PetPlace opens new HQ amid sales rise

The retailer, which has stores in Abergele, Ruthin, Mold, Llangefni and Chirk, has opened the new site in Tir Llwyd Enterprise Park in Kinmel Bay

PetPlace has announced it has opened new headquarters following a rise in sales over the pandemic.

The retailer, which has stores in Abergele, Ruthin, Mold, Llangefni and Chirk, has opened the new site in Tir Llwyd Enterprise Park in Kinmel Bay.

The company will be based out of a 10,000 sq ft office and warehouse facility.

Managing director Sion Pritchard said: “As a company we have grown and grown over the past few years, and that growth has accelerated since the onset of the pandemic.

“We quickly adapted to the challenges, transforming our stores into Covid-safe environments – installing Record FlowControl, a revolutionary automated system – introducing other safety measures and ramping-up the click and collect service to meet a 600% rise in demand.”

He added: “The new loyalty app has also been a major success and as a result of this cumulative impact we decided the time was right for us to find a new headquarters and move to the next level.

“Tir Llwyd in Kinmel Bay is the perfect place for us; central and easily accessible, we are delighted to join the community of long-established and successful organisations already based here. It is also less than a stone’s throw from the distribution hub that handles PetPlace’s online orders, so it’s a win-win situation for us.”

Director Fraser Crewe said: “We are delighted to have worked in partnership with PetPlace to secure this move. The site is easily accessible from the A55 and meets their distribution requirements while also giving them a central North Wales base. We congratulate them on all their recent success and wish them the best of luck for the future.”
