Pets At Home has invested £200,000 in a makeover project at its Lynn store which will see the opening a new facility and creation of more jobs.

The refurbished store on Campbells Meadow Retail Park, will be officially opened on Friday, February 26, by West Norfolk Mayor Colin Manning.

Included in the project is a new Groom Room which has resulted in the creation of four new grooming positions, bringing the total number of people employed at the store to more than 15 in both full and part-time roles.

The Groom Room will offer a wide range of services including full grooming, bath and blow dry, puppy grooming and nail clipping, which are all important to a pet’s health and wellbeing.

Store manager, Nev Wakefield, said: “We’ve listened carefully to what our customers have been telling us and we’re confident the store’s improved layout and new Groom Room will be just what they want. Our mission is to ensure pets live a happy and healthy life, and by investing in our store and services we hope to achieve this.”

The company, founded in 1991, has more than 400 sites across the UK employing more than 6,000 people and was a winner in The Sunday Times Top 25 Best Big Companies to Work For 2013.
