Natural foods shoppers may soon be flocking to Kildeer, not only for the human members of their family, but for their pets as well.
“It’s perfect really. We’re excited because there’s a lot of crossover audience seeking a natural solution. Kriser’s offers the best all-natural pet food,” said Danielle Mozeleski, of Formula PR, Inc. Kriser’s public relations firm.
The Kildeer store, at 20291 N. Rand Rd., will be Kriser’s ninth location. The pet retailer also has a store in South Barrington.
Recently named Best Overall Multi-Unit Pet Retailer in the U.S. at the 2013 Global Pet Expo, Kriser’s offers all-natural pet foods, treats, toys and supplies, as well as in-store services such as grooming, expert classes and pet birthday parties.
“Often referred by our customers as the ‘Whole Foods for pets,’ Kriser’s knows it’s important to feed our animals an all-natural, healthy diet just like humans,” said Brad Kriser, founder and CEO, in a press release. “That’s why we are committed to bringing Kildeer the best and most trustworthy selection of pet food and supplies, along with an unmatched customer service experience by providing them with the education and tools to keep their pets healthy.”
Kildeer Mayor Nandia Black and her four-legged companion, Brandy, will lead the ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, March 6, at 11 a.m. Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, the Kildeer store will host a weekend-long celebration with grand opening discounts, free nail trimmings and giveaways on March 9, and 10.
