One would think a china shop would discourage or even prohibit pets from going near their delicate product. But that’s not the case at Replacements, the world’s largest china retailer based near Greensboro, North Carolina. Not only does the company allow their employees to bring well-behaved pets to work everyday, but they also encourage customers to bring pets to the shop. With roughly 70,000 visitors a year, Replacements sees a wide range of animals including dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, pot belly pigs, a duck, a hawk, and even a possum. And, according to public relations manager Lisa Conklin, these animals are less destructive than their owners. “We break things all the time,” says Conklin. “But I’ve never seen a pet break our china.”
