Lincoln Pets at Home set for £ 271k revamp

Store refurb: A large transformation project will see a popular pet store add a vets, grooming parlour and new jobs.

The Lincoln branch of the UK’s largest pet chain is undergoing major a store revamp, creating new jobs in the process.

Pets at Home in the Tritton Retail Centre is spending £271,000 on the refit, plus creating 12 new jobs.

The shop will also add a Vets4Pets veterinary surgery and a Groom Room at the back of the store.

The Vets4Pets surgery will have a full operating theatre, digital X-ray facilities, in-house laboratory and a hospital ward providing a range of treatments.

The Groom Room offers services such as full grooming, bath and blow dry, puppy grooming and nail clipping.

Store manager, Vicki Coombs, said: “We’ve listened carefully to what our customers have been telling us and we’re confident the store’s new layout will be just what they want.

“Our mission is to ensure pets live a happy and healthy life and the addition of a grooming salon and vet surgery means our customers will now find everything they need to care for their pets under one roof.”

A party weekend will take place at the store on March 1 and 2 to celebrate the launch of the new facilities.
