    lots of expired items on the shelves, dirty floors and not the most knowledgeable employees. went to the garland rd store – nice selection but pet supplies plus is closer and comparable.

    I go to Pet Supplies Plus, which is only a block away – very nice staff and huge selection.  Only time I tried to get something at Canine Commissary they couldn’t get the item I needed.

  • Lakewoodhobo, Jos. A. Bank is already open between Canine Commissary and the bank; I believe Bank took over space that the bank “gave back” to the property owner when the bank space shrunk. Given that the Abrams/Gaston shopping area appears to be picking up new retailers, and given that Hillside Village has done a great job of “re-tenanting” that center, it will be interesting to see how the Commissary space is eventually developed.

    Wasn’t Jos. A Bank taking over the Mockingbird Canine Commissary?

    This saddens me. I could always find brands there that were unavailable elsewhere, and the staff was always friendly & helpful. Bummer.

    Shutting down two stores out of three can’t be a good sign. I wonder if they regret leaving their old Greenville Avenue location.
