I have gone to this store multiple times over the years and each time I wish I had not. It is usually desperation for some small item that I need immediately which drives me to go to this store.
The store is badly maintained- always dark and musty. Fish look sick and *are* sick, the stock is poor quality. I purchased some fish because honestly, I just felt really sorry for them, and although I quarantined them and treated them, 3 died. I have never lost fish like that. Everything is generally overpriced by 50-70%. You do get the dirt and grime covering every item for free though. I always have the impression that they are about to go out of business and are trying to leech every last cent from the few customers naive or desperate enough to shop there. One time there was a bucket full of floating plants that they were obviously going to trash. I merely asked what they were and they immediately tried to sell a tiny bit of it to me for $3. You could see the dollar signs lighting up in their eyes. Most stores would gladly give these sorts of things as freebies and win devoted lifelong customers through small acts of generosity, but not this store.
I will probably grudgingly go back to this store in the next year or two if they are still around, but I will hate myself afterwards. This is a perfect example of why people are shopping online for everything. I am happy to support local businesses, but this is not one.
