Island’s premier pet store is celebrating

Coo & Riku has a large selection of pets on the premises plus an additional 5,000 on line to choose from.

Coo & Riku pet store is celebrating, as its Urasoe branch hits the milestone second anniversary at its location in Minatogawa, Urasoe City.

The Coo & Riku anniversary special sale will run until July 20th featuring dozens of special deals on top of their already reasonable prices.  It’s easy to choose a pet at Coo & Riku, and if there is none in the shop that catches the fancy of a patron, they can choose from online. With more than 4,000 pets available at their more than 70 branches across Japan, finding the right one is all but guaranteed. Moving a pet from any of the branches within Japan to Okinawa is free for up to two pets per person.

Coo & Riku has a lounge where customers can take their time and get to know their prospective future pets.

The second floor of the Coo & Riku shop has a cafe where pets are welcome to accompany their owners. Pet clinics and a hair trimming room are also on site, and there is also a kids’ space where children can play while parents shop.

At Coo & Riku there are handmade cakes and dishes for pets, and for dogs needing exercise, there is an indoor dog run with air conditioning to boot. Coo & Riku Urasoe is described by patrons as “truly a paradise” for both pet owners and their pets.

The sprawling pet store’s management says “If you are not a pet owner yet, now is the big chance to purchase one! Coo & Riku Urasoe branch offers special discounts while the anniversary celebration goes on. If you purchase a pet costing over ¥50,000 and bring the Japan Update paper or say ‘I saw the ad or story of Coo & Riku in Japan Update’ when paying at the register, Coo & Riku will discount ¥10,000 from the cost.”

Coo & Riku cannot sell pets after 8 p.m. because of the Animal Protection Law, and the pets’ prices don’t include vaccination.  As an additional incentive, Coo & Riku is featuring a special 20% off for trimming for pet for the first time. There are also free give away presents for customers who visit with pets!
