Discovered a new LFS
in East Mesa, Arizona
(right by Superstition Springs) by the name of THE PET SHOP
. They opened up at the end of June / early July 2012. Anyway, for those of you Arizonans that knew about Pet Inc. in Tempe, some of the friendly staff got together when that place closed down and opened up their own new spot.
My GF and I had the opportunity to pay The Pet Shop a visit and were impressed at how clean the store was (well it's new, it better be). I know it's still a work-in-progress, we were delighted to find a lot of goodies there in terms of fish, decor, etc. They need to step it up a bit in the live plants area, but the owner assured me that they are in the near future when it's not so boiling hot to get plants shipped safely...LOL
They had some pretty neat finds that you wouldn't find at the big box pet stores. For instance, they had some "BB" dwarf puffers, peacock gudgeons, mosquito rasboras, a good variety of cichlids, and other various fish (FW
They also have a great selection of malaysian dw!
Anyway, the owner, Vanessa was awesome and very friendly. Mat was their resident "fish guy" and he was pretty friendly and knowledgeable as well.
Great place, check them out if you're in the area!
