The chairman of North West Leicestershire Council, Coun Virge Richichi, has attended the grand opening of Pets at Home in Coalville.

Coun Richichi officially opened the new store, before taking part in a guided tour of the new facilities, including the new Groom Room pet salon.

Lee Larkin, store manager, said: “What a fantastic start! Our opening weekend went even better than we had hoped and it was great to welcome the Chairman of North West Leicestershire Council and show him the new amenities that we have on offer at the store.

“Our new store features thousands of dedicated pet products for not only dogs and cats but small animals, fish and local wildlife too. We have also created seven jobs for the community across a range of full time and part time positions.”

All colleagues at the new store receive extensive training on pet care and pet knowledge which is endorsed by City & Guilds, providing a stamp of approval that demonstrates the value of its training. Colleagues at the Coalville store are dedicated to providing the highest levels of pet care, and are trained to offer great pet care tips and product knowledge.

Pets at Home in Coalville is home to an Adoption Centre, run by independent charity, Support Adoption For Pets, where pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and other small animals are cared for until a new loving home can be found. The 7,000 sq ft store also features an aquatics centre.

The new store at Whitwick Retail Park includes a Groom Room which provides a wide range of grooming options, including microchipping, nail clipping, hair trims or a full bath and blow dry. All Groom Room Colleagues receive 1,400 hours of training and all salons – including Coalville – are independently awarded a Grooming Gold Standard by SAI Global.

Coun Richichi added: “We are pleased to welcome a new business to Coalville, which will contribute to the existing retail park and bring new shopping options and new jobs to the town.”
