What to do on a Saturday morning? Visit The Animal Store, of course! One of the great joys we have being a real neighborhood pet store is when families come to visit — to meet the animals face to face; to learn something new; to ask questions; or just to have fun. Families come from all over the Chicago area to visit our “Who Knew? Zoo” because there’s always something new to see.

This fine day, we were visited by The Animal Store friends Maibelyn and Weston (who also brought their parents). Brother and sister checked out every nook and cranny of the shop. Weston was fascinated by the birds, some of which were just at his eye level. Maibel, on the other hand, loved the colors and movement in our vibrant fish department. In fact, they found some fish to add to their backyard Koi pond and sent us this awesome picture.

So the next time you’re looking for something to do — maybe a small incentive to get the little folks in your life through a boring morning of errands — stop by and say hi. Our staff is always eager for a visit from The Animal Store friends.
