I think I can organize a few things tomorrow. I'll see if I can whip up a flyer tomorrow & post it on the FB page to see what everyone thinks. I'm going to a very large LFS in Norristown, PA this weekend or next. I'll talk to them about it.

That would be good!
I had to pick up some filter media for my 55,I was at Petco and talked to one of the GMs.
He said I could bring fliers up and they would put them in peoples bags,he also said I could set up a table with fliers on it.
As much as I can't stand Petco with their plants and fish,this would be a good chance to educate people about Bettas!
If I can use Petco and Petsmart to my advantage,I will!!!!!
So we are off to a start!

GhostFeather, I love it! Educating people about Bettas at chain stores like Petco is exactly what some people talk about regularly on this forum. They will never stop selling bettas, but we can help by informing people who buy them and maybe educate some of the employees too!

I'm really exited to see what we can all accomplish with this in PA.

I doubt the big stores would let you do anything because obviously they don't want to lead customers away from THEM and THEIR "expertise", but I think more independent stores would go for it. I personally would be excited for something in Western PA!

I didn't have time today to make a flyer at work. :( I'll try again on Monday, but I'm still going to talk to the big LFS that I'm going to this weekend.
