Jolly-es Days are coming


Owners plan to protect pets from the cost-of-living crisis this Christmas
‘Pets come first’ says Britain as pets set for purr-fect presents and paw-some treats
Brits may be planning to cut back on Christmas spending this year, but pets will be spared from the impact of the cost-of-living crisis according to a survey released today by Jollyes The Pet People.

Almost 70 per cent of pet owners will put a present under the tree for their furry friend this Christmas while 60 per cent are planning to make their pet a special festive feed. 

Only one in ten (11 per cent) of people planned to spend more on their friends and families this Christmas and almost half (43 per cent) to spend less, the Cison/Maru survey of 1,000 people across the UK showed.

But according to Jollyes which has over 80 stores across the UK, pet spend is being prioritised – with three-quarters of the population (75 per cent) planning to spend the same or more on their pets this Christmas.
And almost as many men (65 per cent) plan to buy a present for their pet as women (71 per cent).
The nationwide statistics mask important regional variations. 

When it comes to a meal with all the trimmings, it’s anything but grim up north with over two-thirds of owners in the North West (69 per cent) planning to make a special Christmas dinner for their pets, just ahead of the West Midlands (67 per cent) and London  (68 per cent). 

And while fewer planned the same in the East Midlands, Scotland and the South East, more than half of owners in each of these regions were still planning a special ‘dog’s dinner’ this Christmas.

Meanwhile, dogs will be looking their best on Christmas morning as over a third of owners are planning to treat their pooches to a grooming session. In the North East 63 per cent of dog owners plan to groom their pets for 25 December while more than half in the North West say they will do the same.

Jollyes head of marketing, Phil Turner-Naylor said: “The survey confirms what everyone at Jollyes already knows – pets come first. It wouldn’t be Christmas in the UK without the pets we love.

“Our survey shows pet owners are bending over backwards to make sure their pets are pampered this Christmas.”

Jollyes has made its stores into a one-stop shop for a pet-tastic Christmas this year and knowing that owners want to spoil their animals it has doubled down on its promise to be Britain’s best value pet retailer this festive season.

And as the market leader in Northern Ireland, to highlight its Christmas ranges, this coming Sunday it plans to send its ‘Jollyes Days Are Coming” truck to Stormont in Northern Ireland so dog walkers in the grounds can see what’s on offer in store.
