If you care about animals and are socially-responsible you will not support Alsip Nursery. They buy their dogs and cats from "breeders" and by supporting their store you are perpetuating this practice. Certainly do not buy an animal from there which is perpetuating this practice first-hand. On average 10,000 homeless dogs and cats are euthanised in our country on a daily basis. If you care about animals you will get your pet at a shelter, at a place like Petco or Petsmart (which often have shelter animals for sale) or a breed-specific rescue organization.

THEY BUY FROM PUPPY MILLS AND CHARGE YOU 7-10X WHAT THEY PAY FOR THE PUPPY! About 2 years ago my husband brought home a golden retriever puppy for our family that he purchased at the Alsip Nursery for $900. She had some health problems caused by living in unsanitary conditions (the vet said) that medicine cleared up in a couple weeks. But not a good sign I thought. Because I had concerns about where she came from, I went in to the pet department and asked who/where the breeders were. They reluctantly gave me the "breeder's" name. Went home and did some research on the computer. I came across an organization that will research your puppy and attempt to give you specific details on where your puppy came from. (http://www.petshoppuppies.org) Within a week I heard back from them that our dog came from Iowa and at the breeder's last state mandated inspection 9 months prior, they had 96 dogs on the premises. They had some other violations in their history as well. That is a puppy mill. Since then I have heard many negative stories about dogs purchased at Alsip Nursery. People believe that when they buy a puppy at Alsip Nursery, they are getting a higher quality puppy then they would at some other puppy store. I know I did. Alsip Nursery is taking advantage of their reputation for selling high quality products when they sell their loyal trusting customers a low quality puppy mill puppy. Time to clean up your act....and your high profit pet department! I think it is time our community sends them a message about what our values and beliefs concerning animals are. You are taking a risk if you buy a puppy from Alsip Nursery. Go to an animal shelter and take a risk there!

We love to go to Alsip Home & Nursery, even if just to look around. They have a wonderful selection of plants, trees, flowers...just about anything you would need for landscaping. They also have a section with outdoor furniture, grills, and even puppies!! We love to look at the puppies, they are always adorable. The prices have always seemed a little high to me, but they have such a great selection, and knowledgeable staff, that it is worth it to me. I would highly recommend Alsip Home & Nursery if you are looking for anything related to landscaping or outdoor living!

Alsip's does have a great garden center and a nice wide variety of trees, shrubs, perennials and more. But what I like best is the new home decor section they have added. They have great accessories, accent furniture and artwork located in the center of the store. They also have toys, floral, christmas shop, grills and patio furniture. This is a fun place to shop no matter what time of year.

This place is huge! They have a vast selection of gardening and yard supplies, as well as items like holiday decorations, swing systems, etc. Their plants are healthy and hardy, and they guarantee their products.

This is a large store where you can find anything for just about any occasion. They carry, as the name implies, a large supply of garden product and plants. The survival of the plant that I have bought there has been good. They also have a substantial supply of holiday decorations with reasonable after hoilday sales. Pet supplies along with the pets can be purchased. I cannot attest to the quiality of animals as I have not purchased one. The range of collectables offered is also good. Prices are reasonable but some items can be on the high side.
