A pet store with everything you need. Has a local feel, not like a huge chain, yet has all the inventory you need. Warm, helpful staff.

I’ve been shopping at Brookdale Pet Center for well over 10 years. They carry all the well known holistic and natural dog foods. I buy Raw Dynamic dog food and Answers Pet Food and Primal Pet Foods goat milk. The prices are fair, and Chris and his staff are always pleasant and cordial. I highly recommend this shop.

I went here since I’m trying to get away from big box stores. They have a lot of items, and a lot that I haven’t seen anywhere else for skin problems. Staff wasn’t as knowledgeable in some items as I’d think but I ended up with what I wanted.

My wife and I went for the 1st time today. There's two hour limit street parking down the block. We walked up to the store, the door was open, the display coming in was designed well. We were greeted by a man who was on register even though he looked busy. There are 3 aisles: Birds, Reptiles, and Fish is aisle one, followed by Cats, and Dogs. There's a lot to buy for dogs treats-wise. We brought our cat in, they had her food in stock and they had unique cat toys that we haven't seen anywhere else so we bought her the crinkly slice of cake. There's a clearance section next to the register. On being rung up, we were offered to be apart of their rewards program as the cashier explained the perks, we said yes because it sounds like a great program. Then with the food we purchased we were told about a deal to get a free product with it, and we were interested. He showed us the items and explained that one was great for the coat and joints and the other for digestion. And we left. The people here seem like they care and are very knowledgeable. It was a great experience and although the store is far from us, we will go every month rather than ordering online.

My dog loves this place. We live just down the street and every day she wants to go there, she pulls me there! I have to explain to her that they don't open til 10am. But it's a great pet store, they have lots of great brands, all kinds of dog foods, toys, SNACKS, healthcare (flea/tick, nail clippers, etc.) clothing products. AND they have small animals, birds, and of course products for them and cats and even wild bird seeds/suets. We love to visit and Molly always chooses a little snack while we're there. Staff is always friendly and helpful, and they are definitely covid-safe!

I gave this place countless chances to improve. I don't think there has been one single time where my pet food order has went according to plan. The order would either be 'forgotten', 'delayed', or the 'manufacturers delay' every single time we ordered. Several times I've called the order in and it just wasn't even placed, the staffs response is always completely lackadaisical. Wild when you try and support a local place for two years and they still find a way to fumble the ball so much. The nail in the coffin came when I saw a social media post related to this place I totally disagreed with. NO IDEA how this place is 4.5 on google.

I went here with my sons class (kindergarten and younger). One of the teachers knows the owner so he allowed the class to come in and provided us with an informational session. My 3 yrs old son needed to use the restroom so I asked the owner if he had a restroom we could use. I was appalled by his response, he said "yes, but it is not a public restroom, so we could not use it." So he then proceeded to suggest that I find somewhere else outside in 20 degree weather for my 3 year old to use the restroom. The friend/teacher suggested terry's across the street. So I had to cross busy Broad Street to terry's, when I got there I asked the pharmacist if I could use the restroom, he said "its not for public use," but then said "if it is for the child that is okay," and directed me to the restroom. If you are going to allow children to come to your store consider letting them use your restroom or provide an alternative. I was really excited about this place and was even going to purchase stuff. But after dealing with an inconsiderate owner this will be my only and last time here. P.S. to the owner, you have children too. How would that make you feel if it happened to you? Edit: I spoke with the owner over the phone. I added 1 star to make this a two star review and edited the review to reflect the owners and my conversation. The original review said the class was invited but the owner told me this was not true, that we were "allowed" to come in.

I come here regularly. The staff is a bit on the younger side but I've never had any issues or concerns. Their reptile selection leaves a bit to be desired but I will take their welcoming atmosphere over Petco's corporate approach any day of the week

Many years ago I purchased a cat carrier..And it looks like brand new! My Ninja is 16lbs and 12years old and is very comfy in it..I found the staff to be personable friendly yet professional.
