Pros

It's close to my house - less than 10 minute drive.

Cons

To many to list. Just know that all the negative reviews are absolutely 100% true.

Advice to Management

Why bother. I really don't know how some of you sleep at night or look at yourselves in the mirror.

    Pros

    Customers always come in with a smile 90% of the time comparied to other retai stores.
    Always nice to help achild get their first pet.
    Having a chance to play with the pets and not take them home.

    Cons

    The concept of over greeting customers to make the customers think there are more associates in the store.
    The policey of managers not being able to ring customers out,when you are given 5 associates a day and 2 or 3 are managers .
    The Challenge of running a retail company and balancing true animal care along with that

    Advice to Management

    Have everyone from corporate from jim meyers,Tom FORRELLO, AND ALL OTHER UPPER MANAGEMENT TO WORK 1-2 WEEKS IN A STORE UNANNOUNCED AND EVEN ON THEIR VISITS SHOW UP WITHOUT ANY NOTICE TO SEE REALITY.
