I lucked out with the PetLand near me. One of the guys who works in the fish department is very knowledgeable, and tries his best to care for the fish while he's there. His main specialty seems to be Koi and plants, but he's really good about other fish too.
He does have a Betta set up at home. A 5 gallon I think. He said Bettas do much better in larger tanks than the Zen Garden tanks that are frequently sold at the store.
I also second a letter to the Store Manager. If not the Store Manager, perhaps the General Manager. It's always good to list where you get the information from too, that way people can look it up if they wish, and gives your letter a little more weight.

I might have to complain about my local petco too. Their betta's especially the girls are so small they could still be considered fry.

(Maka is still small and a little small but she dwarfed a little CT girl who was barly moving.) Poor things I doubt would ever be able to eat betta pellets when they should be eating egg yolk and fry food still...

It's a shame that some people think it's funny to hear the proper information instead of take in the knowledge to make their performance much better. I don't believe that correcting an employee at a store is wrong at all. If I was the employee I'd listen very closely and make sure to ask questions to improve the care of the fish.
