Jun 16, 2015, 01:00 ET
SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Kriser's Natural Pet, a multi-unit retailer specializing in natural pet food, supplies and grooming, will host a grand opening at its seventh Southern California location on June 27-28, in Venice, at Lincoln and Rose, just south of Whole Foods. This marks the debut of the retailer on LA's Westside, coming off successful expansion around Southern California.
Kriser's brings pet parents in the vibrant Venice/Santa Monica community the best curated selection of natural pet foods, treats, toys, supplements, and supplies, and outstanding grooming. The staff offers customers and their pets an unmatched, highly personal shopping experience. Kriser's has been recognized with multiple national honors for excellence in the pet industry, most recently with the Best Overall Pet Retailer at the 2015 Global Pet Expo.
"Kriser's is overjoyed to bring our mission of helping pets live happier, healthier lives, naturally, to the Westside," said Brad Kriser, CEO and founder. "We strive to provide pet parents the tools for a natural lifestyle for their furry family members. Our new location in such a thriving part of LA is an exciting opportunity to carry on this tradition and become a resource for Venice and Santa Monica area pet parents."
Kriser's will offer a number of activities and promotions throughout the grand opening weekend, including free pet ID tags, giveaways, free pet nail trimmings from 11 - 4 on Saturday and Sunday, free pet photography on Saturday from 11-4, and in-store raffles for store and grooming gift certificates. (Giveaways and promotions are while supplies last.)
Also as part of the grand opening activities, Kriser's will deploy their signature Poo Fairies in dog-friendly locations around Venice and Santa Monica, ensuring the communities are "poo-free zones." The Kriser's Poo Fairies — complete with ears and tails — reward pet parents for picking up their dogs' poo with Kriser's coupons, dog treats and free poop bags.
The week prior to the Grand Opening Kriser's is calling on Venice area pet parents to bring their pets to work for a day. The Poo Fairies will be making visits to area businesses with treat jars and invitations to post pictures of their pets at work on Instagram, with #PetsatWork and #KrisersVenice. Kriser's will make a donation of $5 to Much Love Animal Rescue for unique posts with those hashtags. The donation of up to $5000 will be in the form of food and supplies to care for the pets who may not have a place to "go to work" that week.
Finally, Kriser's will be partnering with several local rescue groups in the Venice area. Customers will have an opportunity to cast their vote for their favorite participating organization when making a purchase. Kriser's will award a percentage of Saturday sales to the rescue with the most votes.
