Susie and John Mims are pleased to announce that the newest Wild Birds Unlimited Nature Shop is now open at 4523 Kingwood Dr., Suite 130, Kingwood.
“We’re the new home of the best bird food in town,” said Susie, owner of the shop. “Stop by and see the new store; we’ve brought nature indoors and created a very calming, relaxing environment.”
Wild Birds Unlimited Nature Shop will be celebrating its grand opening on Jan. 20. Nature talks, prize drawings, refreshments, giveaways and product demonstrations make this a celebration suitable for the entire family.
“We are very excited to share the hobby of backyard bird feeding with the residents of Kingwood. This hobby is second only in popularity to gardening and is enjoyed by more than 53 million Americans,” John said.
Grand opening activities include: free bird feeder starter kit to all customers, while supplies last; feeder swap; birds of prey presentation from The Wildlife Center of Texas (donations will be accepted) at 11 a.m.; and drawings for door prizes, including free seed for a year, a free bird feeding station, and a $50 shopping spree.
Participating in the feeder swap promotion is a great way to give back to the community. Customers bring in their old bird feeders and then get a 20 percent discount on the purchase of a new one. Salvageable, traded-in feeders will then be cleaned, sanitized and donated.
Attendees can also help the birds at this event. A portion of sales will go to The Wildlife Center of Texas, one of the largest and most advanced wildlife rehabilitation centers in Texas, serving Harris and surrounding counties. They will also be on hand for the grand opening event, giving a birds of prey presentation.
Wild Birds Unlimited carries a variety of seeds and seed blends that have been specially formulated to attract birds in this region. Seed blends are mixtures of seeds and nuts that numerous birds will eat. Seed will be delivered every week or two so customers get only the freshest bird food possible. In addition, the retailer will carry bird feeders, bird houses and specialty garden and gift items not found elsewhere.
Every Wild Birds Unlimited seed purchase comes with a guarantee. If a customer is dissatisfied with the seed in any way, he or she can bring it back for a new bag.

Wild Birds Unlimited specializes in bringing people and nature together with bird feeding and nature products, expert advice and educational events.
