When moving into the neighborhood, I always search for the local pet store (always avoid the chains!). Based on their name, I always thought Rivers and Reefs was for fish lovers only - not true at all. They have a wide selection of cat and dog foods, treats, toys and other accessories. I have been happily going for 3-4 years now. The staff has been nothing but absolutely friendly and helpful. \r
I am sorry that the person who left the bad review had such an unpleasant experience, but I assure you it does NOT reflect the atmosphere of this place. (Maybe they were just having a bad day, or were difficult themselves?) \r
They also have a great program - for every ten bags of dog food I buy, I get the 11th free! However, I don't think that it applies across the board - and may be through the brand I use (Nutro). Something to look in to though.
Pros: Friendly, helpful staff, great selection of healthy dog (and other) foods & treats
Cons: Never have liked the selling of animals, and they sell birds and fish here.
