Since we are new in SoCal, we continue to explore dog-related places and stores. Last weekend, Sugar explored Kriser’s Natural Pet Store, Irvine, CA. Kriser’s is a familiar pet store that we often visit in our old neighborhood in Wilmette, Il.
Kriser’s invited Sugar to visit their store location in Irvine, CA. Sugar was provided a gift card to shop and help spread the word about Kriser’s Natural Pet Store, but Golden Woofs only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Kriser’s is not responsible for the content of this article.
Brad Kriser founded Kriser’s Natural Pet Store. His senior dog Maggie inspired him and how the natural lifestyle helped pets to live a better life. Brad Kriser started in the pet business when he opened The Barking Lot in 2000, a pet care services in Chicago. The store had a small selection of all-natural pet supplies that took off. From these, in 2006 Kriser opened his first store in Lincoln Park, Chicago. He now has grown to 30 locations which include Southern California, metro-Denver, and Houston area. Last March at Global Pet Expo, Kriser’s Natural Pet Store was named as the best overall multi-unit pet retailer specializing in natural pet food, supplies, and grooming.

“The Whole Foods of the pet world—that’s what we want to be known as.”
4 Reasons To Visit Kriser’s Natural Pet Store
1. Welcoming Environment – The layout of Kriser’s store was inviting. The staff register was visible as we entered the store, and we were greeted by a happy employee. The shelves were low, orderly and products were amply stocked. The dark wood shelvings provided extra product visibility and made it appealing. There were adequate lighting (not super bright) throughout the store and made shopping more pleasurable.
2. Trustworthy Brands – I’m a pet brand conscious pet parent and so happy to find most the products we use are at Kriser’s store. Kriser’s carries many of the treat brands that Sugar enjoys. Also, we are glad to find out that Kriser’s keeps Sugar’s kibble brand in stock (which not many stores here in OC carry).
3. Friendly & Educated Service – Kriser’s employees are allowed to bring their pets to the store. For sure this privilege makes their workday better for everyone – especially for Kriser’s customers.
4. Personal Touch & Approved by Brad Kriser – Throughout the store, you can sense the meticulous involvement of Brad Kriser. Products have gone through a “Brad Kriser evaluation” and most of the products has a special seal “Kriser’s Approved.”
Each Kriser’s store also offers grooming services. They only use natural pet products, no harsh chemical and pawfect for a pet with sensitive skin. One of the services they offer is blueberry facials, BOL!!! A service that I definitely would like to try for Sugar.
