I live a half hour away and have been there many times and have made many purchases; both livestock and dry goods. Keep in mind you can buy anything from their catalog from the store. If they don't have the item in the store, they will get it for you from the warehouse (on Saturdays) or send you to the warehouse to pick it up (weekdays). The livestock is always in great condition and QT'd before sale. Any time I've had a loss, DFS has refunded me....even on delicate/expensive marine fish. The store is small, but worth a visit.
