All-Natural Pet Retailer Kriser's Adds New Streeterville Location to Chicago Lineup

Kriser’s brings Streeterville premium selection of all-natural pet food, supplies and grooming services


Chicago, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/22/2013 -- Kriser’s, a multi-unit retailer specializing in all-natural pet food, supplies and grooming, will open its 11th store in Chicago with the addition of a Streeterville location, creating a lineup of 21 stores nationwide. The opening is scheduled for Oct. 19 and 20 in Streeterville at 356 E. Ohio Street.

The new location will provide Chicago pet parents an all-natural lineup of pet food, treats, supplements, toys, supplies and more for both cats and dogs. Additionally, the Streeterville location will have an in-house grooming facility that utilizes all-natural grooming products and techniques. Having been named “Best Pet Store” by the Chicago Reader for the last two years, Kriser’s will be the go-to retailer for all of Streeterville’s pet needs.

“We look forward to becoming a resource for Streeterville and downtown residents who seek to provide their pets a healthy, all-natural lifestyle,” said Brad Kriser, Kriser’s CEO and founder. “With this new store, we will equip urban pet parents with the right knowledge and tools to support an all-natural lifestyle by providing an educational in-store experience that is unmatched by other pet retailers.”

To celebrate the retailer’s new location, Kriser’s will partner with three local rescue groups, One Tail at a Time, New Leash on Life and The Anti-Cruelty Society. Donations will be awarded to each organization as part of a grand opening contest where Chicagoans are encouraged to attend the grand opening and vote for their favorite animal shelter. Each customer can cast their vote by filling out a ballot provided by the Kriser’s staff and submitting it at the register. The rescue with the highest number of votes will receive product donations equivalent to 10 percent of pet food sales from grand opening day. The second place rescue will receive 5 percent and the third place rescue will receive an in-kind donation of Kriser’s product.

Kriser’s will also offer a variety of promotions as part of the weekend-long grand opening. Promotions will include 20 percent off all pet food and supplies and four plush toys for a total of $5. Kriser’s also will be giving away 25 percent off coupons for a pet’s first groom and free nail trimmings all weekend. Complimentary professional photos with pets will be taken on Oct. 19 from noon to 4 p.m.
