Animal Pantry closed for renovations

Perhaps they will expand their salt water section - it has gone downhill since the older gentleman (John?) left.

Yup. Been closed for a few weeks. Supposed to reopen with new owners...but I'm not sure if they will improve, or even keep the fish section.

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.

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.

Also a fairly large new pet store opened practically across the street, no fish (within a block or two). You don't close your doors for renovations under those conditions. Somebody is making bad business moves.

Maybe we can get them a government bailout.
