Opening of new Jollyes pet superstore in Gosport is the purrfect chance to meet manager Charlie
Manager Charlie Carter got to know a big St Bernard called Beethoven when she did her dog grooming training in the new Gosport Jollyes pet store’s pamper and groom salon, The Spa.
He was her first client and Charlie says: ‘It was an interesting way to start my grooming career – by the end I was totally soaked! The whole day was a great way for the team to get hands-on for the first time and it means we can’t wait for the store to open on April 18.’
Charlie and her team will be on hand to oﬀer friendly and expert advice on everything your pet needs, making sure this landmark store oﬀers furry, scaly and feathered friends and their owners the perfect in-store experience.
‘Combining my love of animals with my job is a real dream come true,’ says Charlie.
‘I’m sure my dog Marley is really excited about everything I’m learning! I’m hugely excited to be given the chance to manage the frst Jollyes store featuring an in-store veterinary practice and the only store in the south with the pamper and groom salon, The Spa.’
Charlie continues: ‘It is a fantastic opportunity to learn and grow with a brand as passionate about pets as Jollyes and serve our local community. That is what is so unique and exciting about our in-store vet; by being open alongside trading hours, it means this vital service for pet owners fits around people’s working lives.
‘We also are hugely proud of connection with the Stubbington Ark, our local RSPCA centre. Having already presented donations, we are delighted that representatives of the charity will be present at the grand opening.’
As well as being the first Jollyes store to have an in-house vet, Gosport also provides the only pamper and groom facility in the local area, The Spa. This is the ideal place for your pooch to get preened to perfection, with its range of packages ensuring every pet’s style and owner’s budget is covered.
Charlie explains: ‘Jollyes Gosport oﬀers everything pets and their owners need under one, pet-friendly roof, and this includes the vets and The Spa. Although our team for this amazing facility are all experienced experts, part of my training has involved learning how to groom.’
To celebrate the store’s opening, there’s a host of exciting events planned, from family activities to opening day oﬀers. These begin from April 18 onwards, so visit online or in-store to fnd out more about Jollyes Gosport – your new local pet superstore.
