I haven't gone to this one before but I have a dells just twenty minutes from me. The building and people are nice but they don't exactly know much about animals, mostly rabbits as far as I know.
Pros: Nice building
Cons: Not very smart about animals

Del's Feed and Farm Supply in Auburn, WA
posted 8 years ago
I've shopped at Del's for several years now, buying most of my animal food and much of the supplies we use there. The new location on West Valley Highway is easy to get to and simple to find, which is a huge improvement over their old downtown location. The buildings are brand new and very clean.
The customer service has been great since I started shopping there. The merchandise has changed focus over the same time period, there is less farm stuff and more pet related products over the last several years. However, they keep their horse and larger animal supplies, and have things like over the counter antibiotics and hyperdermic syringes that you simply can not buy at normal pet stores. They also have the livestock and poultry specific items that you simply can't find in most suburbs.
For the most part, the staff is knowledgable, but Nikky, the manager, is really the person you want to go to when you have a question. Some of the other girls are pretty knowledgable, and can get things done, but some of the newer girls (counter workers) are a little on the slow side. Don't base them on age - some of the younger women know their stuff and can help you out while the old lady who they recently hired to run the register is pretty worthless. The guys who work in the barn/wherehouse are as dumb as posts for the most part, but friendly and will load you up quickly. You don't need brains to load bales of straw and bags of feed.
Prices are better (less) than most of the commercial pet stores like Petco and Petsmart. When TSC (Tractor Supply Company) purchased them a few years ago, I was worried that their service would turn to crap and their merchandise would become the same junk everyone else carries. Wrong on both counts, they have kept most of the same staff and actually expanded their selection while keeping most of the relevent stuff they have always carried. The do carry more of the cutsie crap than they used to, but not so much to be overwhelming.
As far as their feeds go, the quality is pretty good - I suspect that they are getting a custom run from the Purina mill in Lakewood, but am not sure of that. They do carry or can order the full line of Purina products, so thinks like the Mazuri Waterfowl are available on special order.
Pros: Nice, clean, fast and friendly service
Cons: Changed since they were bought by Tractor Supply Co.
