Positive,

Just got my first two scorps from these guys. They are a great store for all your exotic needs and really don't fit under the category of "Pet store." There facilities include a fish room the size of a warehouse, the largest reptile exhibition in the state and entire wall dedicated to inverts. All the staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I definitely recommend them for anybody in the area.

The only thing that surprised me is when I asked them if the 10% Arachnomember discount was effective and they said that they had never heard of this sight! Anyway I told them what we are about and the owner especially was glad to have such information. So it is quite possible that they will discount members in the future. ~ Rex

I am neutral with them. I was a very green tarantuala owner and found the support I recieved as very poor. They do have an excellent store and the history of being one of Milwaukees best pet stores around. The prices are High compared to anywhere I have seen, but the selection is awsome. IF you know what you want and dont rely on the info they give you than I say it is great. Again not bashing it, just simply saying that I think the staff is a little quick to sell you and item without understanding your needs or expectations. It is the staff in general not just one individual. I have been a customer of theirs for Fish and reptiles for over 20 years.

I got my first T there, which I won't do again, just because of the prices and the dealers I have found since joining. (I'm ordering my next invert from Ken.) I paid $75 for my 2 inch B. smithi. They did however give me a dozen starter crickets for free with my purchase. I will most definitely be going back for any reptile needs I may have in the future.

I'm laughing at this post. I have sent e-mails to hoffers multiple times and have NEVER gotten a response....not once. I actually assumed they didn't even carry t's. Found Gary's pet Jungle in Milwaukee and although its tiny, they have decent selection and prices that rival or beat most dealers. I got a 1.5 B. smithi there for 19.99. Gonna have to check out hoffers....again I guess.

Thanks for that post Cold Blood... I just gave Gary's a call and will be stopping this weekend.
