Jollyes reports record Christmas trading as it looks ahead to 100th store opening

Jollyes has reported record Christmas trading with a like-for-like sales increase of 13% in the five weeks to 31 December.

Total sales grew by 25% in the period as the pet retailer continued to invest in value and its services.

Jollyes delivered its strongest ever seven-day trading period in the final week before Christmas when it attracted almost 45% more customers than in the same week in the previous year. On a like-for-like basis, customer numbers were up by 26%.

In addition to the festive trading figures, the retailer has announced that it will be launching new stores in Belfast Connswater, Newport and Rotherham in February and March. The shop in Newport will be Jollyes’ 100th location when it opens on 1 March.

Since the beginning of 2022, Jollyes has doubled the size of its estate with the opening of 34 new stores.

It has also confirmed that the first deliveries from its new Wincanton distribution centre in Middlewich will take place next week.

Jollyes chief executive officer Joe Wykes said: “Christmas saw us continue to fly, delivering market-leading trading both in stores and online as we brought our special combination of expertise, service and value to UK pet parents.

“We’re looking forward to trading from 100 stores for the first time and continuing to invest in 2024 in building a platform for even more growth in the months ahead.”
