About Our Store

We've been here in Black Mountain for since 2008. Although we began
as a tropical fish store, we quickly realized that the real need for the community is a place that sells quality food and other supplies for
the growing number of household pets. Today, we carry the best
food and all of the things you need to take care of your pet.

Chip and Eleanor for About Us Page.jpg


Chip opened Blue Ridge Reef and Pet in 2007 with the hopes of offering sustainably produced tank-raised fish, corals, and plants for the ethical aquarium keeper. It quickly became evident that what the Black Mountain community needed was quality food and supplies for household pets, particularly dogs and cats. Today there are no longer fish and other living things in the store, though aquarium keeping will always be his hobby. Chip lives in Black Mountain with Christine; their cat, Jack; and their dog, Eleanor.

~In Memoriam~


Jeanne was an experienced beekeeper and had a rescue pit bull named Hank. She was a huge supporter of the store since the beginning and was definitely a customer favorite. The store wouldn't be here today if not for her contributions. She is sorely missed by family, friends, and customers, but she is never forgotten.
