Barnes Supply Co. is a real gem of Durham. They have a fantastic range of products, and are one of a handful of stores in the area that carry Victor dog food. There's parking in the back, and they make it so easy to get in and out. I can simply tell them at the register the brand and type of food I want, pay, and grab it on the way out, rather than lugging a 40lb bag up and down the store. They also offer to take it to your car if you'd prefer. The staff is always friendly and helpful.

I've been to Barnes many times for gardening needs, and I found myself there this morning in need of a leash for my cat - with said cat in tow, due to an unfortunate series of events. They not only welcomed her in, they very kindly helped me put it on her in the store and test it out. When we got to the door, she got spooked and bolted, wrangling out of the leash and causing havok along the way. They really went above and beyond to help me calm her down. All-around knowledgeable people who clearly care a lot! [Side note, for fellow cat newbies: never try to put your cat on a leash for the first time outside of the comfort of your own home.]

Great selection of dog and cat food. I buy my cat food here and it's cheaper than on chewy. Lots of foods can be found that they don't sell at Petco etc.

I love this store! I come here often because I live within walking distance and really I'd still come here if I moved further away. I have two dogs a small garden and have always been really happy with what I've gotten here for both. They have a great, varied and high quality selection. The staff is always kind, honest and helpful. The store is fun to be in, great atmosphere, great community, a lot of great great things.

I am a animal person. I have many pets, I am a gardener, and a chicken keeper. Barnes has been there for me in every way. It is a one stop shop for everything I need. Highly recommend.

Excellent customer service! We went in to look for a vegetable fertilizer for our home garden and we were offered excellent advice and options. They have a wonderful selection of garden materials, potting supplies and pet food/accessories/toys. This is a great "go-to" local spot for us. Please stop by and support this great local resource.

Love, love, love this place. Tons of options for your pets. Toys, leashes, food, treats, etc. Then cute indoor plants, cute outdoor yard decor, seeds for birds; they've got it. For me, it's everything. Even the staff are welcoming and offer assistance.

I like buying dog food and treats here. There is a frequent buyers program for most dog foods they sell. And I never had that as an option at any other pet supply store. You can also find anything you could need for your garden. They are also pet friendly. So take your dog and let them pick from the specialty treats and chews.

We love Barnes! Our great local pet and garden store. I often take our pup there for a mini-adventure to get out of the house. The staff is SO kind and helpful, and always happily greets our pup with a treat. The quality of their products is really top notch. I get my seedlings there in the spring. Their basil plants in particular are some of the best basil I've ever grown. The selection of dog treats and foods are excellent and there are many great options for wholesome single-ingredient treats and chews. The garden section is excellent as well. Very high quality products and helpful staff. I love the hummingbird feeder and the wind chime I bought there. The staff was so helpful assisting me in choosing a spray for my tomato plants when they had aphids. We love Barnes!

Local place, great prices, and great selection, especially because our dog needs fish-based food and treats.

Great store and great service! I made a purchase online, drove to the back of the store and the items were loaded in my car for me. Convenient and great service! Barnes had the items I needed that other stores including big box did not have.

I love that Barnes Supply is still thriving in even these challenging times. This area used to be my neighborhood, so I would frequent it much more often, but recently my brother's dog (who can make short work of most bones) neeeded a replacement. I've always gone to Barnes for her bones in the past. When most standard bones are destroyed in less than a day, the bones I get at Barnes somehow seem to endure for up to a year. She is understandably shy about committing to a new unfamiliar bone (even a great one), but she's ALL IN in less than an hour and guards and plays keep away with equal vigor. That's a GREAT bone!!! They have everything for multiple pets and birds and the store itself is an adventure! Thanks guys for being there for me and others and particularly for my brother's dog Daisy! billy shepherd Oh..I almost forgot to mention...they are also one of the best garden centers around! Plants, amendments, garden decor..the WORKS! 😉

I love this place. One of few if not only place in down town Durham that carries everything you need for you chicken owner needs. From local feed to mid and high-end brands such as Purina. It even sells hay! It has everything you need for your cats and dogs too but chickens is speciality and I am living in the city and not driving a car very glad I can pop in any time if run out of feed get the feed and take Uber back. Most of stores like this never located this central thus it is wonderful to have the option for an "urban farmer". Hope they stay in business for many more years.

The folks at Barnes Supply are super friendly & helpful. It is a family-run business that offers all kinds of dog & cat food, gardening supplies & fun accesories, straw, and livestock & poultry feeds and accessories. My husband & I have purchased from Barnes Supply in the same store on Ninth St. for about 30 years, during which ownership changed hands to the current family. Under their guidance & imagination, the store continues to improve every year and will continue to have my loyalty and business for all of my pets & farm.

Great local business! Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Christine gave me helpful guidance on dog supplies and training. She didn't push me for a sale, nor did she totally dismiss my needs. And the prices were better than I expected. Huge selection of dog supplies. Definitely going back soon!
