Looking for an awesome locally owned pet shop that covers everything from dogs and cats to fish and rodents and reptiles?
I went to J&M Aquatics and Pet Center seeking out a new dog food option for the Exploreblog.net mascot, Tali, and found a whole new world of pets and pet supplies that I hadn’t imagined existed in Grand Junction.
J&M Aquatics and Pet Center is located at the southeast corner of North Avenue and 28-1/2 road. With a big sign out front, it’s easy to spot. Plus, there’s plenty of parking.
The Offerings at J&M Aquatics and Pet Center
Dog Food and Supplies. Since I went seeking out dog food, I’ll start with it. Not only does J&M have more brands of dog food than I’ve ever seen in a locally owned pet store, but they’ve got great depth within the brands. I found grain-free options and other foods that I didn’t previously know existed.
J&M also features several areas full of bins of dog treats and teeth cleaning treats.
Plenty of Options for Cats, too. Not just for dog lovers, J&M offered a large selection of food, toys, and other options for cats, as well. We even saw some cats on-site for adoption.
Fish and Fish Supplies. With “aquatics” in the name, you’d guess J&M has plenty of fish offerings…and it does.
I was impressed with the variety of fish offered by J&M. In addition to fish, the store offers al the supplies you need to take care of fish and aquariums. Plus…
Other animals. If you’re looking for a different kind of pet, J&M has plenty of options. There are reptiles, spiders, rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, and more.
Plus, I’ve never seen a more complete selection of terrariums and habitats for all different kinds of animals.
At the end of my visit, I stopped by the counter to ask about dog food. Tali has been experiencing some kidney issues, and I’ve been looking for a kidney-friendly dog food. I was pleasantly surprised by the wealth of information offered by the person at the cash register. She took time to listen and offer information and solutions. This is the kind of customer service that makes a locally owned store so awesome. Thanks, J&M!
Not only have I found a new pet store for all of Tali’s needs, but Cole is now working to convince me that we need more pets. Great store!
