If I were a new owner sprucing up a long time successful business, I would not disconnect the phone number, not even temporarily. I would put a recording on about how I am making improvements and when I expect to reopen.I called the number and the recording said it was temporarily disconnected - if they were going out of business they would just disconnect the phone permanently.
Joe was the older guy that used to work there. He was a real nice guy. I hope the new owners set up a nice fish room. I also hope they have some knowledgeable people on staff. After joe was gone i never ran into anyone working there who had any idea about the fish they were selling. I pass by Animal Pantry often so If I notice it's open I will let you know.
Were they set up for salt water? Just with no livestock? Or not even salt water tanks?I was in there today and they had no saltwater stuff what so ever.
