Yakima Tropical Fish & Pet Village originally opened in 1969 by Mel and Jackie Russell in Yakima, Washington. When the couple retired in 1991, long time store clerk of 15 years, Joan, bought the store and continued its local legacy. Shortly after the purchase, Joan moved the store from its 650 square foot, rental building to its current larger location. Yakima Tropical Fish & Pet Village has been a fan favorite of the community for the past 46 years. If you find yourself in the area, make sure to stop by and see what they have to offer!
