At one time I considered this to be the nicest pet store I've ever seen.... No more. What was once a wonderful place to find rare exotic animals and fish that were well maintained and taken care of is now a sad shadow of it's former self. A good majority of the store is torn apart for some reason and more than half of the tanks have several dead or diseased fish in them. I was absolutely disgusted at how the fish and animals were treated here and I would never return. They must have new owners or something, because I never in a million years would have expected such a rapid decline of something that was once so great. I'd rather buy fish at Wal-Mart.

The Westchester location of Scott's is great. They have a wide variety. One nice thing with both Scott's locations is that salespeople do not "hound" you. You are permitted to shop without pressure. As is normal there sometimes is some water in the area with the fish. Just make sure you are extra careful there.

The Westmont location of Scott's is 95%+ fish This isnot all bad except I think they could have held back on the large aquarium in the front and had more room for other items. I have only been there a couple times with my family. We do go for the shark feedings on some Saturdays.

I used to go to this pet shop years ago and remember it being a friendly more top notch pet store but, i havent been there in probably 5 years because i discovered trop-aquadics in lombard which is alot closer to me. Anyways I decided to go yesterday and was somewhat disappointed. As I wanted to make a purchase the staff seemed alittle annoyed that I asked if I could pick some corals to purchase while they were eating lunch. The corals that I wanted where in a tank with no pricing. As I asked the for the pricing on each coral I wanted, it seemed the more interested I was in the coral the more they wanted for it as if the prices where being made up. "um well that one is going to 39.99 but its 20% off"?? this was a small frag of a soft coral which couldnt really of cost more than 20 at any other place. Then I moved on to fish. I found this really interesting fish that I wanted and started asking about it. The staff knew nothing from being reef safe to what it eats or how big it gets. Also there was 3 fish listed on the tank with prices. Of coarse that one fish I wanted wasnt listed on the tank with the price. Once again that was 39.99 but 10% off hahaha I didnt buy it. I felt I was getting ripped off. Products are good but staff seemed as if they were hired yesterday.

Pros: big selection of corals and sw fish

Cons: staff doesn't know what they are talking about

I have been going to the Scotts pet shop for a while. I have seen the store go down for sometime now. Recently I visited the store and was surprised by the way this store has come back. The fish tanks are full or huge quantities of fish, both saltwater and fresh water. Huge selection of corals all sizes, kittens, many reptiles and as usual huge selection of quality food for dogs and cats. They are also selling premixed RI water for both slatwater and freshwater aquariums. I was happy I came back to this store, surprisingly the prices are very low considering the economy. I wish sotts pet shop good luck

Like this store, it is always a plesure to come over and see friendly faces. The angels I bought over there are very healthy and grown 3 times in size already :)!

Once a great saltwater shop. Sad to say it has gone way dow hill. I would tell you to not wast your time. Selection on fish is poor and corals are junk at best. I hope they make a come back. This was on of the great per shops of the past!

Scott's Pet Shop has always been my favorite place to go for pets supplies, and pets in the past. It's always been easy to talk to the helpful staff about any concerns or problems I have with my pets, or just any question I have about the store and its animals and supplies. I have bought pets from there before, like one of my parakeets and many fish, and they're always where I go for bird food or supplies for my betta fish. But recently, I've learned about and witnessed the homeless pet problem in the U.S. by volunteering at the animal shelter right down the street from Scott's, called CatNap from the Heart, Inc. It's a non-profit, no-kill, volunteer shelter on the corner of 31st and Beach, in LaGrange Park, IL. At CatNap, we take in and house give-up and stray animals like cats, rabbits*, guinea pigs, chinchillas*, r*ts, m*ce, gerbils*, hamsters*, and many birds, like parakeets*, finches*, cockatiels*, some large parrots* and a canary*, many if which are *sold at Scott's. While Scott's is the perfect ,local place for pet supplies, I no longer believe it's right to buy an animal from there when so many pets are ready and available and looking for a home at CatNap. The pets there are sometimes already fixed, vaccinated, and socialized before "buying" from the shelter--and the adoption fee isn't really a "price" for the animal, it's a reimbursement for all the veterinary care, volunteer time, food, and housing (like litter, bedding) that CatNap has put into the animal. It's a much kinder way, I believe, to find the perfect pet at CatNap than to buy an animal at Scott's.
Once again, Scott's is an amazing place for pet supplies, but just not right for pets. A little more effort and searching can be a much more rewarding way to find your perfect pet.

I purchased a complete aquarium from Scotts Pet Shop 2 months ago and phoned them because of a lighting problem I was experiencing.
When I called on the phone they told me to bring the hood of the aquarium in and he would take a look at it.
After just a few minute wait, I was helped by a nice guy who checked to make sure of my problem.
He then opened a new aquarium and handed me a new one and informed me that he would handle the return with MarineLand (aquarium manufacturer.)
EXCELLENT customer service!
The girl at the front counter that I had spoke with when I had called said that she was happy that I received what I needed and told me that she thought to herself, "What would I have done in his situation".
Again, EXCELLENT customer service!
5 star staff!

Scotts Pet Shop has just about anything you could be looking for, and they carry a good quality of product. I appreciate the fact that they do not sell puppies or kittens as I will not buy from a store which does. They have a large selection of ultra premium dog foods and a staff knowledgeable enough to discuss them fluently. My kids always love coming along and looking at the fish and small birds, hamsters, rabbits, etc. It is rare to see an animal here that does not look well, unlike the chains where I frequently cringe every time I look in a new cage.

This is a great pet store. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful about dogs and all the different issues that may come up. They carry a huge selection of the best dog foods on the market, and nothing that is of poor quality, i.e. Alpo, Kibbles & Bits. They have very reasonable prices, even comparable to the web. They are one of the very few stores that I have found that carry Orijen products. If you're looking for cheap food for your dog, don't go here. If you're looking for the very best that the dog food market has to offer, they will probably have it.

Scotts pet shop focuses on fish. They are a clean pet store with knowledgable staff. They have plenty of common freshwater fish to the more exotic salt water fish (Lionfish, tangs and Angel Fish). Their return policy is less than your chain store (in case the fish dies) but because they take care of the water and tanks without a central pump system, their fish is less likely to have any diseases or die when you purchase the fish. They have all types of fish food, equipment, plants, tanks and gravel. They can also order any parts you may need for your pumps, tank or fish equipment. They can also try to special order a certain fish you are looking for.
