Q&A With Stewart Sbordone, Owner of The Fish Bowl Stamford



STEWART SBORDONE
Owner of The Fish Bowl

The Fish Bowl is a beloved Stamford institution. How do you build on its legacy?
The Fish Bowl is legendary for its love for the animals it sells. I’m proud to maintain that reputation, and I am excited to expand on it.  We’ve already dramatically changed and improved upon the fish selection, and the small land animals are getting an overhaul as well. This is The Fish Bowl, just bigger and better.

What sets The Fish Bowl apart from other petkeeping stores?
Our love for animals and our affordability. Caring for the animals is upmost in our minds. We also have some of the best prices around for all our species. We want people to be successful in caring for their pets so we really take the time to get to know our customers and build a relationship with them that means more and lasts beyond a purchase.

Why are you passionate about the work you do?
It takes a special skill to care for any type of animal. I can’t help but love animals, but I can help others fall in love with them too.

What makes Stamford great?
Its adaptability. We’re always on the hunt for something better, bigger and bolder. We build and attract cutting-edge solutions for countless industries. Plus, our continued growth—socially, physically and economically—propels well beyond many other cities.

What’s your favorite place to shop, eat or relax around town?
No doubt, Cafe Silvium on Shippan Avenue. Seriously the best food in town, lovely people who own the place and work there, and it’s overall a lovely small Italian escape and experience like no other.
