This is the first review of a store I have ever done. Do not purchase pets especially fish from this store. I recently purchased feeder fish for my larger fish, I normally buy crappie minnows but wanted to get some smaller guppies and ross for them. My wife put one of the tiny guppies in with her beta. I put the rest in with my purchased native fish. Today we lost the beta and one of the sunfish. The other two are very sick, all have the same disease, the only connection, Pet North. This is not the only time we have had problems with fish from this store. When we first started the tropical fish tank we lost many fish and I did a lot of treating of the tank to keep the fish alive and get them healthy again. Every time I have added fish I have had trouble. The tanks in the store are often filthy and even the ferret that was in the store when I purchased the feeder fish was sick. Sad to say but Wal-Mart takes better care of their fish then this store does, I will never buy another product from Pet North again, the service is also very poor.

The hamster I bought from PetNorth just died of wet tail. Wet tail is an intestinal disease often found in young hamsters. I have owned many hamsters and have never had this problem until now.

I do not advise buying small animals there. Wet tail is caused by bacteria in food or feces- I can only suspect the store carries this disease. What is strange is that I picked the hamster that looked the most healthy and it only took him three days to die.

I don't know how there other animals will be like when they first come home, and I don't care to know- I won't be buying from there ever again.

The store is nice, however the staff are NOT very knowledgeable. After myself & 6 other guests waited an waited while one of the employees busied herself with hiding in the back room & yelling at her young daughter, I finally went to the front register where I inquired upon what they reccomended for feeding the tropical fish I had special ordered through them.. She looked blankly at, then turned and googled the fish I was talking about! Next I asked if my fish had arrived, she had mo idea what I was talking about! So she,yelled to the woman hiding in the back. In the end they found my poor lil fish dead in the tank they had put him in. needless to say it was a dissapointing experience.

Dirty & dingy, this store needs a serious makeover so that it is more appealing to its customers. Also the stores employees need to learn some better customer service skills, I am rarely greeted when I walk into the store & I have never been asked if I was finding everthing ok or needed help finding anything. I recently purchased a sweater for my dog at Pet North for $19.99 then I visited another pet specialty store in the area and found the exact same sweater for almost $10 less! Plus at Pet North the sweater was only available in one size & one color. The other store had various sizes & 3 different colors, that I saw. It's nice to see a store that carriers a variety of outdoor winter clothing & accessories for dogs, seeing as how we live in one of the coldest/snowiest states. Needless to say I will be taking my business to the store with more friendly, knowledgeable staff.

Love it. The staff is helpful and friendly. They keep it very clean. The animals were all taking care of in the correct environments. They let you bring your pets in there to try on collars and sweaters. They were just all around a great place to shop. Would definitely return. I would recommend highly!
