    As you may have heard it looks like DFS/Live Aquaria is majorly downsizing. Here's an old thread when Petco first took over for nostalgia/anger.

    Anybody buying anything from the Drs. Foster and Smith website now that they're closing? Wondering if they have any good sales worth looking at.

    I do remember before Petco took over DFS was the biggest employer in the Rhinelander area with over 600 employees but now it said I think around 260 would lose their jobs so Petco had already slowly downsized , its a shame but that’s how big business works by gobbleing up the competition.
