We run a shop in Stanley Market. Every day lots of people pass by our shop. It has too many people walk by and no time for them to shop during the weekend because it is too crowded. Also, the opening hours of most of the shops are 10-6pm. What should we sell to have the best benefits? We tried painting and artwork. There are many people go dating in Stanley. What service we can provide to dating people? I bet on Feb 14 will be the worst business day again.

An attraction on the south side of Hong Kong Island known for its eclectic mix of shops is losing its quaint, breezy charm as vendors struggle with sales despite a record number of visitors last year.

From local souvenirs and shops touting postcards in English and Chinese, to cheap clothes, paintings, and Chinese handicrafts, Stanley Market has long been a tourism hotspot.

But in recent years, shops along its winding streets have had their shutters closed, with some ending up as canvases for graffiti artists. According to property agents, a 900 sq ft space costs HK$65,000 a month to rent.
