Opposed to what the previous poster said I'd say that this is a nice store. Sure there's a little dirt but it's a pet store in Alaska for gods sake. Anyone who lives in Alaska should understand that as well as the high prices. Even our walmart is more expensive than the ones in the states. The aquariums are clean and the algae found in the tanks is the "good" kind of algae which comes from good nutrients in the water and the lighting. They wouldn't want the algae eating fish to die now would they? This pet store does not use cedar bedding because they know that it causes respiratory problems in rodents. Last I looked they had at most 5 birds to a cage if there was more than one and about 20 cages.
