Newsletter Feb-08(posted: 21-02-2008)
We are releasing our first batch of tosai this weekend (23rd/24th February).
All koi have been through our STRICT bio-secure (no public access) for the past 4 weeks.
These consist of the following:-
Jumbo Tosai Showa from Sekiguchi
Aoki- Metalic koi
We will be posting pictures of most of these koi onto our web site in the next few days. We will also have some Dainichi koi for £75 to £125 each,which will not be on our web site sorry.
If ordering online, please let us know in the comments box when you will be collecting these koi, sorry we cannot send them via courier at this point in time as they are too young to be stressed due to the lower temperatures of shipping.
Please understand we cannot hold these koi for long periods of time, only a week or two at most. These koi are being kept at 18c, so warmer water is advised.
We can however offer a growing on service where we will grow the koi for you this summer ready for collection this coming autumn. We charge only £125 per koi for this service. Due to growing pond space a minimum value of a koi has been set at £400 (including discount)
Don't forget your membership details and loyalty points.
We are also releasing our cheaper tosai on the 1st March starting at £15 upwards. These koi are being held at 17c, and we ask they go to heated systems only until Spring arrives. These koi will not be photographed for our web site, there are just too many of them and so many different types.
Prices will include £15, £25, £35 and £50.

LOYALTY POINTS SYSTEM UP AND RUNNING:-
DOUBLE POINTS ON KOI UNTIL THE END OF FEBRUARY.
We are pleased to announce our new loyalty scheme has been a massive success with so much positive feedback and happy customers. This scheme for sure is one of the best deals you can get in the Uk on dry goods and our extensive collection of koi.
When you order online, via phone or in the shop you will receive on your loyalty points.
For every £10 (after club discount) spent on dry goods OR koi you will receive a single loyalty point
This point is then equivalent to £1 against a purchase of a koi in the future. So if you spend £500 (after club discount) on dry goods you will gain £50 worth of points towards your next koi from Richdon Koi.
These points are NONE refundable nor can be used against dry goods purchases.
This system is now operational!
We have formed this scheme as a thank you to the 1000's of customers we have who use our services and are loyal to Richdon Koi. Also as a massive incentive for you to take advantage of being a Richdon Koi Club member for your future purchases, and to consider Richdon Koi every time you either want goods or that special koi.
When visiting our shop you will receive a membership card to show each time you visit in the future.
