If you're like me, you go out of your way to avoid big franchise operations, and give your business to independently-owned small businesses. Mark's is one such establishment, conveniently located on the Drive. Open 7 days/wk. Both Mark and chief asst Owen are knowledgeable and friendly. The store is a tight squeeze on any given day - the shop is small and packed to the rafters! - so if you have problems getting to the merchandise they are only too happy to assist. Special orders? No problem! I've been giving them my business for about 3 years now and have nothing but praise for them. Reasonable prices, excellent selection, and first-rate customer service. I give Mark's Pet Stop a big paws up!
