Well now anyone from here could talk to him and ask if they could purchase the store and continue it... *before he liquidates his assets by selling all of the tanks/filters/food ect.* Let's keep one of the good LFS's up!

OH NO! That's depressing. I've been in this hobby for more years than I care to remember, and one by one I've seen my favorite mom and pop pet stores close. I'll certainly miss Wins.

Ya, sadly they are closing. They both are tired and want to travel a little bit and enjoy life.

Regarding Win, are the owners handing it down to anyone? Or are they seriously closing up shop??

Sad if they're closing because, overall, Win (when considering prices & selection) has to be the best LFS in manhattan.

Pearling.....it's way overrated.

I saw a few tanks with no stock so I feel like they're choosing to close

or ready to be restocked soon. He usually waits for tank space before ordering more livestock. June is quite a long ways away...

I for one wouldn't mind volunteering at Win if they ever need it the assistance. If anyone knows the owners, certainly pass this on to them.
