Best Pet Store - 2000
B&B Pet Supplies
Now that Sammy's has gone the way of the chains (it's become a Petco), it's even more important to support your local pet store. B&B, last year's winner in this category, retains the title, with seemingly an even wider selection of food, pet care products, accessories, and toys (edible and otherwise) for the nonhuman companion in your life, besides unbeatable prices. Order online, you say? Yes, you can get food cheaper via the Web -- but you have to pay shipping, and then you have all of that packing material to recycle. Also, the online pet retailers visited by this writer had too narrow a selection in the biscuits department. So go the extra mile to visit B&B -- your pet, and your pocketbook, will thank you.
