Claycord Online Museum – The Old Pet Shop Inside The Sunvalley Mall In Concord – Full-Bred Puppies Were Half Off During Veteran’s Day Sale


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.

Kind of where Mrs. Field’s Cookies is, …somewhere around there.

I agree lower level near Macy’s (when it was Capwells). I haven’t been to the mall in years so I am not sure which stores are located in that area.

99% of pet store dogs are from puppy mills.

This is true. I remember our dad taking us to Sun Valley back in those days. We were just kids and visiting the pets was really fun for us. Sadly, I later realized that they were merely dogs that were bred and stuck in cages to make a profit. I have been an advocate for adopting companion animals from shelters ever since.

While no longer a fan of pet stores, our current dogs are rescues, the dog I grew up with came from that shop and I’ll never regret that day. Oh how I loved her. I remember walking out of the shop with her in my arms. It was the best day ever.

Lower level, across from a variety store I’ve forgotten the name of. Ice cream store, next door. Oshmans Sporting goods was at the end. There were conference rooms down the hall and public restrooms where questionable activities happened I worked there for a few years. We used to buy puppies from Rollie Fingers. When people saw him they would all run to the variety store and buy them out of baseballs. He would sign them all. Nice guy. The Leshers bought two dogs there. It was enlarged in 1976-77. My son was in the newspaper when it was remodeled and you entered through a boat. It was an interesting place to work. I enjoyed it for the most part.
