Are you territorial / exclusive with the pet store you patronize?

Now you're just being coy.
No. I don't patronize pet stores very often, but when I do, I'll go to the one that happens to be closest to the other errands I'm running.
Not really - I tend to go to the one that is closest to my house or my work out of convenience. One of those is a great local shop, one is a chain. I go to other ones if I'm running errands and it is more convenient.
Nope. Chewy.com, Amazon, local pets stores ... whatever is most convenient or has the best deal when I need something.
Reason I ask is we went to pick up a specific fish tank filter and the clerk was like, "Oh, we don't sell THAT brand", and literally said "that's the C O M P E T I T I O N's" instead of the using the actual store name like a normal human being. So now I just assume the two main pet chains in town have Sharks vs Jets style knife fights at night in back alleys complete with choreography.
^ I want this to be a thing that happens! maybe not the knives part, but def back alley dance battles for the local pet store market.
