Irish-owned pet retailer Petmania is creating 20 new jobs in the Northwest.
The new recruitment drive comes as the Irish-owned pet store announces today, that two new stores will open later in 2021 located at Centre Point Retail Park in Roscommon Town and Westpoint Shopping Centre in Westport.
The news today follows Petmania Sligo, whose doors opened in June, the latest pet super-store and grooming studio in the Petmania chain.
The expansion in the Northwest is part of a major three-year expansion program that saw the pet retailer launch an online store and upgrade three of its retail outlets in 2020.
The expansion of Ireland’s largest pet retail stores means at least 20 new positions will be created across the Northwest, bringing the total number employed by the company to more than 200 people.
