PostSubject: VA Fish Shop List    Fri Jan 04, 2013 6:29 pm

Hello from Raleigh NC. I am printing off posters for the Raleigh Aquar Soc "Carolina Aquarium Workshop" (Feb 15-16-17, 2013) to send to major fish shops within a 4-hr drive from Raleigh. I compiled these addresses below from your "Central VA" and "Tidewater VA" subforums, and would appreciate if you folks who shop at these stores could confirm that they still exist at the address listed, and cater to freshwater hobbyists. I'm leaving out the big-box chains (who generally wont post club announcements), salt-only shops, and "beginner" shops whose customers are less likely to travel to an out-of-town aquarium conference. Are there any other "important" shops (fish-nerd magnets) that I'm missing? How about noteworthy shops in or near Charlottesville, Lynchburg, Roanoke, Danville ... ?? Thanks for your help, and I hope to see lots of you in Raleigh in six weeks.

Hi, Gerald. For Central Virginia, I've visited and shopped at Skoolz, PAW, Fin&Feather, Azalea, and Driftwood in the past recent months and all locations were correct and up and running on the occasion. No one knows what might happen overnight; many a good store has disappeared quickly.

Your Raleigh friends would not be disappointed at either Azalea Aquariums or Pet and Aquatics Warehouse (PAW), my two favorites. Both trips are very much worth making.
Very Happy

I can confirm all the Tidewater stores are up and running besides

and

I have never been to them so I can not say if they are open or not. As for the other 4, they are open and still in business, I work at one of them. Hope this helps, Maybe kool-aid can confirm the other 2 for us since he lives near them.

Never been there, but Fish World in Richmond's website says they are salt only....maybe that's changed.
