toys and accessories.
It will host a community pet clinic and one of the first raw frozen food ‘shop-in-shops’.
Jollyes already has two stores in north Wales, at Wrexham, which opened earlier this year, and Flint, but the new Llanelli store is its first in south Wales, with more to follow.
The company is in negotiations to open two more South Wales stores in the new year and will announce more details once locations and timings are confirmed.
Jollyes’ regional manager Matt Godwin said: “We’ve been looking for the right location for our first store in south Wales for some time and couldn’t be happier to be in Llanelli at Parc Pemberton. We’re actively looking at other locations in south Wales and will give more details in the new year.”
