Hiring Underway at Soon-to-Open Dove Valley Road Businesses

Construction is nearing completion on several businesses in the Canyon Crossroads shopping plaza on Dove Valley Road, home to the recently opened Fry’s Marketplace. And several of the businesses are hiring.

The Pet Wellness Center, a full-service veterinarian clinic, had a sign in the window last week saying it would open late August. Great Clips and Pinky’s Nails & Spa are both getting close to opening and are hiring.

Pet Planet, a family business with more than 50 stores in Canada and the United States, expects to open Thursday, Sept. 14, company spokesperson Kiley Nothman told In&Out. Pet Planet calls itself a “natural” pet grocer, selling pet food and products and offering grooming services. It is hiring part-time employees for the store, Nothman said.
