There are people like this with hardware stores and such - browsing thru the aisles, bickering over overpriced things, playing around with useless crap they won't actually buy, pondering what to actually get if anything....is there anyone here that does this at pet stores? LOL I do! It's a good rainy/when you've got nothing better to do day activity - I go in, walk thru the aisles, look at food, read ingredient labels, go thru the toy sections, balk at how expensive easily destroyed plushies are, fish thru the sales bin for something decent, peruse the cleaning products, look thru the poopbags, clickers and leashes. maybe wander over to the cat/small animal section for a peek then I usually leave with a small bag of treats or a clearance kong airdog ball :lol-sign: The one I frequent is literally just a few blocks away from the house so it's super convenient location wise, It could have better educated staff and a less awkward environment for dogs - bully sticks for sale in a low bin right on the floor...good for teaching "leave it" I guess xd. I also venture out to Petsmart, Bosley's, PJ's pets, and a few other local chains.... I prefer the hominess of the more neighborhood adjacent stores - but I like the "warehouse"/super center feel of the big ones like Petsmart. The PJ's pets sells reptiles, birds, kittens (erm...kitty mill??), small animals, and has a koi pond/fountain in it as well - so that's always fun to check out.
