Sad Day's

The old man is finally letting the fish store close. His goal retirement! Don't disagree with the decision just wish the small businesses had a better than average span of life again. For those who were unaware our family has owned A Wet Pet in apple valley MN for over 27 yes.
Have spent many a year in there working and growing up. Come down to k-bid finishing up the process. They took pics today and should be up and selling soon.
Sad days amongst the family thanks for listening. The Ipsens

Hey man

Sorry to hear that. I worked in a pet store for awhile, then they got bought out by a big national chain that didn't give a crap about or know anything about fish. If you can imagine a know-nothing boss trying to tell ME that I'm wrong about fish. I always bought from the little stores that knew what they were doing. I never made it down to A Wet Pet, too far away, but I always heard great things. Anything I can do, let me know.

Whats the old man going to do

Whats the old man going to do now to keep him busy?  Sucks to see a cornerstone of the community closing down.  I bought a lot of set-ups and supplies from there over the years and will miss the place for sure.  I been going there since I was a kid.  And its where I met you, Mr Mongrel.  Best of luck to senior Ipsen in his retirement!
