New shop for the bird enthusiast in Concord

Chris Weaver is the franchisee for the Wild Birds Unlimited store in Brinton Lake. The store is open seven days per week and offers higher end bird seed.

Wild Birds Unlimited is now open in the Shoppes at Brinton Lake. The shop, which specializes in supplying feed and feeders for bird enthusiasts, is located in the upper part of the center, between Cardinal Camera and the office of state Sen. Tom Killion.

Wild Birds Unlimited is a franchise with more than 300 outlets, according to Chris Weaver, the franchise holder for the Concord Township shop.

Weaver said his shop is somewhat high end, aiming for the more affluent clientele. While there are some apartment dwellers who like feeding birds, the hobby is geared more toward people who have larger yards.

“This particular franchise focuses on higher end seeds and feeders, so we cater to more affluent people,” he said. “By and large, most of our customers are people who own property.”

What separates higher-end birdseed from what is available at hardware stores is the amount of filler. Weaver said his seed has no filler so all the feed gets used.

Weaver said the most popular seed is the black oiled sunflower seed, but he carries blends that are tailored to regions for specific bird species. Most of the blends have the black sunflower seeds, but others will include peanuts, other seeds, and even some millet for the ground feeding birds.

Seed prices range from $20 to $45 for a 20-pound bag, but they also sell smaller sizes for some blends.

Feeders and stands range in price from $10 to $200, Weaver said.

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
