BIG NEWS! The first Rilakkuma Store in the US opening!

Taking a break from working in the intensive care unit for amazing news:

The first Rilakkuma Store is opening in the US, and it’s coming to FLORIDA!!

This limited time pop up store has a soft opening on September 30, with a grand opening on October 14!

The soft opening happening this weekend will just be the doors opening to the public. The big festivities will take place during the grand opening two weeks later, which will feature photo opportunities, prizes, and giveaways!

For more information, check out this article from Business Wire, and follow Rilakkuma North America (on Facebook and Instagram) and Rilakkuma US (on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).

I can’t believe the first Rilakkuma Store is opening in my home state!!

I hope this is the beginning of many US Rilakkuma Stores to come, and can’t wait to see if there will be any store opening exclusives announced—maybe Rilakkuma eating an orange, our state fruit? Or perhaps an alligator Rilakkuma, or a Florida tourist Rilakkuma?

I am planning on attending both the soft opening AND the grand opening, and I will be covering this pop-up store on my blog — will I see you there?
