The Pokémon Company International has finally decided to open up its Pokémon Center online store to a new region, with the site now officially being available in Canada.
Previously a US-only affair, the Pokémon Center has been selling a wonderful variety of high-quality, official Pokémon goods for years. Fans can find figures, imported plush, apparel and accessories, home decor, kitchenware, outdoor gear, Trading Card Game goods, and more, but until now, only those in the US had access to its products.
"We are thrilled to bring Pokémon Center to our fans in Canada, giving them additional ways to express and celebrate their Pokémon fandom through premium merchandise," said Cindy Ruppenthal, director of e-commerce at The Pokémon Company International. "Pokémon Center has something for every type of Trainer—whether it’s to play, collect, decorate, or wear—and we look forward to seeing even more Trainers enjoy these offerings."
To celebrate its grand opening, Pokémon Center customers in the US and Canada will receive a Pokémon TCG promo card featuring 'Special Delivery Pikachu' at no additional cost with any eligible purchase, while supplies last, of course.
Now, here's hoping that Europe can get in on the act, too. Last year's pop-up store in the UK was great, but we need a permanent solution!
