CBD Is Showing Up Everywhere<br />

WE are not sure on where you stand on CBD or legalization of marijuana and all that but one<br />

thing that has become quite apparent is that it is a hot topic in many states as well as at many<br />

shopping mails.<br />

CBD, or cannabis oil, a compound derived from hemp and marijuana does not cause a “high”.<br />

Mainstream retailers are jumping on the sudden popularity of the product even though CBD’s<br />

health benefits remain quite murky amid a patchwork of both local and state laws, And the product<br />

is flooding the market so quickly that its been testing how federal regulators can even control it.<br />

RETAIL sales of CBD consumer products last year were estimated to top $2 billion and by 2025<br />

that figure can hit $16 billion in retail sales. Martha Stewart products is working with Canada’s<br />

Canopy Growth Corp to develop new CBD products and Simon Properties, the nation’s largest mall<br />

owner, has connected with a cannabis goods maker to open around 100 kiosks at US malls by midsummer<br />

this year.<br />

THERE are foot creams, soaps, edibles, oils and even CVS Health is starting to sell many items<br />

at their 800+ stores in seven states, with other rivals following suit.<br />

AND lest not retailers be left out, Barneys NY opened a shop in Beverly Hills, California to sell<br />

CBD infused creams along with hand blown glass bongs and other accessories. Neiman Marcus<br />

also started limited offerings in some of its stores.<br />

IT is interesting to see who is steering clear, at least for the time being. Amazon prohibits the<br />

sale of any CBD product on their marketplace. Walmart has no plans to carry CBD-infused items at<br />

this time and Target, which in 2017 sold hemp product extracts on its website quickly yanked them<br />

all off and said they are monitoring the situation.<br />

THE most interesting thing we could find about CBD is that there is very little evidence for all the<br />

health claims the industry touts. There is hype that it treats pain, reduces anxiety, helps you sleep,<br />

keeps you focused are all only based on studies of rats or mice in test tubes. Human research has<br />

been very limited.<br />

ONLY drugs that were reviewed by the FDA as safe and effective can tout claims of treatment<br />

or prevention. CBD producers get around this by using vague language.<br />

THIS is going to be a very interesting struggle between the regulators and the retailers. It could<br />

be billions of dollars of “snake oil” being sold to consumers. It is early on and we will probably see<br />

some serious regulation coming down the pike. Or consumers, after trying it with no result will kill<br />

the market themselves.<br />

Fred’s and Ollie’s<br />

PERSONALLY I have never seen either store, but apparently these discounters are owned by the<br />

same family and are off price stores. Fred’s apparently is in a death spiral closing around 25% of<br />

their stores while on the other hand Ollie’s is riding high with more store openings coming up.<br />

A big part of the failure and success is how operations are run. Fred’s control is by financial<br />

investors while Ollie’s growth has been organic without overwhelming outside debt. Retailing and<br />

debt loads just don’t mix!<br />

THE true formula of a successful discounter is instant brand recognition on the closeouts they<br />

sell. You need to be consistent and offer good products and values to the shoppers. It appears that<br />

Ollie’s will endure for the long haul while Fred’s future is not looking too promising.<br />

Operating<br />

Your<br />

Operating Your<br />

RETAIL STORE<br />

S T O R E<br />

work in the field and spend a lot of time traveling.<br />

Distributors take orders by phone, fax, or<br />

modem. They may hear from more retailers in<br />

a day than the field sales staff can visit in a<br />

week.<br />

Other companies rely on independent sales<br />

representatives – commonly called reps – to develop,<br />

service, and sell to their retail network.<br />

Reps function much like a company’s own<br />

sales force. Usually they represent the product<br />

lines of companies too small for a dedicated<br />

sales staff, or for suppliers without sales staff in<br />

a particular region of the country. Reps usually<br />

handle only one brand in a category. They may<br />

represent several suppliers in an industry as<br />

long as those products are not in direct competition.<br />

This can give them a much broader sense<br />

of trends; reps are especially well attuned to<br />

what’s happening at retail.<br />

Most salespeople don’t actually deliver the<br />

goods they sell. Your order will get passed on<br />

to the supplier’s own warehouse, or to a distributor<br />

who fills the order. Some distributors<br />

function as shipping warehouses for the manufacturer.<br />

Others operate as product wholesalers,<br />

a retailer to the retailer. Some<br />

distributors publish a catalog detailing the variety<br />

of products available for order and delivery.<br />

Since they’re more often specialists in a category<br />

rather than a particular manufacturer’s<br />

line of product, distributors often have the best<br />

insight into market trends. Other salespeople<br />

While their primary function is to sell, anyone<br />

serving as the supplier’s middle man should be<br />

regarded as an ally in developing your store’s<br />

marketing program. They’re a good source for<br />

information on what products will be promoted,<br />

when, and how. They can help you acquire<br />

everything related to product support,<br />

from literature and ad slicks to co-op dollars for<br />

local advertising.<br />

Occasionally you may deal with an individual<br />

who actually makes the products he wants<br />

your store to sell. This is especially true for<br />

stores marketing arts and crafts or other oneof-a-kind<br />

products. The often self-employed<br />

producers of these goods usually lack the resources<br />

to extend the payment terms available<br />

from distributors and manufacturers. The best<br />

they can do is agree to supply you with goods<br />

on consignment. The maker of the craft sets her<br />

price, and you’re free to add whatever margin<br />

seems reasonable. When the product sells, the<br />

artist gets paid. This strategy benefits both parties,<br />

especially when either is building a business.<br />

Selling on consignment gives the supplier<br />

a market to prove the worth of the product. For<br />

you, it’s a risk-free opportunity to experiment<br />

with new inventory.<br />

DEFINED BY PRICE<br />

Regardless of how your store acquires its stock,<br />

one of the toughest challenges facing you is establishing<br />

a pricing strategy. Price sends consumers<br />

a loud message about who you want to<br />

be. People shop specialty stores for the combination<br />

of selection and service not found elsewhere.<br />

They expect to pay a little more for that<br />

privilege. Pricing should be a reasonable response<br />

to the trends in the market and an acknowledgment<br />

that your store offers<br />

something more. The specialty store owner<br />

who cuts margins close in a pitch for sales undercuts<br />

the reasons the store exists.<br />

Price must allow room to cover expenses and<br />

provide a living wage. If the store concept cannot<br />

deliver that much return, you chose the<br />

forumworkshop<br />

FORUM WORKSHOP<br />

Page 32 JUNE <strong>2019</strong> | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE<br />

wrong niche. Consider<br />

the expenses<br />

<br />

to be covered by the<br />

difference between<br />

what you pay and<br />

sell goods for: rent<br />

or mortgage, insurance,<br />

utilities, computers, advertising, upkeep<br />

and improvements on the store. Add to that<br />

your responsibilities as an employer. Staff deserves<br />

a decent wage. A benefits package is<br />

smart, too; it’s cheaper to hold on to your old<br />

employees than find, hire, and train new ones.<br />

Only after you’ve met all those obligations can<br />

you start thinking about your own salary. So if<br />

your pricing doesn’t allow room to cover all the<br />

basics, there won’t be much of anything in the<br />

till by the time you dip into it for your compensation.<br />

THE MASTER OF ALL TRADES<br />

forumworkshop<br />

FORUM WORKSHOP<br />

Hotcig Kubi Pod<br />

Starter Kit 550mAh<br />

Getting paid is but one among your many concerns.<br />

Large retailers have people to worry<br />

about every aspect of the business. You must be<br />

a master of all trades; management and marketing;<br />

advertising and promotion; purchasing<br />

and collections; display and delivery; selection<br />

and service; personnel and customer relations.<br />

<br />

Who said self-employment<br />

had anything to<br />

do with freedom from<br />

work? All those little<br />

responsibilities others<br />

leave at the office belong<br />

to the small business owner to take with<br />

him wherever he goes. Success as an independent<br />

retailer requires a clairvoyant’s eye and a<br />

fisherman’s patience. Not only must you sense<br />

what the customers want, but when and how<br />

much.<br />

Every retail operation, every type of store, is a<br />

seasonal business. For most the holiday rush is<br />

the make-or-break period. Others depend on<br />

summer vacations or the whims of fashion with<br />

the changing seasons. Knowing what to stock,<br />

when, and how to promote it for maximum<br />

sales is a survival skill you’ll need to refine,<br />

over time, into an art.<br />

The dynamics of retailing offer<br />

opportunities to those rare individuals<br />

with a mind for business and<br />

a personality for people.<br />

FORUM WORKSHOP<br />

Supreme confidence and optimism are requisites<br />

for anyone willing to surrender the security<br />

of employment to make their own careers.<br />

Still interested? Then it’s time to assess your<br />

skills and begin building the foundation for<br />

your retail empire.<br />

Have You Got What It Takes?<br />

Eager to work 7 days a week, at least 15 hours<br />

a day? Looking for the chance to spend even<br />

less time with family<br />

<br />

members and loved ones<br />

than you already do?<br />

Ready to give up vacations<br />

or holidays for the<br />

next year ... or two ...<br />

maybe five? Can you<br />

muster enthusiasm about surrendering the security<br />

of employment for the personal and financial<br />

risks of self- employment? Do you<br />

cherish an opportunity to toil harder, longer,<br />

and possibly for less money, so you can be your<br />

own boss?<br />

If you can answer yes to these questions – and<br />

that doesn’t scare you – you’ve got the attitude<br />

to make it as a retail entrepreneur. For if there’s<br />

one trait shared by every entrepreneur, evident<br />

in every success story you’ve ever read, it’s a<br />

singular determination to pursue one’s dream,<br />

one’s goal, whatever the odds.<br />

Hard work isn’t enough to secure your store’s<br />

future, though. There are other business skills<br />

and personality traits that will help you bring<br />

your dream to life. What skills you lack, you<br />

can develop. But without an entrepreneur’s unshakable<br />

drive, the challenges that go into<br />

opening your store will overwhelm you.<br />

THE ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT<br />

The entrepreneur<br />

☛<br />

doesn’t get discouraged.<br />

You can be stubborn<br />

to a fault, but<br />

you must be honest<br />

enough to admit<br />

when you’re wrong.<br />

You must be goal-oriented, and willing to do yourself<br />

whatever is required to nurture your dream to<br />

life. You’ll need to stick with a strategy as long<br />

as you’re convinced it best serves your goal.<br />

But if you’re shown a better way, you’ll need to<br />

eagerly surrender yesterday’s plan for today’s<br />

solution.<br />

If you’re an entrepreneur, what will matter is<br />

success, on your terms. You’ll need to believe<br />

in yourself and your business dreams, absolutely.<br />

Your motivation must be the opportunity<br />

to realize a personal vision, not convincing<br />

the rest of the world of your vision’s merits.<br />

What the world thinks now shouldn’t matter to<br />

you; the world will catch up, eventually. You’re<br />

preoccupied with achieving personal goals that<br />

will bring you a more rewarding career. Your<br />

commitment is complete; and you’ll throw<br />

into achieving that goal, entirely.<br />

FORUM WORKSHOP<br />

Your enthusiasm should be<br />

☺<br />

contagious, because you love<br />

what you’re doing. It also<br />

springs from your drive to<br />

provide meaningful service<br />

to the community through retailing.<br />

The entrepreneur finds the better way<br />

of doing things, and draws rewards and fulfillment<br />

when the public recognizes his contribution.<br />

These are spiritual rewards, the emotional<br />

satisfaction a business brings that you can’t define<br />

in dollars and cents.<br />

You’re in it for the money, surely. But that<br />

should be more the symbol than substance of<br />

your success. Your drive demonstrates your<br />

dissatisfaction with the statues quo. The security<br />

of a nine-to-five job, a measured climb up<br />

the career ladder – that’s right for somebody<br />

else, not you. You’ll work longer hours, and<br />

perhaps make less money, for the independence<br />

that comes only with controlling your<br />

own career.<br />

Psychologists, psychiatrists, and academics<br />

have long tried to identify the personal traits<br />

that separate the entrepreneur from the crowd.<br />

More than anything else, their studies suggest<br />

the entrepreneur is an individual driven by<br />

challenge. The entrepreneur is self-made, not<br />

born. If there’s a trait common to all, it’s singular<br />

dedication to the hard work that will realize<br />

their particular dream. Entrepreneurs come in<br />

Discover why Diamond Veneer puts to shame the common CZ for it’s genuine Diamond Feel and Look! Why Buy Diamonds?<br />

We are introducing the revolutionary process of treating Cubic Zirconia with a veneer of carbon diamond particles, crystallizing around<br />

the entire stone resulting in a flawless “G” color on the diamond color scale. This vaporization process under extreme heat and pressure<br />

conditions significantly increases (five times) the fire, refraction, and durability of the CZ as a real diamond at a fraction of the cost.<br />

The main advantage of this Concept is the fact that DIAMOND VENEER blurred the main differences between real Diamonds and the<br />

CZ, to a point of absolute no recognition. The fact that the CZ is no longer white, now even professional jewelers lost their expert eye<br />

advantage recognizing DIAMOND VENEER as fakes!<br />

This revolutionary Coating concept allows women (and Man) to wear the<br />

DIAMOND VENEER jewelry without worries of being detected as wearing fake! It’s a CZ on Steroids.<br />

FORUM WORKSHOP<br />

The entrepreneur is the athlete of the business<br />

world. The individual who summons every resource,<br />

every skill and experience, and patiently<br />

applies all of this to reaching his goal.<br />

He cherishes the challenge as much as the<br />

progress in making his way. The entrepreneur<br />

is at once the contestant and opponent, runner<br />

and referee. It’s her race and prize. Tempered<br />

by disappointment, the entrepreneur never<br />

loses sight of the goal, no matter what the odds.<br />

<br />

Everyone loves a<br />

success; no one<br />

cares about a success<br />

in the making.<br />

Until you arrive,<br />

you’ll face a long<br />

and lonely road.<br />

The climb to the<br />

sesses<br />

top, to the realization of your dream, is one demanding<br />

self-reliance. You should know, or<br />

you’ll learn, to trust none but yourself. Entrepreneurial<br />

experience teaches the essential<br />

truth of the proverb “If you want something<br />

done, do it yourself.” The reach for independence<br />

and self-determination is the entrepreneur‘s<br />

response to the world. If you’re truly an<br />

entrepreneur , you want more for yourself than<br />

anyone else can deliver. In the early stages of<br />

building the business, you alone are the keeper<br />

of the dream.<br />

You’ll make demands of everyone, but no more<br />

than of yourself. The challenges you’ll face are<br />

greatest at the outset, but they never abate. Certain<br />

characteristics, innate traits, tilt the scales<br />

in favor of success for the individual who posthem.<br />

FORUM WORKSHOP<br />

forumworkshop<br />

You need a positive attitude, a certain cockiness<br />

built of confidence, unshakable determination<br />

and enthusiasm. Beyond that, the skills required<br />

for success can be developed or hired.<br />

What separates the achievers from the aspirants<br />

is awareness of their own limitations.<br />

Stubborn to a fault, single-minded, immune to<br />

criticism, you must also possess the instinctive<br />

sense to recognize when to turn to outside help.<br />

That’s a point of strength, not an admission of<br />

defeat. Nature endows<br />

but few of us with everything<br />

required to make a<br />

success of our dreams.<br />

The entrepreneur is the<br />

one who can build on<br />

strengths by compensating<br />

for weaknesses.<br />

Recognizing which skills you have, and which<br />

you lack, is a necessary first step in that process.<br />

The retail entrepreneur must be both an effective<br />

business manager and a skilled marketer.<br />

Your management and marketing skills will either<br />

support the vision through to success, or<br />

crumble from the stress that results when one<br />

takes on more than one should, or strives to do<br />

more than one could.<br />

THE RETAIL MANAGER<br />

Every business depends on an effective manager,<br />

the decision maker who directs the operation,<br />

supervises the staff, plans for the future,<br />

and ensures the entire operation runs smoothly.<br />

The retail manager must effectively manage<br />

store operations and manage people. Each re-<br />

quires certain skills and attitude.<br />

Review the following sections to help identify<br />

the skills you need to improve or develop if<br />

you are to give your store a fair chance of success.<br />

BEING THE BOSS MEANS YOU<br />

HAVE TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY<br />

As the owner/operator, you’re heir<br />

<br />

to every responsibility related to<br />

managing your store. You have all<br />

the responsibility, all the authority<br />

for building success. You own<br />

whatever headaches and triumphs<br />

the business brings.<br />

As your business grows, or if business start-up WHERE’S<br />

resources allow it, you may decide to hire staff<br />

to handle some of the key areas of responsibility<br />

like running your business office, supervising<br />

the sales floor, or buying inventory. But if<br />

you’re like most start-up retailers, you can expect<br />

to wear all hats and catch all the grief and<br />

what little praise falls your way. As the manager,<br />

you’ll handle all the decision making related<br />

to running the business; everything from<br />

buying light bulbs to balancing the books and<br />

seeing Uncle Sam gets his due. Each area of<br />

management responsibility demands a certain<br />

level of awareness and skills, if not absolute expertise.<br />

From long before the<br />

store formally opens its<br />

doors to closing day, finances<br />

should top<br />

your concerns. Just as<br />

money drives the national<br />

economy, cash<br />

flow keeps your store<br />

on the road to success.<br />

<br />

You don’t need to be a certified public accountant,<br />

but familiarity with basic principles of<br />

bookkeeping is strongly advisable. You should<br />

know how to project costs, read and keep a balance<br />

sheet, and analyze financial records for insight<br />

into the business. Your financial<br />

responsibilities will also entail controlling<br />

spending activities, budgeting expenses, and<br />

reconciling records and accounts. Managing finances<br />

means accurately projecting how much<br />

funding the store will need, and when.<br />

These skills can be self-taught from articles like<br />

this one, learned in night courses, and mastered<br />

through experience. You can also make it a<br />

computer-learning process, developing your<br />

skills as you learn how to run your business<br />

with a computer system. Computer hardware<br />

and software should be considered the basic<br />

tools of business management in the 21st century.<br />

For now, it’s enough to say few retailers<br />

will be able to conduct business without them,<br />

and remain competitive. Computers are work<br />

savers. The right program, or application, will<br />

help organize all management responsibilities,<br />

do the books, reconcile accounts, and provide<br />

you with up-to-the-minute insight into any aspect<br />

of the business.<br />

You’ll Need to Manage the Inventory<br />

All stores sell something. Products are your<br />

business, so everything related to what you sell<br />

and why is your decision. Managing inventory<br />

begins with selecting the right product mix.<br />

You'll need to respond to trends, seasonal and<br />

otherwise. What everyone wants this month,<br />

you won’t be able to give away next month.<br />

You must know how much to order, when, and<br />

then when to reorder. When something starts<br />

to languish on the shelves, you must sense<br />

when it’s time to drop prices and cut losses.<br />

To a certain degree, experience will endow such<br />

instincts. From the beginning, though, you<br />

should develop a practice of maintaining accurate<br />

inventory records. Any retailer who enters<br />

Take your<br />

Business to the<br />

Next Level<br />

<br />

business today thinking<br />

he can keep the stock<br />

records in his head is<br />

inviting in thieves or<br />

misfortune. In either<br />

event, you won’t really<br />

know how much you<br />

lost. Again, a computer<br />

system, as an organizational<br />

tool and time<br />

saver, is recommended.<br />

Success as a retailer in the 21st century will owe<br />

much to the science of specialization. One of<br />

your ongoing challenges will be to keep pace<br />

with the latest developments in your category.<br />

It won’t be enough for you to visit trade shows<br />

for an annual update on your industry.<br />

Your viability as the expert demands you constantly<br />

sift through manufacturer announcements,<br />

distributor catalogs, trade journals, and<br />

the business section of the local paper in pursuit<br />

of the next competitive advantage. With<br />

that, you’ll continually monitor the competition,<br />

both through their advertising and inside<br />

their stores.<br />

As inventory manager, you’ll pull together the<br />

product mix that differentiates your store from<br />

every other store handling the same products.<br />

Once that mix is determined, and the products<br />

are in stock, you’ll also need to set up displays<br />

that draw shoppers to the products. You’ll decide<br />

what receives prominent play on the sales<br />

floor, and when it’s appropriate to rotate the<br />

merchandise.<br />

If the sales strategy<br />

includes telemarketing<br />

sales or mail<br />

order, inventory<br />

management also entails<br />

delivery service:<br />

packing and shipping<br />

products by the<br />

cheapest carrier and making sure they reach<br />

their destination. As if you didn’t have enough<br />

to contend with.<br />

You’ll Need to Manage People<br />

Since retailing is a people business, you’ll need<br />

to be a “people person”: an effective communicator,<br />

ever the charmer, yet able to draw the line<br />

and stand your ground when the situation demands<br />

it.<br />

☎<br />

Managing relations with<br />

people will put you in<br />

contact with 3 groups:<br />

staff, suppliers’ representatives,<br />

and customers.<br />

When dealing<br />

with anyone, the ability<br />

to communicate directly<br />

and effectively, in writing, person to person, or<br />

over the phone, is the basis of rewarding relationships.<br />

When you need to convey a point –<br />

whether placing an order or setting employee<br />

policy – the message should be above debate.<br />

Managing staff requires responsiveness to their<br />

needs. Effective managers inspire rather than<br />

direct others. They let others know exactly<br />

what is expected of them. They promote spirit<br />

and team so people want to contribute to the<br />

common good. A team is composed of individuals;<br />

the smart manager recognizes the potential<br />

and limits of each player. He asks without<br />

demanding, and helps people test their skills<br />

and develop their potential. Still, the effective<br />

manager establishes definable benchmarks of<br />

what’s expected and what will be accepted<br />

from others. The manager remains gracious to<br />

a point, but firm beyond that.<br />

In dealings with suppliers, you’ll have certain<br />

expectations, yet you’ll need to recognize your<br />

own obligations. You must remain a loyal customer<br />

as long as that loyalty is rewarded. You<br />

must be open to suggestions on how to help<br />

your business. You’ll need to be honest and<br />

open with suppliers in all dealings, and demand<br />

the same respect from those you trade<br />

with.<br />

FORUM WORKSHOP<br />

Page 58 JUNE <strong>2019</strong> | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE<br />

These same attitudes will guide your relations<br />

with customers. In the early history of most retail<br />

operations, the store owner is the store to<br />

shoppers. She’s the salesperson, the stock clerk,<br />

and cashier all rolled into one smiling individual.<br />

Enthusiasm always wins customers over.<br />

In all dealings with customers, store personnel<br />

should follow the owner’s lead and maintain a<br />

degree of professionalism and warmth. No one<br />

enjoys dealing with a retail salesperson who<br />

comes across as slick and primed for any sale.<br />

<br />

Managing people requires<br />

combining the<br />

psychological and intuitive<br />

skills mentioned<br />

earlier with an<br />

ability to communicate<br />

directly and effec-<br />

pect<br />

tively. You’ll need to be a skilled observer, able<br />

to read faces and interpret body language, cognizant<br />

of how the pause in the conversation defines<br />

intent. You need the innate ability to hear<br />

what shoppers say, and understand what they<br />

aren’t saying.<br />

Such skills must be cultivated. Your classroom<br />

could be any public place where people interact.<br />

But since stores are your future, that’s<br />

where you should begin your education. Even<br />

before you know what type of store you want<br />

to run, visit all stores as an observer of the people<br />

who work and shop them. Solicit the help<br />

of salespeople. Test their knowledge and skills,<br />

and learn from their responses. Your experiences<br />

should give you direction and insight on<br />

how to treat your customers, and how they exto<br />

be treated.<br />

FORUM WORKSHOP<br />

☺<br />

Stop by the customer service<br />

desk. Listen to shoppers<br />

and their frustrations.<br />

Watch their behavior. How<br />

do the clerks handle them?<br />

What works, and what<br />

doesn’t? Is there anything<br />

you would do to improve<br />

relations?<br />

The store owner who understands people,<br />

what they want and how to please them, is one<br />

whose business enjoys a head start. The skills<br />

required for business management and marketing<br />

can be acquired through training or experience.<br />

Anyone who emphasizes those over<br />

“people” skills is denying the reason all stores<br />

exist and prosper: to serve the shopper.<br />

Page 60 JUNE <strong>2019</strong> | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE<br />

The retail manager demonstrates a certain respect<br />

for others and an interest in them. To sell<br />

to people, you must like them, generally and<br />

individually. After all, that’s what retailing is<br />

all about: serving people.<br />

THE RETAIL MARKETER<br />

Put a good selection of products in a well-designed<br />

store and you’ll soon starve ... if that’s<br />

all you do. Why? Because before shoppers buy<br />

from your store, they must know it’s there.<br />

Telling them about the store, what it offers and<br />

why they should shop there, is a make-or-break<br />

challenge for you. As the store owner and its<br />

business manager, your marketing responsibilities<br />

are as critical to the fate of the business as<br />

your management skills.<br />

It’s not enough to develop, nurture, and manage<br />

your vision of the perfect store, you must<br />

also sell others on the concept, continually.<br />

Whenever you seek financial backing for your<br />

store – be it from banks to finance your dream<br />

or the customers you hope will flock to your<br />

latest sale – you’re involved in marketing.<br />

Marketing is as much about public relations as<br />

promotions. It shapes the best face you put before<br />

your customers, the store image that invites<br />

them in or keeps them away. The store<br />

name, logo, design, and displays, special promotions<br />

and sales, community involvement,<br />

and advertising all fall within your realm as retail<br />

marketer.<br />

If you’re serious about going into business for<br />

yourself, you already possess the basic skill of<br />

marketing: confidence in your abilities and vision.<br />

If you don’t believe in your store concept,<br />

and question your ability, read no further. This<br />

article is written for people who know they can<br />

make it on their own. How can you hope to<br />

convince others of your store if you don’t completely<br />

believe in it yourself?<br />

If you have that confidence, you shouldn’t have<br />

trouble summoning the enthusiasm to promote<br />

the concept. Effective marketing requires your<br />

confidence and enthusiasm. These are qualities<br />

you won’t find in any book, and you can’t get<br />

them from night school. They must be part of<br />

your psyche from the outset.<br />

The successful retail marketer<br />

has such a great store, with<br />

such a great selection, that<br />

she’s bursting to let the world<br />

know where it is.<br />

In getting that word out, you’ll be challenged<br />

to use public relations, promotions, and advertising<br />

to create the positive perceptions that<br />

will win loyal customers for your store.<br />

THE MYTH OF FREEDOM<br />

Now that you’re familiar with the breadth of<br />

responsibility that goes with running a store,<br />

perhaps it’s worth pausing a moment to reflect<br />

on your dream of freedom through retailing.<br />

As demonstrated in the previous pages, running<br />

your own retail store is all about hard<br />

work, dedication to long days, and uncertain<br />

gains. If your definition of freedom holds no<br />

place for these, then you should not assume the<br />

risks of starting your own retail business. The<br />

freedom the store promises is the sense of liberation<br />

that comes with controlling your destiny.<br />

Certainly hard work is required, but you’re the<br />

sole beneficiary of that dedication, not some<br />

guy in the big office at the end of the hall on the<br />

5th floor.<br />

<br />

When you wake up<br />

in the morning,<br />

when you go to bed<br />

at night, as the store<br />

owner, you’re in<br />

charge. You may<br />

work long hours,<br />

you may lose a few hairs, but your success, or<br />

failure, is entirely your own. And when there’s<br />

another generation hungry to climb up the career<br />

ladder, there won’t be anyone who can<br />

push you out of the business you nurtured and<br />

brought to success yourself.<br />

If that sounds like freedom to you, running<br />

your own store definitely promises a better future<br />

than the alternative.<br />

HONING YOUR SKILLS<br />

That said, the faster you develop your skills,<br />

the faster you’ll be able to set that dream in motion.<br />

One of the most valuable attributes you<br />

can possess is an ability and willingness to recognize<br />

personal limitations. When there’s<br />

something you can’t do, better to hire the person<br />

who can than stumble deeper into a maze<br />

of your making.<br />

on your own, either through self-education<br />

or by attending evening courses or<br />

professional development seminars. You must<br />

Our specialty is helping small and<br />

mid-sized businesses achieve success.<br />

Contact us for free consultation.<br />

be realistic in terms<br />

of personal expectations<br />

and obligations,<br />

though. You<br />

can study store design<br />

at night school<br />

for a semester, or hire a consultant who can do<br />

the job in 2 weeks. Your time is your most important<br />

asset. If you’re smart, you’ll manage<br />

time as a limited resource.<br />

Take a few moments to fill out the skills evaluation<br />

chart following. Be honest and thorough<br />

with your answers; you want to identify your<br />

weaknesses so you can improve your skills.<br />

Use your time now, as you begin investigating<br />

your skills. Observe and learn from the<br />

success of other retailers.<br />

CHOOSING YOUR MARKET<br />

If you’ve read this far, you’re obviously serious<br />

about opening your own store. The workload<br />

described wasn’t enough to scare you off, and<br />

you realize opening your own store carries<br />

both risks and opportunity. From here you’ll<br />

start putting theory into practice, and you’ll<br />

plan your store.<br />

The process begins with choosing your market.<br />

Your store’s identity, and your future as the retail<br />

entrepreneur, depends on the mix of products<br />

you sell, the services you provide, and the<br />

customers you serve. We’ll focus on the initial<br />

research you should do as you investigate your<br />

best retail opportunity. Ideally the store you<br />

open builds on your present skills and interests,<br />

the local and national trends, etc.<br />

FORUM WORKSHOP<br />

forumworkshop<br />

Your first step is to begin<br />

<br />

keeping a notebook or<br />

set up a computer file<br />

devoted to your retail<br />

store. When you put<br />

your thoughts and plans on paper, and can return<br />

to them, they assume a greater sense of urgency.<br />

Written plans and established goals<br />

provide a yardstick with which to measure<br />

your progress, or lack of it. For some of us,<br />

writing things down helps organize our<br />

thoughts and plans. Once recorded for posterity,<br />

they’re there as a reference, either to jog<br />

your memory or refamiliarize you with something<br />

once learned but forgotten.<br />

You can increase your chances for success if<br />

you enter a product market already familiar to<br />

you. So the investigation begins with an assessment<br />

of what you bring to the venture in background,<br />

skills, and interest. This information<br />

should provide insight on the products or<br />

product categories you are best suited to sell.<br />

In your first entry, describe yourself: age, income,<br />

family, interests, things you enjoy doing,<br />

things you hate doing, and anything else you<br />

would use to describe you. Include your major<br />

accomplishments or disappointments, as well<br />

as your personal and financial goals.<br />

Next compose a few lines summarizing why<br />

you want to go into business for yourself.<br />

What’s so bad about your present job? How<br />

will owning your business improve that? What<br />

do you want from your store? What will it take<br />

to make you happy? What strengths do you<br />

bring to business?<br />

What skills do you need to improve? What<br />

kind of income are you looking for? What excites<br />

you most about being in business for<br />

yourself? Least? What do you expect to gain,<br />

professionally and personally, from opening<br />

your own store?<br />

Finally, focus on your present thoughts about<br />

your store. Do you have any particular store or<br />

store type in mind, or do you just want to open<br />

“a store?” What will you sell? Where will it be?<br />

Who are your customers?<br />

SELL WHAT YOU KNOW<br />

Unless your plans for a career in retailing are<br />

built around buying an established store, your<br />

responses to the last set of questions demand a<br />

great deal of time and thought and will evolve<br />

in the process. Deciding what type of store<br />

you’ll open, selecting your merchandise, and<br />

identifying your market niche, when taken together,<br />

amount to defining your business.<br />

As mentioned earlier, today’s retail marketplace<br />

offers distinct opportunities for the specialty<br />

store concept. There are certain store<br />

types that, given the right location, will usually<br />

succeed: the combination convenience<br />

store/gas station sitting<br />

at the exit ramp of a<br />

<br />

busy interstate; the pharmacy/health<br />

and beauty<br />

aid store across the street<br />

from the major medical<br />

center; and the newsstand/candy<br />

shop at the<br />

entrance of the commuter<br />

railway station.<br />

Unfortunately, the prime<br />

real estate that all but<br />

guarantees prosperity<br />

for certain retail ventures<br />

has by now all been<br />

claimed. Sure, the occasional<br />

new interstate or<br />

major shopping mall<br />

will still be built. But today the typical independent<br />

retailer has to rely on more than location<br />

to deliver customers. The store itself must<br />

possess some compelling feature that makes<br />

people want to shop there.<br />

Today’s trend of huge, generalist discount<br />

stores and price clubs creates a real need for the<br />

smaller specialty store. You can, and must,<br />

focus your business on a narrow segment of the<br />

market, defined either by interest, age group,<br />

<br />

or demographic profile. That’s the market upon<br />

which you can build a business. It’s not enough<br />

to put together a selective assortment of merchandise<br />

and wait to tally sales. To be successful<br />

you must present shoppers with solutions<br />

to their purchase needs. That may be as frivolous<br />

as a new doodad to display on their mantel,<br />

or as necessary as a new liner for the<br />

chimney. The successful specialty store gains a<br />

reputation as the unrivaled source for selection<br />

and related services in a select category of merchandise.<br />

Whatever the category, you’ll need to be fully<br />

familiar with the products you sell, and their<br />

applications. It’s not enough to know what is<br />

available in your selected market niche, however.<br />

The specialty retailer must know all there<br />

is about the products the store sells.<br />

FORUM WORKSHOP<br />

forumworkshop<br />

Remember, the specialty store exists to provide<br />

solutions for a distinct group of customers.<br />

Your knowledge and enthusiasm are an important<br />

aspect of what the store offers.<br />

For that reason, if you want to open a store, but<br />

aren’t yet sure what type it should be, you<br />

should begin the planning process with a thorough<br />

evaluation of your interests and experience.<br />

Look within, first, for anything in your<br />

background, experience, or hobbies that might<br />

lend itself to a retail store. The gourmet knows<br />

food and how to prepare it. The outdoorsman,<br />

camping equipment. The working woman respects<br />

the challenge of balancing career and<br />

family.<br />

In each case above, the individual could develop<br />

a store concept around the interest, im-<br />

mediately identifiable<br />

by shoppers: The<br />

Gourmet Pantry of<br />

special kitchen tools<br />

and condiments; Trips<br />

and Trails, the backpacker’s<br />

warehouse;<br />

Mother’s Helper,<br />

where women find everything from quick<br />

meals to games for quality family time. Whenever<br />

an entrepreneur develops a store concept<br />

around a personal interest or concern, the store<br />

gains a mission. The owner brings genuine passion<br />

to the endeavor, and that can prove contagious<br />

to shoppers. And in pursuing your own<br />

interests and helping others in that pursuit,<br />

running the store is not a job, but a pleasure.<br />

Such fortunate retailers can’t wait to get to<br />

work, and they have trouble leaving at the end<br />

of the day.<br />

Creating your store around something you already<br />

know and enjoy strengthens the business.<br />

It’s easier to get enthusiastic about<br />

something fondly familiar than something entirely<br />

new. By selling what you know, you give<br />

yourself a head start and cut down on the time<br />

required to learn an entirely new category of<br />

goods. To succeed as a 21st century retail entrepreneur,<br />

you must be the recognized expert on<br />

what you sell. That expertise should be rooted<br />

in your own experience and interests.<br />

The specialty store draws its appeal from the<br />

combination of product selection and related<br />

services available only there. Camera stores<br />

stock cameras, accessories, and<br />

frames, and offer camera repair<br />

and film processing. Computer<br />

stores sell hardware and software<br />

along with such services<br />

as repair, installation, and training.<br />

Use your own shopping experience<br />

as an aid in identifying potential<br />

market opportunities. Compare your needs for<br />

selection and service with what you’ve found<br />

in the marketplace.<br />

So if you want to open a store, but aren’t yet<br />

certain what kind, get out your notebook and<br />

start jotting down notes. Where are your real<br />

interests and experience? Is there anything<br />

there that lends itself to a specialty store?<br />
