This week a brand new Jollyes sign has gone up over the entrance and the store – at Snowhill Retail Park – has been given a new look and internal layout in time for re-opening.
The makeover will aim to “make the shopping experience even more convenient for customers in the area and their pets, with more room to shop”.
The existing Jollyes store at Beck Retail Park, Ings Road, Wakefield, remains open as usual. Jollyes bought The Pet Store and its three Yorkshire stores in October, bringing together two the businesses.
The Pet Store outlets are at Wakefield, Barnsley and Denby Dale and the Wakefield store is the first of the three to get a makeover and a new look as Jollyes.
All the colleagues who worked at The Pet Store have been retained and Jollyes has hired three additional members of the team.
Sarah Farrar, Jollyes regional manager, said: “The Pet Store has been a great addition to the Jollyes’ family, and we’re delighted to repay loyal customers, starting with this investment at Wakefield Snowhill. The new look and new layout will make shopping at the store even easier.
“While we might look a little different, we’re all about the people here at Jollyes – and customers will find the same team, with the same pet expertise at the Wakefield Snowhill store. We’re looking forward to revamping the Barnsley and Denby Dale stores in the coming months.”
