Auburn CountryMax

Opening in April 2024 across the way from Bass Pro Shops, the Auburn CountryMax is easy to find on Rts. 5 & 20. Just to the west of Auburn (technically in the historic farming town of Aurelius), CountryMax is convenient to pet-owners, wild bird fans and lawn-and-garden enthusiasts in Auburn, around Owasco Lake, up to Weedsport, down to Moravia and over to nearby Skaneateles.

Most recently, this site was home to an Aldi’s grocery store. The CountryMax construction team nearly doubled the square footage and now it’s our largest store at 24,000-square-feet.


Features include a dog wash, homestead lodge, climate-controlled small animal rooms with an interactive display table kids will love, plus a fascinating fish room and much more. Only at our Auburn store will you find a dedicated Pet Rescue area, where local shelters can bring dogs and other animals for meet-and-greet adoption events.

Auburn also features a complete nursery for all your lawn and garden needs. They even have an active chicken coop in the nursery area, with hens laying eggs throughout the year. What other store has that?

Wild bird fans will love the vast selection of seeds, suet and feeders in the The Wild Bird Market. Dog and pet owners will find all the top food brands, treats and toy…at lower-than-internet prices. In fact, bring your dog in (on a leash) for a free dog biscuit.

Ask about holding your child’s (or pet’s) birthday party in our roomy event space. We also host master gardener seminars, homesteading presentations, even goat yoga!

Stop in to discover what today’s neighborhood country store has for you.

Uniquely helpful
Auburn, like all CountryMax Stores, takes a real pride in not being the big-box retailer when it comes to customer service. Need help deciding which dog food is best for your fickle Yorkie? Which cat toy Mittens would like most? An organic solution to a gardening problem? Which bird seed for the specific birds you are trying to attract? Ask us. We know (and if we don't, we'll find out). We carry out all heavy bags/awkward sized purchases without question – it’s not an added service, it is our service. Family-owned and super-friendly, we are your neighborhood country store. See us today!
