Before I was 20, I opened up my first pet store in the city's Yonge and Steeles Area. Soon after, I expanded the operation from 1,000 to 1,600 square feet and converted it to a fish-only outfit and Big Al's Aquarium Service Warehouse was born".
The reptile department continues to expand and cater to reptile beginners and expert hobbyists alike. Reptile specialist Alex C. is well liked and known by his loyal customers.
