News From Wells Brothers Pet, Lawn & Garden Supply
October is a busy time of year. The state fair is in full swing, football season is going strong and the weather has finally dipped below 100! It's a great time to live in Texas! Nothing says fall like pumpkins and our pumpkin porch is up and running. This year we are offering pumpkins of all sizes as well as gourds and straw. Stop by and get ready for fall! 

October is the last month for the free dog and cat dip. Take advantage of this service before it's gone for another year. 

For those of you who attended our bulb seminar in August, your bulbs will be ready for pick up on October 12. Check our calendar for a complete list of happening, dates and times.
