Pet owners will have a new option for all-natural items in Orland Park when Kriser's opens this weekend.
Kriser’s, a retailer specializing in all-natural pet food, supplies and grooming services, opens Saturday, Dec. 7 at 15160 S. LaGrange Rd. It will be the store's 12th Chicago-area location and 22nd nationally.
“Our goal with this opening is to provide Orland Park pet parents with a one-stop shopping experience for all of their healthy, all-natural pet necessities,” CEO and founder Brad Kriser said in a news release. “We want our customers’ pets to live long, healthy lives and continually make it our goal to educate and provide them with the tools and resources needed to support an all-natural lifestyle for their pets.”Chicago Reader named Kriser's "Best Pet Store" the past two years. It provides all-natural pet food, treats, supplements, toys, supplies and more for cats and dogs, and the Orland Park location will have an in-house grooming facility that utilizes the natural products sold there.
To celebrate the retailer’s new location, Kriser’s will partner with three local rescue groups. Donations of Kriser’s product will be awarded to each organization as part of a grand opening contest where Orland Park residents are encouraged to attend the grand opening and vote for their favorite animal shelter or rescue. Each customer can cast their vote by filling out a ballot provided by the Kriser’s staff and submitting it at the register. Prizes will be awarded incrementally based on votes.
Throughout the weekend, Kriser’s will offer a variety of promotions as well. Customers can look forward to 20 percent off all pet food and supplies and four plush toys for a total of $5.
