Okay it isn’t really called Pet Market but what else should I call it? Just across the goldfish market is a little more variety than the ubiquitous gold fish that is found in this street. And likewise, the pets stores here tend to cluster together making it quite easy for visitors to shop and compare prices. I guess that really benefits the consumer at lot. However, to the detriment of the stores, competition is really very fierce here.
If one has been to local apartments here in Hong Kong, you should know that apartments here very tiny. So tiny that some flats can only be called rooms since they appear to be just large rooms when in fact it is already a whole flat. As a result, Hong Kong residents can only afford to get small pets during to apartment size considerations. The pets stores along this row sell mostly small animals like rabbits, guinea pigs, mice and others. Obviously, goldfish rank up there since they are relatively low maintenance. This is not to say that Hong Kong doesn’t have dogs, of course they do, it is just that only the people who have the room to spare can afford to keep them in the house.
