I think it depends on which Big Als, and if it's corporate or franchised, as well as the staff you deal with. I'm close to the Mississauga store and have spent a ton of money there over the years, so I'm a good customer. I'm about to cash in 3000 points worth and not for the first time. They treat me quite well, but I rarely take things back. If I do, they usually replace or fix without any problem. Same for livestock, if I make a claim with their guarantee. I don't take fish back if I'm the reason they didn't make it, which is sometimes the case. I make a point of trying to treat all the staff as I would like to be treated, and that helps too. Overall, I can't complain. Though their prices are often a bit higher, they do beat Petsmart in terms of the quality and variety of livestock and the sheer breadth of goods stocked.
