For years, I’ve gone to Companions, a pet store on U Street NW. Today I went there to get aquatic plants for my fish.
I am no longer a guppy dad, but I still need to replenish my tank with greenery. And today I went home empty handed.
Companions is now closed. Gone. A storefront completely empty. I didn’t even see a “going out of business sale”, though I am not surprised.
Their service was slow, selection poor, and their fish died often. Still, they were local and I tried to support them. Now, there is no need.
There is still a need for pet supplies in DC. My fish have a naked tank. Any suggestions for Metro-accessible alternatives?
