Been here a few times and seems as though not too many employees are knowledgeable about their aquarium and aquatics section

First time in and absolutely amazing experience. Staff is great, very helpful, I didn’t catch the name of the woman who helped me but saying she was amazing would be a understatement. They have wide variety for any pet owner. Definitely will be returning many times. I purchased 2 arachnids as I have a wide variety already and was very happy to see how well cared for and the great condition these tarantulas were in. I’m super excited to have both these species now in my arachnid room! What shocked me most was seeing these 2 species locally. Not a common thing to see.

Do NOT adopt from here. They sell animals that are sick with worms.

you can get a pet from here, but be warned, the pet will likely be riddled with worms.

I was out of dog food and drove 30 minutes to Critters Pet Shop after checking their website for their Mon- Fri hours of operation which were listed as 10am- 8pm. I attempted to enter the store at 6:15 pm, but the door was locked. 3 employees stared at me from different locations in the store and then looked away ignoring me. I rapped and rapped on the door. Again, the employees looked at me but chose to look away again. I stood there knocking loudly to get anybody to acknowledge me. Finally a young man came to the door. I told him I drove a long way to Critters as I showed him on my phone that the store’s web site indicates the store is supposed to be open until 8pm. He said sorry the owner didn’t update the website but we’re closed and turned his back. Employees should not look up at customers knocking on their door and repeatedly ignore them in spite of numerous attempts to get their attention. Proprietors should not list that they’re open on their web site when they are actually closed causing customers to waste time & gas driving across suburbs to their store.

I will only be buying my animals from them going forward no joke. Ive had the healthiest animals from them. Every other pet shop ive been too because it was closer i end up with super sick animals with all sorts of issues. They love animals here and truly take great care of them!

The owner helped us with our purchase. She was absolutely wonderful and you can tell how much she really cares and loves for the animals. She also does adoptions out of the shop. We drove 45 minutes for our specific need and it was completely worth it just dealing with her.

Very nice people and quite the community little shop. Selection isn't great and prices are a bit more than i like to pay but do love the small town feel.
