    Those chain stores are no better than small business. In fact they are very good at closing down the small guy. They hire junior staff to $ave, most of time they have no idea about what they're selling. Ppl come in with a question nobody can help them. The small guys might be a little dearer with their prices, and/or not as big in stock range but they often know what they are doing and can help you set up anything for any pet.

    Actually the PGD that I go to has mature workers mainly - 2 ex vet nurses, 1 trainee who is never on alone and 1 mature lady who has working kelpies. I've always found them very useful. I think it depends on where you go.

    Pet Goods Direct is the only large pet goods store we have. I sometimes go to the Pet & Aquarium Store over near Spotlight but thats about it. I don't think there is anything else unless we go to Brisbane!
