I'd quarantine seriously too. In their own Petsmart tanks.

Meaning I'd never buy the fish - they will either die or non-suspecting folk will buy them and quarantine them in their home tanks.

As much as I love you Niko, I think you are all wet on this. (note the aquatic pun, please.)

You certainly can get problems buying from these places. But from where can you buy without risk? Tex Gal has a beautiful school of 40+ cardinals that came from exactly this kind of sale. And we have had numerous bad experiences buying from specialized dealers. That goes for both fauna and flora.

I agree with Tex Guy.
You just need to QT all fish no matter where they are from.
My local PetSmart has very clean tanks and the fish typically look good. Not so much for the livebearers at Petco - always seem unhealthy.
