    Petco or Petsmart?

    What's your pet store of choice?

    I just discovered that we have a Petco (though it's on the other side of town so I haven't been yet, nor have I ever been to one!). Plus we have Petsmart, Pet Supplies Plus, and Natural Pet Supply store.

    Petsmart was always my favorite, but now I'm kind of favoring Pet Supplies Plus because it's really close to our house.

    Just wondering what everyone else's first choice was!

    Since the horrible Petco incident in Binghamton, NY earlier this year, I'd rather shop at PetSmart or a local store.

    Totally did not know about that till I just googled it . Maybe I won't be shopping at Petco after all, which kind of sucks because they have some of the stuff I need cheaper.

    I have always preferred PetsMart. When I've asked questions, the folks there are knowledgable. The people in PetCo, it's just a job, they haven't a clue!

    Mind you, PetCo is less than 1/2 mile from my home, nearest PetsMart is 18 miles and in the midst of a shopping crunch - wall to wall malls - so I have to really plan my trips up there.
    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    I've worked for Petco for over 9 years. I go to Petsmart on rare occassions but it's much easier to buy stuff where I work and I get an employee discount...so that's pretty much the only pet place I shop.

    Amy, did your Petco or Petco Corporate discuss or send any memos out about the Binghamton incident? Just curious ... as I hadn't heard any follow-up after the immediate reaction ...

    PetsMart and a local store (part of a chain) Animal Supply House. I get Eagle Holistic locally, which I cannot get at PetsMart.

    Petco prices are usually 20% higher than PetsMart in our area.

    There is no Petco close to me. I shop at Petsmart and Pet Supplies Plus. They're not far from each other but are a 30 mile round trip for me.

    I'm not sure...if it doesn't have to do with grooming, I don't hear about it. I did read a memo about how to evacuate animals though if that's the incident you're talking about.

    Does that man they've changed their policy to allow folks to evacuate animals and take them to their own homes out of the danger zone?

    Pet Club is my first choice. Their prices are great. It's like a Costco/Sam's Club for pets but without a membership fee. I've always preferred Petsmart to Petco and I have both close to me. I also sometimes shop at An -Jan Feed & Supply Store too.

    Because I have 8 cats, I try to find the best deals on canned food, litter and dry food. PetSmart has a great deal on Friskies canned food. $.40/can!! I can get a case for $9.90, and Wilderness Blue for $31.00 for a large bag, regularly $34.00. Also, they have a huge bucket of Tidy Cat (38 lbs for $11.45). I'll use PetSmart for all those deals till the sale is over. Then I go back to Pet Supplies Plus. Out of the three, PSP is the one with the cheaper, everyday prices.

    Rest In Peace Casey (Bubba Dude) Your paw print will remain on my heart forever. 12/02

    I have to agree Pet Supplies Plus tends to be cheaper. I'm glad I moved somewhere that has two since I'd never heard of them before I moved here, haha.

    Seems everyone likes Petsmart better too. Both are on the west side of town for me, so unless I'm at school, not convenient to go to Petsmart or Petco.
