Thinking about opening a Retail Store?

Many people have a passion and their dream is to open a small business or franchise. Here are a few things to consider.

What type of Store?
Passion, determination and love of the store are key ingredients because you will spend a lot of hours in the store.

What kind of retailer?
Retail consists of the sale of physical goods or merchandise from a fixed location, such as a department store, boutique or kiosk, or by mall, in small or individual lots for direct consumption by the purchaser. Retailing may include subordinated services, such as delivery.

Where will it be located?

Location is the most important ingredient for any business that relies on customers. It is also one of the most difficult to plan for completely. Many turn to a Real Estate professional to help guide them because they typically know the business area and what is available.  

How big of a store do you need?
Answering the above questions first will help determine the size. Also, working with the complex’s manager before signing a lease to determine what best suits your needs.
