Since we opened our first store in 1974, we’ve been passionate about helping customers to provide the same level of care for their pets as they would the rest of their family. It’s what inspired us back then. And it’s still what inspires us today. It’s just that now we have eight locations and dozens of dedicated team members who also share our passion.
So what does this all mean for you and your pet? Well, it means that no matter which Tisol store you visit, you can feel confident that you’re doing the very best for your pet – or as we refer to them, ‘the ones you love’.
Apart from having the best selection of premium pet products, what really sets Tisol apart is their expertise. The staff members and management team are, arguably, the most trusted and knowledgable anywhere. You might even call them ‘pet food geeks’…
Tisol has a well-earned reputation for being the nutrition and supply retailer of choice for those not willing to compromise on the health or wellness of their pets.
In the beginning there were two German Shepherds, Tiger and Soloman, and three partners with a passion for providing the same level of care for their pets as they gave the rest of the family.
From that passion and the names of those two dogs (Ti-Sol) came the first Tisol Pet Nutrition & Supply Store. The year was 1974.
Nine locations and 39 years later, Tisol is a local, family-owned and operated business run by Henry (one of the original founders) and Brenda Kozub and their son Russ. A couple of the partners have gone but the name remains and that original passion is now shared by over 75 dedicated Tisol team members.
Once again, Tisol has been awarded first place as ‘Best of Vancouver’ in the category of Pet Supply Stores in The Georgia Straight’s Reader’s Choice Awards.
