2 days is nothing for a new fish, they're just getting settled in. I usually don't feed new fish for a day, and feed lightly for the first week. If it goes for a few more days try the same treatment, though I wouldn't go as high with the temperature, maybe 86F tops.
Expecting quality from PetSmart is like expecting fine cuisine from McDonalds. Like most anything else in life you get what you pay for.
