R&R Country, a local horse and country store based in Hemingbrough, is set to unveil its latest retail business this holiday weekend, with the launch of a new pet store.
On May 1 at 10 a.m., the doors will open and all customers will be greeted with a 10% discount on all dog products, with the promotion set to last the entire bank holiday weekend.
Items that will be sold include dog beds, treats, coats and other accessories.
The pet store will be housed in an old building, formerly Stone’s fish and chips restaurant, which “has taken on a whole new look ready for the grand opening.”
Looking ahead, R&R Country has said it hopes to open an in-house dog grooming salon in the near future as well.
To celebrate the launch, the company will be holding a raffle over the weekend to win a dog basket filled with canine “goodies”. Entries will cost just Â£ 1 and all money raised will be donated to the Jerry Green Dog Rescue charity.
Tina Addy, store manager at the Hemingbrough branch, said it was important to support local charities after “last year’s hardships”.
She said: “We can’t wait to open the store this Saturday and hopefully raise a lot of money for the fantastic charity, Jerry Green.”
