Meijer

I went to Meijer last night to get some air bubblers for my tanks and noticed that not one single snail was alive. They were all EMPTY! :angry:

whenever I go to a big pet store I find them, too. It seems like getting snails at these stores is basically rescuing them.

I hope you reported them. Our Meijer surprisingly has a pretty good fish section. They don't carry snails very often, but the fish tanks always look healthy, and the older guy who works the department seems knowledgeable. Now, our Petsmart is a different story. :angry:

I rescued one at Meijer last year and it was in pretty bad shape. Poor little guy lived about 6 months and was always tiny. I think his growth was stunted from lack of food or calcium.

I think I am going to just stop strolling by the pet section all together. It's so sad. Poor snails.

If you report the store do they really do anything from your experience? I'm jut wondering if it will fall on deaf ears. I will certainly tell them about it no doubt.

I don't know about Meijer, but I once reported our Petsmart to the corporate office. They did forward my complaint to the local store, and the manager eventually responded by email with a somewhat genuine reply.

It can't hurt to try!
