If you're opening a store, you may have a clear
idea of what you want to sell, where to get it, where your store
will be located, and how much money to spend.
If you want to open a store and you don't know
where to begin, it's a good idea to attend a trade show and meet
various vendors who sell merchandise you will be retailing.
Figure out what your budget will be, and what profit margin you
can expect to make.
If you want someone else to do all the work,
consider going with a franchise or working with a store
developer, who knows what sells best in your area and can find
you a profitable location. There are a lot of variables
you may not have considered, which can mean the difference
between the success and failure of your business. Someone
in the business of setting up stores knows what to watch out
for, and how best to make your store successful.
