Fish Tales Pet Shop
Linda Hooker is proud of the happy pets and helpful staff at Fish Tales Pet Shop. Hooker and Fish Tales Pet Shop have been a tradition in southern Illinois for more than 20 years, as a top store for pets and pet supplies. They have been in their bigger and better facility in Energy, Ill, for over year now and they are the largest locally owned pet shop in southern Illinois. “We’ve got more room and now offer hydrosurge technology for grooming,’ she said. ‘It offers deep cleaning and massage.”
Hooker attributes the store’s success to her experienced staff and staying locally focused. They’ve heard every question from what to feed a lizard to caring for hamster babies and more. “We know these things,” Hooker said. “We have the experience to help our customers out.” That tradition of helping brings the customers back. “We’re not a chain, we’re locally owned,” she said. “That means we care more about people and their pets.”
Hooker and her staff are serious about customer service. “It’s not just a job and we’re not just employees; we’re neighbors and friends,” she said. The friendly staff enjoys helping customers find new “friends” of their own, including dogs, cats, fresh and saltwater fish, hamsters, guinea pigs, bunnies, birds, reptiles and more. “We treat every pet with the utmost love and consideration, from the littlest mouse to the biggest puppy,” said Hooker. “We care about people and their pets.” Hooker and the Fish Tales staff are proud of their tradition of service and their new location.
