Nimoy’s Pet Shop
Leonard Nimoy is another ill-advised celeb who put his hard-earned cash into a dodgy venture. Nimoy boldly went into the world of pet retail. Can you believe that? Nimoy’s Pet Shop opened for business in the 1960s in a corner of California that it seems was either not ready for or just plain not interested in the sort of exotic pets the Star Trek star wanted to sell.
You could buy, monkeys, chipmunks, otters and even crocodiles but the problem was that no one wanted to buy anything so Nimoy had to settle for a career as a major TV and movie star.
