A new pet store is set to launch in Fife with a unique claim to fame - it’ll be the first pet store in the UK to be opened by a unicorn.

Jollyes opens its doors at Saltire Retail Park in Glenrothes on Saturday, October 8, at 10.00am.

A fun-packed line-up of events is planned for the day, including what is believed to be the first pet store opening by a unicorn, the national animal of Scotland.

Princess, one of their famous unicorns - who masquerades as an adorable miniature Shetland pony – will carry out the official opening.

Kerry Midgley, Jollyes regional manager, said: “We’re looking forward to opening a store that everyone in Glenrothes can be proud of - and what better way to do it than have Scotland’s national animal, a unicorn, to be there to celebrate the occasion.

“The store is in a great location and we’ve designed it to make it as easy as possible for pet lovers in Glenrothes and the surrounding area to find what they are looking for from small animals, food and accessories to toys and treats.”

It will be the fourth Jollyes store to open in Scotland, with a fifth to follow at Hermiston Gait Retail Park, in Edinburgh.
