Scales is closing it's doors
 
Umm, I didn't expect this. Huge liquidation sale, though, if anyone is looking for some equipment.

sorry to see your LFS is closing... looks like some serious bargains in the ad there. I often check the ads on the LFS around my place to see whether something's up. And, surprise, they have another 50% off all fish and plants sale, which as I understand it, only normally happens twice a year.

Tough economy for a single-line retailer like a fish store to survive in.

wow... that sucks... now I'm not going to have a decent LFS within an hour of me... looks like i need to take a trip over today.

I think I am getting one of those 40BR pre drills, I mean 40 bucks thats dirt for a 40BR.


Hopefully they ship.

I dunno... my guess is not... there were tanks streaming out the door today. They may not need to worry about shipping at this point.

Its only a day drive from chicago to calvert county so I know I can fit a 40B into my car. I got a bud in WV that can get it for me too. Ill make some calls.

Man that stinks!!! And they were so close. Now where am i going to get my daydreaming done?

JasonC 05-26-2009 04:58 PM

Yeah... none of the employees I asked had any ideas on where to go to replace their quality. Grrr... dont want to have to rely on crappy petsmart.

I know the Salties have a few options... but I dont know about the rest of you freshies, but everywhere else I have been has been...well... eh.

i was just there today. apparently they are already done liquidating and are permanently closed now.
i did talk to one of the guys there (i think it it was Andrew) and he told me about Tropical Fish World in gaithersburg. He said they seem to really care about the fish and customers.

I went to Tropical Fish World on Memorial Day, and it's quite nice. Another LFS option in the area is Tropical Lagoon, in Silver Spring.
