Irish pet retailer creates 30 jobs in the Northwest

Petmania Sligo opens today as expansion announced across the Northwest.

IRISH owned pet-retailer, Petmania is to create 30 new jobs this year with an expansion spanning three locations in the North West.

Petmania Sligo, the new pet super-store and grooming studio in Sligo town, officially opened its doors today. The Sligo store 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. Later this year Petmania will open two more branches with grooming studios in the Northwest.

The expansion of Ireland’s largest pet retail stores means at least 30 new positions created across the North West, bring the total number employed by the company to more than 200 jobs.

Petmania is currently recruiting for several positions at their stores across the country and head office in Kilkenny. Full details for these roles as well as positions in Petmania’s new Northwest stores and how to apply for them will be available on www.petmania.ie.
