The place where shopkeepers can be observed in their natural habitat late at night. While casual passers by might assume that the shop and its adjoining car park has been secured for the night, "shopkeeper watchers" know that this is the time that they can observe shopkeepers at play.
Within the confines of their secure paddock, they like to expose their bellies to the warm summer evening breeze. Some shopkeepers like to smoke, clear their throats, or scratch their buttocks with a piece of cardboard and/or stare vacantly at those gathered to watch at the shopkeeper zoo.
An example of a shopkeeper zoo is Supersave Market in Cabramatta
