If you wanted a pure-bred puppy in 1974, you had to look no further than the Sunvalley Pet Shop in the Sunvalley Mall in Concord.
They had American Eskimo and Brittany puppies for $50 & $60, and also had full-bred Dobermans, Beagles, Irish Setters, German Shepherds, and Cocker Spaniels.
They claimed to have been able to get any AKC breed.
They eventually closed in the early 1990s.
The pet store was on the lower level. Bonus points to those who can tell us exactly where it was located.
