Martins Pet and Garden Center - 56K Warning!

Hey Indiana! I work at a small locally owned pet store (yes, they do still exist) called Martins Pet and Garden in Elkhart. We specialize in freshwater and saltwater tanks, reptiles, birds and small companion animals, along with a number of gardening and outdoor supplies. This is my shameless plug for the store .

I'll keep this thread updated with our current sales and let you guys know what we have in stock worth mentioning. Here's a few pics:



















If you're in the area, come stop by!

no the martins aquarium i was thinking of was in PA but closed many years ago. it was a sad day when that place closed. it was a really nice store with lots of exotics. i used to go there as a kid. i was hoping they just opened up shop in another state.

Car pooling up there would be a good idea... cut the cost down and gives a chance hang out and get to know each other better.

Lego, we'd probably be getting more stuff from you that from than from the shop. But I'd love to come and check it out.
