The store showcases multiple custom-built, wood-themed interior elements reflecting local history, as well as climate-controlled small pet rooms, a ship aquarium room, and over 2,000 square feet of premium, healthy foods for dogs, cats, and pets of all shapes and sizes. In addition to the massive selection of healthy pet options, the new location boasts a large selection of barn and stable feed and supplies, as well as an expansive lawn and garden offering for all seasons. Additional features include “Fort Scrub House” self-serve dog wash, special events room with an indoor/outdoor stall, and a custom-built wood lodge filled with homesteading products, beer, wine, cider, and cheese making kits, housewares, gifts and novelty items.
Now in the their 34th year, CountryMax has grown by being known as the neighborhood store with that can compete with competition both big and small, with prices and selection consumers have come to demand as well as a customer service experience that goes above and beyond traditional expectations of today’s retail stores, such as their full carry-out service for purchases big and small.
“We take great pride in our team crafting a store that showcases our commitment to our customers’ experience at CountryMax. There’s a lot of hard work put in to provide a huge selection of healthy pet food options for pets and animals of all shapes and sizes, but we don’t stop at just putting products on the shelf,” said Brad Payne, Director of Sales. “From the store design elements, to the products on the shelf, to the way we treat our customers, we do our best to show the community that we’re putting them first in everything we do. Oswego is such a unique, vibrant place and really has a lot of very appealing aspects that come together to make it a perfect community for us to join and we’re so excited to finally be able to open our doors.”

Vendors will be on hand, along with experienced CountryMax team members to provide valuable product information, free samples, and demonstrations to benefit customers. Pets are welcome.
