Jollyes posts strongest ever first half performance

Jollyes has delivered its strongest ever first half trading performance in the six months to 27 November.

During the period, the pet retailer’s like-for-like sales climbed by 19% while total sales increased by 31% to £70 million.

Jollyes opened eight new stores in the half year in Swindon, Belfast, Merthyr Tydfil, Harrogate, Widnes, Swadlincote, Reading and Hull. It is now looking ahead to the launch its 99th UK store in early March and its 100th later in the month.

The retailer has recently concluded a contract with United Petfood to help build its growing private label business which already accounts for over half its dog food sales. The new deal to supply Jollyes Lifestage brand of food and treats will see United create 36 new jobs at three production facilities.

Jollyes chief executive Joe Wykes said:  “There’s no doubt we’ve had a tremendous six months, delivering for customers, our people and our shareholders. And as always, behind the numbers sits the hard work of our 1,000-plus strong team as we transform this business with real pace – they continue to inspire me every day.

“But we also all know past performance is no guarantee future success. That’s why we’re determined to guard against complacency, investing in new partnerships that will help strengthen our momentum in the months and years ahead.”
