Pet supply shop allows government workers to buy now, pay later during shutdown

CARBONDALE, Illinois (WSIL) — A Carbondale pet shop lends some assistance to pet owners who are going without pay during the shutdown.

Pure Pet in Carbondale is letting customers buy pet food and pay them once the shutdown ends. All you need is a federal work ID.

Manager Florentina Glodde said they’re looking out for customers who are going through a tough time.

“We want to give back. We want to least give you a little bit of relief,” Glodde said. “We know it can be extremely tricky. We’ve had some customers that are already just having a really hard time and we just really want to help out and make it easier on them and we just don’t want our pets to be affected by it as well.”

Glodde said the promotion only applies to food and if you’re a new customer, you will need to write them a check for the amount the food costs.

Pure Pet won’t cash it until after they’ve contacted you.
