Mom-and-pop business 夫妻店、小本生意
    2021-05-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A: How is your sister doing back in your hometown?

B: Just so-so. She’s running a small bookstore, which also sells education-purpose toys. Traditional mom-and-pop businesses nowadays find it difficult to compete with large chain stores, especially big online platforms.

Note: “Mom-and-pop” is a colloquial term used to describe a small, family-owned, or independent business. Mom-and-pop stores are often operations that struggle to compete with more substantial establishments, such as big-box retailers, who generally boast more buying power than smaller players. The term “mom-and-pop” also refers to inexperienced investors who casually play the market.
