BUYERS & SELLERS TOGETHER UNDER ONE ROOF AT LVCC

The leading wholesaler and supplier brands

will come together at ASD Marketweek,

July 28th - 31st, 2019 in a distinct trade show

experience for thousands of exhibitors in the style

and beauty, jewelry, gift, toy, and value categories.

The ASD shows provide a unique environment

where buyers and sellers come together to do

business. By having the entire show under one roof

at the Convention Center it makes it convenient

for attending buyers to cover more exhibits and

spend more time with the exhibitors to make their

purchases. The show continues to evolve and

improve by separating product categories such as

gift, toy, fashion and general merchandise making

it easier than ever for buyers to pinpoint specific

areas to see the products they are interested in.

In addition, the show will offer seminars on topics of

interest to the current retail environment including

social media, search engine strategies, e-commerce

and global sales strategies. All seminars will take

place on site at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

For over 58 years, ASD Marketweek has been

serving the unique community of buyers and sellers

in the wholesale and mass retail arenas. The show

will take place from July 28th - 31st, 2019 at the

Las Vegas Convention Center and is expected to

draw nearly 45,000 attendees including large chain

retail stores, independent retailers, online retailers,

distributors, boutique franchisers, mall carts and

kiosks. The show offers the most comprehensive

selection of general merchandise under one roof

in the country.

Forum Publishing Company, who recently celebrated their 38 th Anniversary in May, has been a proud Media Partner

of the ASD Marketweek since 1981. We welcome all exhibitors and attendees to visit our booths at the show.

you set up several weekends and don’t even recover

your booth expenses, you may want to

retool your concept. Before you do, try a couple

of different flea markets. It may be that the first

flea market failed to draw the people who’ll

support your business. If you still experience

problems after trying 2 or 3 different flea markets,

then rethink your business.

There are viable alternatives for a retail experiment

that minimize your risks. So do you really

need a storefront now? Isn’t there another way

you could market products to your customers

without physically setting up shop? In the initial

stages of developing your retail business, it

may be in your best interest to start of smaller,

“field-test” your concept, and cultivate a consumer

market in the process. Several sales avenues

warrant investigation.

OPEN A BOOTH

AT A FLEA MARKET

One of the easiest ways to test your concept is

to open a booth at an area flea market. Once the

last stop for grandma’s junk no one had the

heart to throw out, flea markets are now the

modern equivalent of the sales bazaars of the

Old World. People of every description, and

every income level, visit them for entertainment

as much as for an opportunity to buy.

SET UP A KIOSK IN A MALL,

OR RENT A MINI-STORE

Many shopping malls in the country now open

their corridors to booth and kiosk sales, as well.

Talk about a perfect place to test your concept!

Floor space in the mall is by no means cheap,

but requires much less investment than a store

in the same mall. Some larger individual retailers

also sublease mini-departments on their

sales floor. For the mall or store this is an easy

way to offer a broader selection of merchandise

in the hope of attracting more shoppers. Either

of these options can be used to test both the location

and your idea for a store. If the ministore

fails in the aisles, where traffic is greatest,

it certainly won’t prosper as a full-size store set

back into one of the available storefronts.

continued...

RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE | AUGUST 2019 Page 31


Another nice thing about this way of testing

your idea is that it allows you to set up and take

down your “store” with ease. You can move it

around if need be, and experiment with different

locations at one site or several sites. You can

also try various display techniques and product

mixes with a minimum of investment.

SELL FROM A PEDDLER’S WAGON

On the street, a peddler’s wagon, loaded with a

sampling of the goods you want to sell, is another

way to sample the public response. If you

take this route, you’ll probably need a license

to sell on the streets. Thoroughly investigate

your obligations. Contact city hall and the local

chamber of commerce as well as your state’s

small business assistance agency, and ask each

what licenses or permits are required.

forumworkshop

FORUM WORKSHOP

START OFF WITH MAIL ORDER

Another way to


test your idea with

minimal investment

is to start as

a mail-order business.

Once again,

you’ll need to check into local regulations, licenses,

and tax obligations. Mail order can provide

you with an effective tool for testing your

concept and in the process let you collect the

names of potential customers for future sales.

The toughest challenge in mail order is figuring

out how to reach your audience. That can take

time. You’ll know you’re getting your message

to your audience when your mailbox is brimming

with orders.

ASSESSING YOUR NEEDS

Now let’s proceed beyond the experimental

mode. Assume your experience with one of

these convinces you your retail concept is a real

winner, or you’ve got so much unshakable confidence

in your store, you know your store will

make it. How do you go about finding the

right location? Well, before you can begin answering

that, you must know what you need in

a storefront. You probably won’t find any single

location that meets all your needs – you’ll need

to settle for whatever location offers the closest

match.

SHOULD YOU BUY OR RENT?

Before you begin your search, you must decide

whether you want to buy or rent the space.

Start.

Grow.

Repair.

Our specialty is helping small and

mid-sized businesses achieve success.

Contact us for free consultation.

That should be an easy decision, since you’re

just starting your business and you probably

don’t have extra barrels full of money. Rent. It’s

considerably less of a strain on your limited

start-up budget, and until your business is up

and running, you really don’t know what to expect.

Sure, your business could soar from day

one, but then again, even after all your research,

you may end up with the right store in

the wrong place. Better to leave yourself the option

to ease your way out of the situation.

Leasing also protects you

against the unforeseen. Suppose

the neighborhood undergoes an

unexpected change. What if the

city decides to embark on a oneyear

project widening the road

that winds past your site?

You could starve because of the inconvenience

it causes shoppers. Leasing allows you the luxury

of relocating your business should something

about the location you select not live up

to your expectations.

That said, recognize that your lease, or mortgage

if you choose to purchase your site, will

likely represent the single greatest fixed cost in

running your business. For many retailers, location

is the make-or-break factor in their business.

You want the best possible location, and

you need a landlord or seller who will work

with you and share some of the financial burden

and risk, with the promise of being paid

back during the first year while you grow your

business. In the process you also want to make

sure your interests are fully protected, should

you ever need to sell or close the store.

DETERMINING WHAT YOU NEED

IN A STORE LOCATION

Your responses to the following questions

will help you narrow your search for a

location to places that best match your needs.

• Store name or type:

• Products sold:

• Planned days & hours of operation:

• Required utility connections:


• Store departments:

• Types of displays you will use

on the sales floor:

• Estimated total space needs,

in square footage:

• Amount used for: sales floor; warehouse;

office; employee area

DESCRIBE YOUR IDEAL STORE

Get out your notebook and describe your ideal

store. Item by item, list the features you want

and need. At minimum, how much space for

the showroom? For the office? For the warehouse?

What kind of display area will make the

best presentation of your merchandise? Is it important

you have large windows, or will a simple

sign tell passersby all they need to know?

Does your store need to be on the first floor, or

could you rely on customers walking up or

down a set of steps? Is your store a stand-alone

destination, to which people will drive? Then

they’ll need places to park. Will it be helped

greatly by the presence of other stores, some

selling similar merchandise? Review these answers,

along with your notes on the customers

you need to reach, and where they live.

your area. This is work you must do yourself.

It’s your observations that will enable you to

make an informed decision when selecting a

site. If your earlier research indicates certain

areas are convenient to the types of consumers

who’ll support your store concept, visit them,

NARROW YOUR SEARCH TO AN

INDIVIDUAL SHOPPING AREA

Compare the features of individual malls,

blocks, or shopping centers within the general

area. Here are some questions to ponder. Is the

setting attractive? Does the look of the buildings

work with your store concept? A look of

glass and chrome lends itself to a trendy fashion

boutique better than to an antiques store.

Browse through the existing stores in buildings,

malls, or shopping centers with vacancies.

What’s your first impression walking through

the doors? Any foul or sharp odors? Do the

spaces feel open or confined? Do you have

trouble adjusting to the light?

If there are no apparent vacancies in an area

you like, ask store owners if any store space

IS THE EXTERIOR

WELCOMING TO CUSTOMERS?

Record your impressions of the exterior. In a

mall or shopping strip, a location with good

visibility could be one of your best marketing

tools. How does the place look to passersby?

Are the windows large enough to let people

know what type of business it is? Do they leave

ample room for display of merchandise? Is

there a visible place for your sign? If it’s a street

location, how far is it from parking? Are the

sidewalks wide enough to encourage people to

walk along the street? Does the location carry

any potential liabilities? What’s the condition

of the sidewalk and the exterior of the building?

Must shoppers climb stairs to enter the

building? Is it accessible to the handicapped?

Are the storefront and parking lot well lit? Is

there a place in the back where you can accept

deliveries? How secure is that?

DOES THE INTERIOR HAVE

EVERYTHING YOU NEED?

Proceed with an inspection of the interior. First

consider the floor layout. An open, unencumbered

space easily adapts to any store concept.

If there are permanent fixtures, shelving, or angles,

you may need to adapt your store to them.

Look closely at the ceiling and


floors for signs of water damage

or leaks. Do the same with

any plumbing connections that

enter or leave the building.

Ask a lot of questions. What kind of wiring

does the building have? Will it handle your

needs? Think ahead. If your business grows,

will you be able to expand your space as

needed?

Look At The Site’s Relationship

To The Local Area

When you’re relatively satisfied a site offers

what you’re looking for, step back and reconsider

the site in relation to its surroundings. Are

there stores nearby that will add to or detract

from your store? Some specialty stores can effectively

piggyback on a major retailer or related

products in the area. The larger store is

the main draw, but it stocks only a sampling of

what the specialty dealer carries in depth. This

can help sales. Does such a store exist? If so, is

there easy access between the two? Can you

place signs where they will draw attention to

your store?

On the street, the direction

a store faces


can affect store traffic

and the retailer’s utility

bills. A store facing

north is easier to cool

in summer, but needs

more heat in the winter for lack of the sun’s

warming rays. Summer shade attracts sidewalk

shoppers; winter shade can disperse them.

Conversely, a store facing south is always well

lit with natural light. The owner may need an

awning in summer, but sunshine on a winter’s

day will add warmth and appeal. continued...

OBSERVE PEDESTRIAN &

AUTO TRAFFIC PATTERNS

The next facet of your site investigation puts

you in the observation post. Stop by the site a

few times during the week and monitor the

traffic patterns, during both day and night.


Note the types of crowds, looking for the people

you’ve already identified as your ideal customer.

Do they appear, and if so, when? If the

only time your ideal shopper strolls through is

early Saturday morning, you may not be able

Page 50 AUGUST 2019 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

to attract enough shoppers to support your

business. Many purchases are made on impulse,

but your customer must be in the area

before that sudden urge to buy strikes. Note the

type of crowds that gather in the area toward

the evening hours. A group of boisterous

teenagers may make you suddenly nostalgic

for your own reckless youth, but they will also

keep certain shoppers away.

If the storefront sits on the street, monitor the

auto traffic. A busy road can prove too busy if

the pace of traffic discourages drivers to slow

down and turn in to your parking lot. Is there

a turning lane, and a progression of traffic

lights to regulate the flow? These can actually

encourage people to pull off the road for a

shopping diversion. How visible is the store

and storefront from the road? continued...

With outdoor and stand-alone locations, be

sure to check the night lighting. A dimly lit, inaccessible

parking lot will discourage some

night shoppers and invite after-hour thieves.

GETTING DOWN TO THE DETAILS

You’ve done all

your homework,

and you’re still

e n c o u r a g e d ?

Relay your interest

to the landlord

or his

authorized representative

and inquire

about the property. Once you know the

space is available, your first and foremost question

will be “How much?”

THERE’S MORE TO COSTS

THAN JUST RENT

Be aware, though, what initially appears to be

a big bargain can cost money and business in

the long run. With a conventional store, location

serves as a main marketing tool. The

wrong location will put you out of business.

Visibility, accessibility, traffic patterns, and the

condition of an area all help determine rent.

Corner properties always command top dollar.

Stores along the main drag rent for much more

than those straddling a back alley.

Finding out what it will cost you to rent

some space entails much more than

establishing the monthly rent.

It’s your responsibility to determine what the

rental agreement includes, and how far the

landlord will go to accommodate you. For

starters, what will you be getting for your

money? Commercial leases are usually based

on square footage. You should be paying only

for usable floor space that can be carpeted. Get

out your tape measure and make sure you can

use every foot you’ll be paying for. Then find

out what the landlord will be willing to do for

you. Will he take care of or contribute toward

renovating the space for your needs, or will he

simply supply you with an empty shell? What

will that include, in terms of utility connections

and other services? Will you be obligated to return

the building to the condition you find it in

if you ever decide to vacate? Is the store paneled

or carpeted? Who pays to upgrade the utility

service so it meets your needs? How are the

utilities billed? Are they included in the rental

fee or billed separately? What about security

patrol, alarm systems, and trash hauling? Will

these carry additional, separate charges? What

type of insurance does the landlord provide?

What will you, as store owner, be

required to carry? The answers

can all provide you with points

for negotiation when you sit

down with the landlord to work

out an agreement.

INVESTIGATE THE SITE’S

COMMERCIAL HISTORY & ZONING

Before you enter into final negotiations

of a lease or sales contract, investigate

the commercial history and zoning

status of the property.

How many stores occupied the site in the last 5

years? A progression of tenants says, proceed

with caution. You may want to contact the

owners of some of those businesses, particularly

if one tried a store like yours at that location.

Be sure to check the certificate of

occupancy for the space that interests you and

make sure you can use the site as you intend.

Sop by city hall to find out the zoning status of

the property. Explain

what type of business


you plan to locate there

and ask if there are any

restrictions that should

concern you. Also inquire

about any restrictions

on the size or

an

placement of signs or

billboard advertising at the location. A store

that can’t place signs is anonymous; in retailing,

anonymity invites failure.

While at city hall, remember to ask if there are

plans for immediate construction in the area, or

any long-term improvement projects that will

block or detour traffic in the area. Any of these

could disrupt normal business long enough to

put the start-up business at risk.

IF YOU’RE A BUYER, YOU’LL

NEED TO DIG EVEN DEEPER

If you’re intent on purchasing a location

for your store, you’ll need to undertake

even more thorough investigation.

FORUM WORKSHOP

Unless you find an outstanding bargain, buying

your store site adds to the financial burden

that goes with starting a store. Ideally you want

to do whatever you can to minimize the risks

during your first year of operation. So if you

must buy the site, scrutinize everything about

the site and your sales agreement closely to ensure

you get exactly what you expect, with no

hidden liabilities.

In addition to the history of the site, zoning,

and possible future development, you’ll need

to investigate the structure itself. Ask that the

seller produce an engineer’s report on the condition

of the building. Make sure the sale includes

rights to adjacent parking. Examine the

building with an eye to one day expanding

your business. Will the usable space grow with

your success, or could you one day face costly

reconstruction or relocation? Any immediate re

novation required will greatly add to your setup

costs. Things you must do to upgrade or improve

the facility should be considered points

of negotiation when setting the sale price.

NEGOTIATING THE LEASE

OR SALES CONTRACT

Understand that before you sign


any contract, there are several

things that it’s in your best interest

to negotiate. The standard

commercial lease is entirely prolandlord.

You want a contract

that’s fair, one that will help you give your store

its best start. As you enter into negotiations,

recognize the commercial real estate market is

now a tenants’ market.

TRY TO ADJUST THE LEASE

TERMS TO MEET YOUR NEEDS

The landlord should be eager to accommodate

you. Seek a lease that allows flexibility, with an

option to renew written into the agreement.

The ideal situation will be a 5-year lease with

the right of renewal for another 5 years at the

end of the initial period. Recognize that a shortterm

lease can be more


dangerous for you than a

long-term lease. With the

short-term lease, however,

the landlord enjoys considerable

leverage once your

business is up and running,

wholly dependent on its location.

Again, you

fect,

never

know how your business will fare until you

open the doors. After a year, you’ll know if

you’re in the right place.

If success arrives early, you may need to

expand your store into adjoining space, or

find larger facilities in the same building.

Ask for right of first refusal should adjoining

space become available. It’s within your rights

to request a radius clause, whereby the landlord

agrees not to lease space to other retailers

in direct competition for the same sales. Since

you’re starting a business, see if the landlord is

amenable to a graduated payment scale, with

your monthly rent increasing over time. Agree

on a date when a specific increase will take efat

least a year after you open your doors.

In today’s market you can look to your landlord

for help with other aspects of the start-up

as well. The cost of renovation will prove one of

your most expensive out-of-pocket investments.

See how much of that expense your

landlord will assume, or finance. It may add to

your rent, but it will relieve you of some initial

financial burden.

$¢$¢$¢$¢$¢$¢$

When negotiating, always keep your longrange

interests in mind. You want to secure the

right to assign the lease, without liability,

should you decide to sell your business or close

shop. Whenever an action on your part will require

the landlord’s consent, you want an assurance

the decision will be made in a

reasonable and timely fashion.

RESPECT THE LANDLORD’S

NEEDS, HOWEVER

Throughout negotiations, respect the seller’s or

landlord’s interests as well as your own. All negotiations

are a process of give and take. You

need space, the landlord needs to fill it. He has

no guarantee of a permanent tenant until your

business succeeds. Asking him to tie up his

property with that uncertainty poses a risk he

may want to be compensated for. You may be

asked to pay more in rent in

order to enjoy that option.

Work toward a common

ground that fairly takes into

account the needs and interests,

long- and short-term, of

both parties. continued...

MAKE SURE ALL THE

BASES ARE COVERED

MAKE SURE YOU CONSULT

YOUR ATTORNEY

Everything that concerns you as the store

owner should be expressed in the lease or contract:

your responsibilities, what the landlord

agrees to supply, the occupancy date, the structure

of the payment schedule, how any additional

expenses for utilities or maintenance will

be determined, your rights regarding potential

subleasing or assigning of the space to a third

party, and an acceptable method for terminating

the lease by either party. In the event that

you and your landlord should butt heads over

something related to this agreement, the contract

should also spell out both parties’ right to

arbitrate or mediate your differences through

an independent agent.

Hotcig Kubi Pod

Starter Kit 550mAh

Before you agree to any contract, consult an attorney.

Legalese is a language in itself, and you

need the services of an interpreter. When it

comes to fine print, follow your attorney’s advice

... to the letter. Your attorney should be involved

throughout the negotiation process to

make sure your rights and interests are protected.

Have him or her explain every clause of

the contract, and any riders to it, so you know

exactly what you’re agreeing to. When it comes

to negotiating and signing

contracts, a competent

business attorney

is your best protection.

SIGN AS A CORPORATE OFFICER,

NOT AN INDIVIDUAL

One more note about the contract. We’ll discuss

your options for structuring your business to

your best interests later. But at this point you

should understand that it’s in your best interest

to sign the lease as the principal of a corporation

(your business,) not as an individual. Even

if you structure your business in some other

way, use a corporation name when signing the

lease, even if the corporation exists soley for

that purpose. What if your store goes bankrupt

in its third month but you’ve signed on for the

rest of the rent, whereas if you signed as the

principal of a corporation, your personal obligation

is nil.

LEASEHOLD IMPROVEMENTS

After signing the lease, you’ll be able to turn

your attention to creating your store. If you

think store design is a do-it-yourself project, an

area where you can cut corners, forget it. Until

your store’s personality is established through

advertising or word of mouth, its look will be

your only way to convey its unique qualities to

shoppers. The design will invite them in or

keep them away. Approach design with an eye

for economy, and your “savings” could deny

you success.

DESIGN FOR SUCCESS,

& DON’T FORGET SECURITY

Effective store design may seem easy, but

there’s much more to it than putting products

on shelves and racks. Here’s another area in

which it may be best to turn to outside help, at

least in the initial design and setup of the showroom

floor. A professional store designer brings

a knowledge of the psychology of color and

lighting, and understands how to direct traffic

through the store. Such visual cues will help a

retailer realize the maximum sales potential for

his sales floor.

If you decide to design the store yourself,

spend a lot of time in other stores exploring the

details that contribute to effective design. Take

notes on how your senses

are stimulated as you move

through the store. Recognize

how color promotes a

mood, and lighting directs

your attention to what the

store wants to promote. How are the themes of

the main displays reinforced throughout the

shop or department? What do you find to be

the comfortable heights for racks and shelving?

What types of signs make the best floor directory

to products and departments?

There’s a deliberate decision behind the place

ment of every product in a successful store.

Highly profitable but low-cost impulse items

can usually be found in several areas of the

store, most visibly right near the front counter.

FORUM WORKSHOP

A product that’s much in demand is often

placed in the back, compelling shoppers to

walk through the store and visually sample

everything else the store has to


offer. Related products and accessory

items are placed

nearby as well as in other areas

to give shoppers several opportunities

to consider them.

While in the stores, also note how different retailers

address security issues in the setup of

the sales floor. Checkout counters, almost always

staffed, typically sit where the employee

has a direct line of sight to all areas of the store.

Sometimes this vantage point is near the front

door, or in a counter kiosk slightly elevated

above the rest of the sales floor. In stores with a

lot of angles, concave mirrors or video cameras

serve as practical and psychological deterrents

to pilferage. Security poses such a critical issue,

and protection against theft and pilferage is

such an important consideration, the start-up

retailer should seek expert advice. Store designers

bring a thorough knowledge of security issues

to the projects. If you’re not using one, at

the very least set up a consult with a local security

firm, preferably one specializing in commercial

or retail accounts. You’ll find them

listed online and in the phone book.

FLEXIBLE DESIGNS WILL

TRANSLATE INTO SAVINGS

Taking all these into consideration,

you should plan a certain degree of

flexibility into your store design.

The first and most obvious reason is one of economics.

Permanent fixtures and renovation are

expensive undertakings. You don;t know yet if

this site will be the permanent home for your

store. What you spend to improve that site will

only serve you in that location. If you decide to

relocate, you’ll be making the same investment

all over again. A modular approach to design,

with portable fixtures and displays, also allows

you to maintain a certain degree of freshness in

the look of the place.


While shoppers expect a certain consistency in

a store’s look, they respond well to occasional

redesign. That may be as simple as highlighting

a different product in your main display area,

or moving your racks to redirect floor traffic

from time to time. When you redesign a store,

you invite shoppers to explore the place anew,

and in the process, hopefully discover some of

the products they may have missed before. A

flexible, modular approach to design will allow

you to move displays and departments easily. It

can prove less expensive in the short term, and

more beneficial to the retailer over the long

term. It represents one of the most sensible

ways you can guarantee maximum return from

a necessary investment.

SOLICIT 3 DETAILED BIDS

FROM QUALIFIED CONTRACTORS

Unless you’ll be handling the renovation

work yourself, you’ll need to supply

those you hire to do the work a set of

blueprints for what you want done.

These plans should be detailed

diagrams, with exact specifications

on where work is to be

done and what materials are to

be used. Here’s another reason to seek the help

of a store designer or architect. You can’t expect

anyone to work from the rough sketch you

scrawled on a napkin and realize your vision

of the store. It’s fair to neither you nor the contractor.

The more specific you are about what

you want done with the space, the more detailed

and accurate will be the bids you receive

from contractors.

Never assign construction work based on a single

bid. What contractors charge, and what

they try to get away with, varies greatly. Two

bids are nice, three is ideal. When the bids are

submitted, make sure to ask each contractor for

proof she carries adequate insurance. Always

ask for names of people she has done similar

work for in the past. Call these references and

visit their sites. After you’ve had the chance to

review the bids and check references, give the

job to the contractor you feel most comfortable

with. That doesn’t necessarily mean the lowest

bidder. After picking one, approach the contractor

about financing the work. Explain your

situation as the owner of a new business. See

how much the contractor will work with you,

to ease your financial burden. In the final bid,

the contractor should describe exactly what she

will do, her fee, what materials or permits it

covers, and when she will complete the work.

As protection, you need to insert a penalty

clause – which specifies your options if the

work isn’t completed on schedule – before you

accept the contractor’s bid.

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

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

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

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

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

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

advantage recognizing DIAMOND VENEER as fakes!

This revolutionary Coating concept allows women (and Man) to wear the

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

In general, don’t agree to any work at an hourly

rate, even when there’s a ceiling on hours. You

could exhaust your renovation budget and end

up with a job that’s only partially completed.

KEEP AN EYE ON THE WORK

WHILE IT’S BEING DONE

Try your best to be around

while the construction is taking

place. If you can’t be there

all the time, get in the habit of

popping in unannounced to

check on the progress of the

job. When informed something is broken or

worn and must be replaced, ask to see it. When

the project is completed, thoroughly inspect it.

Pay promptly when satisfied, and not until

then. Once you’ve signed the check, you’ve

surrendered your leverage, short of legal proceedings,

with the contractor. When the contractor

is through, you want to spend your time

setting up shop, not finishing her job.

THE BUSINESS PLAN

Can you tell me how to get from where I am to

where you are ... without a map? Creating a

success as a retailer without a business plan can

prove just as challenging. I could find you,

eventually, were I to spend a good part of the

future wandering the planet. And success

could be yours if you never commit your goals

to paper. It’s just that committing a plan to writing

makes it so much easier to know where the

store is going, and how far it has come. With a

written plan you won’t do so much stumbling

around in the dark.

FORUM WORKSHOP

After you’ve identified a lucrative market

niche, and scouted locations and real estate

prices, you can get to work finalizing your

business plan. In reality, you’re developing aspects

of the plan as you conduct the research

that convinces you to open a specialty

store. Now it’s time to use


what you’ve learned to outline

the goals of your business and

how you intend to get there.

A well thought-out business plan can be your

most important resource when building your

business. It’s the toolbox containing all the information,

inspiration, and strategy for realizing

your dreams of independence. The plan

maps the store’s future, tracing the route

you’ve selected to your goals. It’s a journal of

the process and progress that gets you there, a

yardstick with which you can measure how far

you’ve traveled on the road to retail success. Finally,

the business plan serves as a compass

that tells you when you’ve wandered off

course, and directs you back onto the path that

leads to your goals as a store owner.

Your plan need not take the traditional form

advocated by business professionals for generations.

That form was designed with professional

investors in mind. It was drafted to put

your business in a context that a banker or venture

capitalist could understand. There’s no

need for you to do that now, simply because, as

we’ll see later, there’s no way the banker or

venture capitalist will lend you money to start

your business. But you do need to put your

plan in writing, for a variety of practical and

personal reasons.

As we’ll discuss, you’ll be approaching others

for financial support as you start your business.

They may not be members of the professional

investment community, but they will want to

know where their money is headed, and when

they should expect a return. Present them a

written plan, with detailed financial analysis

and projections, and they’ll be a little less leery

of the venture.


Whatever format you

choose for the document,

it should include

a statement of mission

– why the store exists –

and demonstrate you

have the credentials to

make the store concept

work.

The plan should demonstrate how you propose

to make your specialty store a success, and

what that will require in financial resources,

with a detailed breakdown of financial needs,

including the cost of start-up and annual operations,

as well as sales projections.

ON A PERSONAL LEVEL, A BUSINESS

PLAN PROVIDES A FOCUS FOR YOU

AND YOUR RETAIL VENTURE.

This written document should serve as your

business handbook, a guide to what you want

your store to become, and how to get there. It

should be so thorough, so comprehensive, that

you can turn to it repeatedly for an update on

your progress, advice on keeping the business

on track, and the inspiration to forge ahead.
