In whitman (rt 18) across the street from where Kings Castle Land used to be.
They have their own greenhouse(s), lots of plants and fish. I will also say they know their stuff!

No Way. The Pond Plants Are Outside. Go Inside. They Have Over 50 Tanks Of Freshwater Plants And Fish. Rainbows, Tetras, Neons, Oscars, Cichlids. They Prob Have Over A Hundred Tanks. I Think It Would Be A Good Idea To Check Them Out.

bmed, they have a nice selection of hard to find floating plants,
and a pretty average selection of oxygenating plants. I'm sure
the store looks pretty, but it's not much to get excited about if
you are out of town and need to buy your FW plants online.
they don't sell any live aquarium fish online mail order either.
since they charge $7.50 to pick and pack, plus actual 2-3 day
shipping, it's actually more than the flat $10 I pay from many
Florida based plant resellers. thanks for the link as I may do
an open top tank one day and need some interesting floaters.

I thought the purpose of this thread was for stores in mass? Not stores to ship to nyc. I believe they do have a good selection. I see all the plants in there, that, most people on this site talk about.

I was less than impressed with this store. Apparently it is better during spring and summer. The owner is nice, knowledgeable, and helpful. The best fish were in their not-for-sale display tanks. The selection (all fresh) of fish was typical, nothing out of the ordinary. They did have some nice, and fairly cheap, congo tetras, but the tank looked messy, as do all of the tanks, so I refrained from purchasing anything. I hear that they are wonderful for ponds, though.
