Are you kidding me ? Heights Pet Center closed up ? My best friend and mentor used to work there after he retired from the Navy. Do you remember Greg ? Ron and Patty ran a great pet shop and then they turned it over to their son a few years back , or so I heard. I’m out past 32nd Street West so I never get out to the Heights anymore. Ron was the go to guy for reef and marine. If they’re closed then that’s a great loss.Yes it is. I used to buy my fish/herp stuff from Heights Pet Center, and was totally bummed they were closed when I started looking for fish/plants again. Thank goodness for TS. I hope they're open and thriving for a long time (idiot drivers and burglars notwithstanding).
I hadn't thought about The Tropical Shop in a long time...wow. Blast from the past!
Yeah, I hope the drunks can keep from running through the walls at Treasure State from now on. That guy has an amazing shop and he’s weathered Covid and mayhem and he’s also in the old Bonanza Health Foods building which can’t be cheap. I’ve been keeping fish since 1965 and have seen lots of pet shops come and go here in Billings and Treasure State is the best ever hands down.
Do you remember that Ben had two locations for the Tropical Shop ? First he was down on 8th and Grand by the Holiday and then moved up to 13th and Grand. I wonder whatever happened to Terry that worked there ? I think I heard he passed away but he was pretty young.
