A Pets at Home store is set to open in Morpeth next month, bringing 21 jobs.
The store, which will sell thousands of pet products, will also include a Vets4Pets practice, owned by Frances Gray and complete with a fully-equipped surgery. There will also be a Groom Room and a pet adoption centre run by independent charity Support Adoption For Pets.
All staff receive training in pet care, endorsed by City and Guilds, and manager Neil Brooks has 16 years’ experience with the business, previously working in Sunderland.
The store is due to open on Friday, August 12.
