STORE CLOSING: We spoke with the owner of JD's Pet Paradise in Freeport today, (Jeff) and we're sad to report that after 35 years in business, JD's Pet Paradise will be closing its doors by the end of June. Our conversation was rather humbling and we kind of felt this one in the gut. It's not easy talking with the person who started it all, as they reflect on closing it all.
We'll bring you more details about the closing in the coming weeks, but they are offering discounts on some select items right now. Eventually, things such as shelving, racks and other related items will also be available.
If you have a pet, if you know the family or the people who work there, if you shop there, make a point to pay them a visit. If you've never heard of JD's Pet Paradise it's a one of a kind (pet) place in Freeport. Stop by 1715 S. West Avenue. Let's show them some local support. 815-235-3812. ... See MoreSee Less
Oh, this makes me so sad :(. I would have bought from them, but my apartment doesn't even allow fish for pets and I was hoping to buy from them when I move later this year.
I refuse to get my fish from walmart because they don't even take good care of them. Looks like I'll have to go to PetCo or PetSmart in Rockford now when I can get fish.
Spent Lots of time and learned alot at this place.....I also sold some of the bearded dragons I bred to jds.... Jeff and dawn are both amazing people I literally would stand there for a hr just talking and getting to know them..... great customer service and will make sure your taken care of....
Jeff we will miss you and the pets at the store , and we sure will miss all the great people you had working for you. The best to everyone of you.
Wow that’s too bad I think this is where my sister had gotten her hamster as a kid and it’s where Charlotte’s 2nd gold fish came from. They are such great people and were so helpful
I think someone should buy it and move to the mall😊 Would be great fun for all the kids going to the children’s museum!
Does anyone know if the groomer(s) there are going elsewhere? My parents take their dog there and really love it! Bummed to hear of their future closing 💔😕
Hey I just saw this and lost it. In the 80’s I owned an Amazon Double yellow headed parrot named Peter. He sang and had quite the personality. I had to sell him and JD found him a home. Would anyone know if Peter is still alive. Due to my career in radio I had to let him go to s lovely lady who took good care of him. This pet store was the very best of the best.
I took my Cocker Spaniel, Annie, there to be groomed for many years. They always did a great job and were very friendly. Sorry to hear they are closing.
I take my granddaughter here to buy fish. She’s going to miss them. Always friendly and helpful.
As a kid, I loved walking through the room with all the amazing saltwater fish!! And the big parrot was super cool .... and kinda scary!! Wonder if the parrot is still there?
Wow. Another Freeport icon closing its doors 😔
This is awful. This was the only pet store my entire family has ever gone too.
I’m finally at a good place to get a giant fish tank and I was SO looking forward to going to JDs again to get everything I need. This is so heart breaking. We loved everyone who helped us over the years. JDs will be GREATLY missed by many. 😥
This is so sad. My favorite local pet store. Now where will we get crickets and fishes?
This is so very sad and disappointing! Where else can I go for pet supplies and live pets? Please don't say petco,pruces are ungodly and travel with live fish NEVER works! I bought my bunny,and birds from you. And you're my go to for their needs/supplies 😢😢😢
I've always loved shopping there
Truly a big bummer, between there and Wing 'n Things I spent LOTS of hours there growing up. :(
Unfortunately it is a sign of the times, when most people would rather snag what they need while at Walmart or order it direct to their door through online through sites like Chewy. Most pet stores make very little if any money on fish/animals.
I hope something else can come along soon to fill the void.
I just bought a little fish there. 😔
I got Jersey my guinea pig there 2 1/2 years ago. This makes me sad.
The Dog House provides excellent grooming. So sad to see this business close. I have spent many many hours there.
Sad. I use to love taking the kids there when they were little to see all the fish and little animals. And up til 5 years ago (moved and sold all of my fish tanks) I would get lots of fish and dog stuff there. Everyone who worked there were always so nice.
One of my favorite places to go when I lived there growing up and when I came back to visit.
Best dog groomer ever and everyone is always so nice
Very very big loss for Freeport! 😞.
Sorry to say Freeport can’t afford to keep losing businesses
To bad they couldn't find someone to take it over, or learn the trade and start something else very similar that could Supply the area with pet needs
