Recently in my near-by shopping center, a little aquarium store opened. It surprised me. I mean with all the huge pet stores on every corner... An aquarium store?? I immediately felt sorry for the owner. So far, I've seen no activity at all. During a recession?the nation at it's worst economical state? People out of work?... WHo the heck is buying Fish?? To look at! People are having a difficult enough time buying fish to FEED their starving kids.
We just drove by there again tonight on our way to the pharmacy. My husband started making jokes about the aquarium store. As bad as I've felt I couldn't help laughing too. (he can be very funny) He said let's go in there and ask "how much for 2 lbs. of filet of sole? " They will be happy to have someone walk in even if only to direct us to the seafood store.
Did u ever notice how quickly these little places pop up and then go out? It is so sad. As a former little business owner myself, I so know the pain of that. The dream, the hard work, the expense, the stress! .. and then... BAM... you just can't stay afloat.
well, at least when the aquarium closes up ( we have a bet going, I say 6 mts.) the fish may stay afloat? Or do they end up at the Seafood store on sale for .99 a lb? (always be suspicious of food that goes on sale)
