Midway Tropical Fish & Pets
24101 Pacific Highway South, Kent, WA 98032-5020
They had a pretty good selection. However, I later learned that the pet store owner is giving bad advice about raising Ts (for example, recommending bark as a substrate and telling me I should feed my B. boehmei pinkies). If you can't make it to the expos or anything, it's worth a look. Just don't follow anything he says, haha.
TARANTULAS.com will be at the Renton show. As for stores, our parent company Northwest Zoological Supply serves Pacific Northwest pet stores. Our customers that tend to carry tarantulas include A Place For Pets in Burien and Little Amazon at 105th and Aurora in north Seattle near Rivergate.
Call and arrange to stop by TarantulaCages.com (Adam Hundt) near Boeing Field. You can see on his website what he carries. He's a nice guy, I've dealt with him a few times. If you DO, please tell him Jon Olson sent you!
