Local Pick UP

Local pick is available by appointment at the New Spring Garden Township Municipal Building parking area, 340 Tri Hill Road, York, PA 17403.

All customers doing a local pickup from these areas will need to wear a mask when doing the transaction at the parking area. 

 I must meet you at the Spring Garden Township Municipal Building, located at 340 Tri-Hill Road, York, PA 17403

Local Township Rules do not allow customers to come to my physical location. One violation could put me out of business with a $1,000 fine and or result in the removal of my license to operate. Please order your local pick-up fish online at least one business day in advance so we can arrange for a local pick-up at a time that works for both you and me. 

Local pickups can be done as "cash on delivery" (preferred when possible) or by payment using Master Card or Visa through our secure payment processing partner (Authorized.net) or Pay Pal.  Credit card payments require a $25.00 minimum amount. 

If you do not show up, there will be a $1.00 per fish re-bagging fee accessed for a pickup at another time and a 50% fish total fee accessed for a no-show without setting up a new pickup. If you choose to pay by cash, this fee will be sent to you by an invoice to pay. Failure to pay a no-show 50% fee will result in the removal of your account from the website.  

The maximum time I will wait at the pickup site for a late customer is 15 minutes.  

My wife is bettong better. For now, Local pick-ups are primarily limited to days and times when she has a visiting angel.  I may be able to do a quick local pickup at additional times from those listed below.  Check with me by email first. 

Local Pickups (choose "Local Pickup - PA" during checkout) are normally done at one of the below agreed-upon times:

Normal pickup days are: (Weather Permitting)

Monday between 12:00 and 2:00 pm. (Unless I have to ship fish by SWA Cargo that day) 

Tue: between 12:00 and 1:00 pm.  (No local pickups on Tuesday when new fish are arriving or if I am Shipping by SWA Cargo that day 

Friday between 12:00 and 2:30 pm. 

Saturday: between 12:00 and 2:00 every other week when the Angel works  Due to the Easter Holiday and a personal commitment, the next time the Angel works on Saturday is not until April 24. Hopefully, my wife will be better before then. 

Hours on the website are general hours when I try to answer the phone or emails when I am not packing fish, doing tank cleanings, fish count checks, shipping, or meeting other customers. The best way to get me is by sending an email to support@cichlidsarespecial.com 

Local pickups need to be arranged at least 24 hours in advance. I need time to plan around cleanings, etc, so I pack the fish for your order in a timely manner. If you are 15 minutes early or running 15 minutes late, please call 717-843-7650.
