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 have a great experience every time I go here. Prices are the cheapest around or online and their staff members are super friendly. My pup loves stopping in with me too!

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.]

Nice selection of glazed pottery, plants and soils. Great birding selection also!
