MONEY; Thanks for the New Jobs, Fido


The Scots' love for animals has created a jobs boost.

Six new Pet City superstores are being planned, it was revealed yesterday.

US parent company, Petsmart, said they wanted to double the number of their Scottish outlets within the next year.

And Petsmart, who forecast 200 new jobs, are planning to introduce a new range of upmarket in-store services so pets can be totally spoiled.

The Scottish outlets will soon have grooming parlour "beauty salons", along with specialist pet photographic studios and veterinary clinics.

Pet City boast they are supermarkets for pet lovers.

As well as selling animals - from fluffy rabbits and guinea pigs to snakes and tarantula spiders - the stores claim they stock everything an owner could possibly want for their pet.

The expansion will see new stores in Stirling and Kirkcaldy open within the next two months.

Others will follow at Glasgow's Parkhead Forge, Dumfries, Aberdeen and Inverness.

That will see staff numbers grow from 190 at present to around 400.

The company already have two Edinburgh stores, at Corstorphine and Kinnaird Park, plus outlets at Renfrew, East Kilbride, Drumchapel in Glasgow and Perth.

Pet City will also spend around pounds 1million marketing the Scottish stores to increase their share of the pounds 3.4 billion UK pet food and accessories market.

A spokesman for Petsmart said: "Scots are splashing out more and more on their pets.

"This investment will allow us to meet the recent surge of demand.

"Seemingly, it's a dog's life for Scottish pets these days."
