Off to Japan(posted: 13-04-2009)
Dear Koi Club Member
WE Off TO JAPAN:-
Well our spring visit to Japan is now here. We fly out Tuesday 14th April, and start to visit breeders on Thursday 16th April.
This year we are very excited to not only buy new stock for our fish house, but also stock for the 50k.
Why not visit our Japan pages HERE
Here you will see our collection of koi purchased whilst visiting each breeder. Each koi will be individually priced, with a photo and in most cases a video to complement each bowl of koi shown.
Purchasing koi online before Wednesday 22nd April 12noon and you will gain up to 20% members discount on each koi. Once the koi arrive in the UK and placed on our main website they will be at the usual members 10% discount for the remainder of the season. To avoid disappointment we strongly suggest you purchase early. We understand you may like to see all the koi on display before you make your choice, but this in the past has left people disappointed as the koi they really wanted had been snapped up quickly. You are welcome to change your mind whilst we are still in Japan (before Wednesday 22nd April), so change a koi purchase. However we cannot change any koi once we return, so please choose wisely.
Every tosai over the value of £450 (before discount) qualifies for the chance to grow on this season in our specially designed 50,000gallon indoor pond. Every for sure last year was amazed not only with the quality of koi we harvested from this pond but also the growth achieved and value for money this service brings to the hobby in the UK!
Of course we will but buying many koi under £450 for stock in our fish house, some of which will be posted on our Japan pages and again purchase whilst in Japan will gain 20% members discount.
If you purchase a koi to go into the 50k whilst we are in Japan (before Wednesday 22nd April), we will put into a prize draw your purchase and the chance to win a FREE growing on service for 2009 worth £195. If you have already purchased this service a credit of £195 will be added to your loyalty points system.
Please remember you can use up to 50% of the price of a koi with your loyalty points saved.
You cannot use loyalty points towards the service of growing a koi.
We ask that all koi kept with us at present be collected by Sunday 26th April. The weather is quite good at this point of time, so unless you have pre-arranged a little longer than this date we will be charging £10 per week per koi beyond this deadline. Please understand it is critical for us that your koi are collected as soon as possible. Of course under extreme circumstances we will be fairly understandable but we need to be consulted.
20% Koi Sale and 10% dry goods.
This weekend coming is the LAST weekend for the foreseeable future that these IN-STORE member discounts will be on offer. So if you still have your eye on that special koi, or you need some dry goods to collect from our store, then this weekend is your last chance to grab these offers.
See you soon
The Richdon Koi Team
