Pets have holiday season, too!
The holiday season is in full swing, and Coo & Riku, one of the largest and best known pet shop chains in Japan, has launched its Christmas Campaign.
Pets and merchandise will be discounted this month, while the cat café will be 50% discounted on weekdays. Coo & Riku’s Animal Hospital opens tomorrow through December 8th, and again December 19th ~ 22nd.
A visit to Coo & Riku is paradise for both pets and people. The first floor of the Coo & Riku Urasoe branch is a animal heaven, with more than 3,000 pet items available, set up by category to make it easy to find just the right item quickly. The pet sales section is also on the first floor. Sofas are set in front of the cages so potential buyers can ask a staff member to bring a pet from its cage to spend some one-on-one time to see if the animal’s “just right”.
Coo & Riku also offers a selection of 4,000 pets from their more than 70 branches across Japan through their website, Moving the pet from any of the branches within Japan to Okinawa is free; up to two pets per family.
Coo & Riku cannot sell pets after 8:00 p.m. because of the Animal Protection Law, and the pets’ prices do not include vaccination. Coo & Riku staff says “We will be receiving rare dogs, so please visit our shop with your family, and have fun buying pet supplies, spending good time in the café and watching the rare pets!” They are serving and accepting reservations for Christmas sweets or Japanese dishes for pets at the cafe located on the 2nd floor.
Coo & Riku is open seven days a week, all year around, from 10 a.m. ~ 8 p.m.
