EVERYTHING E-CIG

THERE are alot of e-cig companies that have entered the market over

the last few years. Many of them are run of the mill with products that

are not unique or worse yet with pricing that affords very poor mark-up

for retailers.

THAT is in the past! Logic Wholesale has one of the largest selections

of everything for e-cig retailers. With one-stop shopping you will be able

to buy starter kits., tanks, liquids and parts and accessories.

THE company was established in 2008 and welcomes new wholesale

accounts. They are headquartered in the USA (this is VERY important) and

will ship anywhere in the world -- and quickly.

Special: V2 Quick Charger $17.95

PEOPLE WEARING CLOTHES AGAIN

FINALLY the pandemic is passing and people are getting on with their

lives. If you are a clothing retailer you know the devastation that the last

year was caused to the fashion industry. The time of pajama and sweatpants

wearing is over. People around the world are opening their closet doors and

putting on actual clothing once again! And with that comes the opportunity

to sell them new dud.s

MANY people will be finding out that perhaps their size has now changed,

some smaller but most larger. Others are going to wnat to splurge and

buy new looks for themselves to celebrate their freedoms of going back to

work or to socialize.

THIS month’s special os a beautiful Mandarin collar long sleeve designer

top for just 3.99! The company is also featuring many items at big 50%

discounts to make room for new goods. They also have a special clearance

on shoes (remember those?) with items starting at under $10.00

GOING ONCE...GOING TWICE...

MANY businesses have not survived the last year and unfortunately

have had to or will have to sell off their assets. While this is unfortunate

for them, it leaves a great opportunity for businesses and people to bid

on their merchandise and belongings via auctions that are conducted

regularly.

KNOWING how and where is the key to buying at auctions. Our

updated Auction Buyers Guide features all types of auctions from jewelry,

land, cars and boats to real estate and business items.

THIS concise directory lists all of the infornation you need to place

yourself on auction bidders lists in every state. There is nothing further

to purchase. Everything is included for $39.95. PDF or print.

Walmart Online Store Unprofitable

WALMART has been trying hard to make their online store profitable and apparently has had

a tough time doing so. It is now borrowing from Amazon’s playbook in order to expand and take

a bigger market share.

If you were to search for tee shirts, for example, you would get a wide assortment of available

tees being sold directly from Walmart. Additionally you will now also be offered a myriad of tees

from third party sellers. That’s because Walmart has been quickly expanding the number of third

party sellers on its site.

OVER the last year, it has been adding to its network of merchants. Recently it opened the

platform up to sellers outside of the United States for the first time and is trying to lure even more

vendors by offering incentives like zero commissions for a month.

WALMART’S marketplace has been around since 2009, but has only recently become a big

priority for the company to focus on as it battles Amazon online. Up until now, e-commerce sales

accounts for less than 10% of all sales at Walmart; but, it is growing rapidly as Walmart shifts from its

brick-and-mortar roots to reach customers online. They are aiming to grow its marketplace to give

customers as many choices during their shopping experience as possible.

RIGHT now the Walmart online business is not profitable so adding third party sellers will allow

the company to make more money. Not only will the company make money from the commissions

on sales fees it collects from sellers, it can then up-sell merchants on more products: ads, delivery

services and even lines of credit through their partnership with Goldman Sachs.

THERE is a long way to go to catch up to Amazon, which has more than 1.9 mi,ion active third

party sellers. Walmart has not disclosed figures, but according to sources, it has a way to go before

profitability.

BY opening the platform to overseas third party sellers the company also risks a problem with

poor quality or counterfeit items. A US Government study from a couple of years ago reported that

over 88% of counterfeit goods coming into the United States came from China and Hong Kong.

Walmart is of course aware of this and has slowly tested the overseas partners platform. We are

told that there is a very rigid process for vendors to join on the platform.

MANY sellers say that they joined the Walmart.com platform to very simply expand the “eyeballs

on their goods” and try to expand their sales. There is a great potential for vendors when they add

a high profile selling machine like Walmart to their marketing channels. Walmart.com boasts that

they receive over 120 million shoppers on their site every week. This is a tremendous amount of

traffic that most retailers can only dream of.

WE have read reports from retailers that have signed onto the Walmart platform that they have

been successful with the integration into this channel. Some even went as far to say that they were

frustrated with Amazon because of the stiff competition, often from foreign sellers undercutting

prices. This, of course, may also be an upcoming problem on the Walmart site as well. But for now

the time is right to take advantage of the opportunity to market through the goliath.

S t o R e

THE MEN AND WOMEN

IN THE MIDDLE

Continued from last issue...

Operating Your

RETAIL STORE

work in the field and spend a lot of time traveling.

Distributors take orders by phone, fax, or

modem. They may hear from more retailers in

a day than the field sales staff can visit in a

week.

Other companies rely on independent sales

representatives – commonly called reps – to develop,

service, and sell to their retail network.

Reps function much like a company’s own

sales force. Usually they represent the product

lines of companies too small for a dedicated

sales staff, or for suppliers without sales staff in

a particular region of the country. Reps usually

handle only one brand in a category. They may

represent several suppliers in an industry as

long as those products are not in direct competition.

This can give them a much broader sense

of trends; reps are especially well attuned to

what’s happening at retail.

Most salespeople don’t actually deliver the

goods they sell. Your order will get passed on

to the supplier’s own warehouse, or to a distributor

who fills the order. Some distributors

function as shipping warehouses for the manufacturer.

Others operate as product wholesalers,

a retailer to the retailer. Some

distributors publish a catalog detailing the variety

of products available for order and delivery.

Since they’re more often specialists in a category

rather than a particular manufacturer’s

line of product, distributors often have the best

insight into market trends. Other salespeople

Page 32 JUNE 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

While their primary function is to sell, anyone

serving as the supplier’s middle man should be

regarded as an ally in developing your store’s

marketing program. They’re a good source for

information on what products will be promoted,

when, and how. They can help you acquire

everything related to product support,

from literature and ad slicks to co-op dollars for

local advertising.

Occasionally you may deal with an individual

who actually makes the products he wants

your store to sell. This is especially true for

stores marketing arts and crafts or other oneof-a-kind

products. The often self-employed

producers of these goods usually lack the resources

to extend the payment terms available

from distributors and manufacturers. The best

they can do is agree to supply you with goods

on consignment. The maker of the craft sets her

price, and you’re free to add whatever margin

seems reasonable. When the product sells, the

artist gets paid. This strategy benefits both parties,

especially when either is building a business.

Selling on consignment gives the supplier

a market to prove the worth of the product. For

you, it’s a risk-free opportunity to experiment

with new inventory.

DEFINED BY PRICE

Regardless of how your store acquires its stock,

one of the toughest challenges facing you is establishing

a pricing strategy. Price sends consumers

a loud message about who you want to

be. People shop specialty stores for the combination

of selection and service not found elsewhere.

They expect to pay a little more for that

privilege. Pricing should be a reasonable response

to the trends in the market and an acknowledgment

that your store offers

something more. The specialty store owner

who cuts margins close in a pitch for sales undercuts

the reasons the store exists.

PLATFORM Price must allow room to cover expenses and

provide a living wage. If the store concept cannot

deliver that much return, you chose the

wrong niche. Consider

the expenses


to be covered by the

difference between

what you pay and

sell goods for: rent

or mortgage, insurance,

utilities, computers, advertising, upkeep

and improvements on the store. Add to that

your responsibilities as an employer. Staff deserves

a decent wage. A benefits package is

smart, too; it’s cheaper to hold on to your old

employees than find, hire, and train new ones.

Only after you’ve met all those obligations can

you start thinking about your own salary. So if

your pricing doesn’t allow room to cover all the

basics, there won’t be much of anything in the

till by the time you dip into it for your compensation.

THE MASTER OF ALL TRADES

JUNE 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

forumworkshop

FORUM WORKSHOP

Getting paid is but one among your many concerns.

Large retailers have people to worry

about every aspect of the business. You must be

a master of all trades; management and marketing;

advertising and promotion; purchasing

and collections; display and delivery; selection

and service; personnel and customer relations.


Who said self-employment

had anything to

do with freedom from

work? All those little

responsibilities others

leave at the office belong

to the small business owner to take with

him wherever he goes. Success as an independent

retailer requires a clairvoyant’s eye and a

fisherman’s patience. Not only must you sense

what the customers want, but when and how

much.

Every retail operation, every type of store, is a

seasonal business. For most the holiday rush is

the make-or-break period. Others depend on

summer vacations or the whims of fashion with

the changing seasons. Knowing what to stock,

when, and how to promote it for maximum

sales is a survival skill you’ll need to refine,

over time, into an art.

The dynamics of retailing offer

opportunities to those rare individuals

with a mind for business and

a personality for people.

muster enthusiasm about surrendering the security

If you can answer yes to these questions – and

that doesn’t scare you – you’ve got the attitude

to make it as a retail entrepreneur. For if there’s

one trait shared by every entrepreneur, evident

in every success story you’ve ever read, it’s a

singular determination to pursue one’s dream,

FORUM WORKSHOP forumworkshop

Hard work isn’t enough to secure your store’s

future, though. There are other business skills

and personality traits that will help you bring

your dream to life. What skills you lack, you

can develop. But without an entrepreneur’s unshakable

drive, the challenges that go into

opening your store will overwhelm you.

THE ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

The entrepreneur


doesn’t get discouraged.

You can be stubborn

to a fault, but

you must be honest

enough to admit

when you’re wrong.

You must be goal-oriented, and willing to do yourself

whatever is required to nurture your dream to

life. You’ll need to stick with a strategy as long

as you’re convinced it best serves your goal.

But if you’re shown a better way, you’ll need to

eagerly surrender yesterday’s plan for today’s

solution.

If you’re an entrepreneur, what will matter is

success, on your terms. You’ll need to believe

in yourself and your business dreams, absolutely.

Your motivation must be the opportunity

to realize a personal vision, not convincing

the rest of the world of your vision’s merits.

What the world thinks now shouldn’t matter to

you; the world will catch up, eventually. You’re

preoccupied with achieving personal goals that

will bring you a more rewarding career. Your

commitment is complete; and you’ll throw

into achieving that goal, entirely.

Your enthusiasm should be


contagious, because you love

what you’re doing. It also

springs from your drive to

provide meaningful service

to the community through retailing.

The entrepreneur finds the better way

of doing things, and draws rewards and fulfillment

when the public recognizes his contribution.

These are spiritual rewards, the emotional

satisfaction a business brings that you can’t define

in dollars and cents.

You’re in it for the money, surely. But that

should be more the symbol than substance of

your success. Your drive demonstrates your

dissatisfaction with the statues quo. The security

of a nine-to-five job, a measured climb up

the career ladder – that’s right for somebody

Page 42 JUNE 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

else, not you. You’ll work longer hours, and

perhaps make less money, for the independence

that comes only with controlling your

own career.

Psychologists, psychiatrists, and academics

have long tried to identify the personal traits

that separate the entrepreneur from the crowd.

More than anything else, their studies suggest

the entrepreneur is an individual driven by

challenge. The entrepreneur is self-made, not

born. If there’s a trait common to all, it’s singular

dedication to the hard work that will realize

their particular dream. Entrepreneurs come in

all shapes, colors, and sizes; some young and

some old; men and women; and at every skill

level. What all entrepreneurs share is a strong

sense of faith in themselves, their abilities, and

their vision.

The entrepreneur is the athlete of the business

world. The individual who summons every resource,

every skill and experience, and patiently

applies all of this to reaching his goal.

He cherishes the challenge as much as the

progress in making his way. The entrepreneur

is at once the contestant and opponent, runner

and referee. It’s her race and prize. Tempered

by disappointment, the entrepreneur never

loses sight of the goal, no matter what the odds.


Everyone loves a

success; no one

cares about a success

in the making.

Until you arrive,

you’ll face a long

and lonely road.

The climb to the

sesses

top, to the realization of your dream, is one demanding

self-reliance. You should know, or

you’ll learn, to trust none but yourself. Entrepreneurial

experience teaches the essential

truth of the proverb “If you want something

done, do it yourself.” The reach for independence

and self-determination is the entrepreneur‘s

response to the world. If you’re truly an

entrepreneur , you want more for yourself than

anyone else can deliver. In the early stages of

building the business, you alone are the keeper

of the dream.

You’ll make demands of everyone, but no more

than of yourself. The challenges you’ll face are

greatest at the outset, but they never abate. Certain

characteristics, innate traits, tilt the scales

in favor of success for the individual who posthem.

You need a positive attitude, a certain cockiness

built of confidence, unshakable determination

and enthusiasm. Beyond that, the skills required

for success can be developed or hired.

What separates the achievers from the aspirants

is awareness of their own limitations.

Stubborn to a fault, single-minded, immune to

criticism, you must also possess the instinctive

sense to recognize when to turn to outside help.

That’s a point of strength, not an admission of

defeat. Nature endows

but few of us with everything

required to make a

success of our dreams.

The entrepreneur is the

one who can build on

strengths by compensating

for weaknesses.

Page 46 JUNE 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

Recognizing which skills you have, and which

you lack, is a necessary first step in that process.

The retail entrepreneur must be both an effective

business manager and a skilled marketer.

Your management and marketing skills will either

support the vision through to success, or

crumble from the stress that results when one

takes on more than one should, or strives to do

more than one could.

THE RETAIL MANAGER

Every business depends on an effective manager,

the decision maker who directs the operation,

supervises the staff, plans for the future,

and ensures the entire operation runs smoothly.

The retail manager must effectively manage

store operations and manage people. Each re-

quires certain skills and attitude.

Review the following sections to help identify

the skills you need to improve or develop if

you are to give your store a fair chance of success.

BEING THE BOSS MEANS YOU

HAVE TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY

As the owner/operator, you’re heir


to every responsibility related to

managing your store. You have all

the responsibility, all the authority

for building success. You own

whatever headaches and triumphs

the business brings.

As your business grows, or if business start-up WHERE’S

resources allow it, you may decide to hire staff

to handle some of the key areas of responsibility

like running your business office, supervising

the sales floor, or buying inventory. But if

you’re like most start-up retailers, you can expect

to wear all hats and catch all the grief and

what little praise falls your way. As the manager,

you’ll handle all the decision making related

to running the business; everything from

buying light bulbs to balancing the books and

seeing Uncle Sam gets his due. Each area of

management responsibility demands a certain

level of awareness and skills, if not absolute expertise.

You’ll Need to Manage the Money

WHERE’S THE MONEY COMING FROM?

IT GOING? WHAT’S LEFT?

From long before the

store formally opens its

doors to closing day, finances

should top

your concerns. Just as

money drives the national

economy, cash

flow keeps your store

on the road to success.

You don’t need to be a certified public accountant,

but familiarity with basic principles of

bookkeeping is strongly advisable. You should

know how to project costs, read and keep a balance

sheet, and analyze financial records for insight

into the business. Your financial

responsibilities will also entail controlling

spending activities, budgeting expenses, and

reconciling records and accounts. Managing finances

means accurately projecting how much

funding the store will need, and when.

These skills can be self-taught from articles like

this one, learned in night courses, and mastered

through experience. You can also make it a

computer-learning process, developing your

skills as you learn how to run your business

with a computer system. Computer hardware

and software should be considered the basic

tools of business management in the 21st century.

For now, it’s enough to say few retailers

will be able to conduct business without them,

and remain competitive. Computers are work

savers. The right program, or application, will

help organize all management responsibilities,

do the books, reconcile accounts, and provide

you with up-to-the-minute insight into any aspect

of the business.

You’ll Need to Manage the Inventory

All stores sell something. Products are your

business, so everything related to what you sell

and why is your decision. Managing inventory

begins with selecting the right product mix.

You'll need to respond to trends, seasonal and

otherwise. What everyone wants this month,

you won’t be able to give away next month.

You must know how much to order, when, and

then when to reorder. When something starts

to languish on the shelves, you must sense

when it’s time to drop prices and cut losses.

To a certain degree, experience will endow such

instincts. From the beginning, though, you

should develop a practice of maintaining accurate

inventory records. Any retailer who enters

business today thinking

he can keep the stock

records in his head is

inviting in thieves or

misfortune. In either

event, you won’t really

know how much you

lost. Again, a computer

system, as an organizational

tool and time

saver, is recommended.

Success as a retailer in the 21st century will owe

much to the science of specialization. One of

your ongoing challenges will be to keep pace

with the latest developments in your category.

It won’t be enough for you to visit trade shows

for an annual update on your industry.

FORUM WORKSHOP forumworkshop

Your viability as the expert demands you constantly

sift through manufacturer announcements,

distributor catalogs, trade journals, and

the business section of the local paper in pursuit

of the next competitive advantage. With

that, you’ll continually monitor the competition,

both through their advertising and inside

their stores.

As inventory manager, you’ll pull together the

product mix that differentiates your store from

every other store handling the same products.

Once that mix is determined, and the products

are in stock, you’ll also need to set up displays

that draw shoppers to the products. You’ll decide

what receives prominent play on the sales

floor, and when it’s appropriate to rotate the

merchandise.

If the sales strategy

includes telemarketing

sales or mail

order, inventory

management also entails

delivery service:

packing and shipping

products by the

cheapest carrier and making sure they reach

their destination. As if you didn’t have enough

to contend with.

You’ll Need to Manage People

Since retailing is a people business, you’ll need

to be a “people person”: an effective communicator,

ever the charmer, yet able to draw the line

and stand your ground when the situation demands

it.

FORUM WORKSHOP forumworkshop


Managing relations with

people will put you in

contact with 3 groups:

staff, suppliers’ representatives,

and customers.

When dealing

with anyone, the ability

to communicate directly

and effectively, in writing, person to person, or

over the phone, is the basis of rewarding relationships.

When you need to convey a point –

whether placing an order or setting employee

policy – the message should be above debate.

Managing staff requires responsiveness to their

needs. Effective managers inspire rather than

direct others. They let others know exactly

what is expected of them. They promote spirit

and team so people want to contribute to the

common good. A team is composed of individuals;

the smart manager recognizes the potential

and limits of each player. He asks without

demanding, and helps people test their skills

and develop their potential. Still, the effective

manager establishes definable benchmarks of

what’s expected and what will be accepted

from others. The manager remains gracious to

a point, but firm beyond that.

In dealings with suppliers, you’ll have certain

expectations, yet you’ll need to recognize your

own obligations. You must remain a loyal customer

as long as that loyalty is rewarded. You

must be open to suggestions on how to help

your business. You’ll need to be honest and

open with suppliers in all dealings, and demand

the same respect from those you trade

with.

FORUM WORKSHOP forumworkshop

These same attitudes will guide your relations

with customers. In the early history of most retail

operations, the store owner is the store to

shoppers. She’s the salesperson, the stock clerk,

and cashier all rolled into one smiling individual.

Enthusiasm always wins customers over.

In all dealings with customers, store personnel

should follow the owner’s lead and maintain a

degree of professionalism and warmth. No one

enjoys dealing with a retail salesperson who

comes across as slick and primed for any sale.


Managing people requires

combining the

psychological and intuitive

skills mentioned

earlier with an

ability to communicate

directly and effec-

pect

tively. You’ll need to be a skilled observer, able

to read faces and interpret body language, cognizant

of how the pause in the conversation defines

intent. You need the innate ability to hear

what shoppers say, and understand what they

aren’t saying.

Such skills must be cultivated. Your classroom

could be any public place where people interact.

But since stores are your future, that’s

where you should begin your education. Even

before you know what type of store you want

to run, visit all stores as an observer of the people

who work and shop them. Solicit the help

of salespeople. Test their knowledge and skills,

and learn from their responses. Your experiences

should give you direction and insight on

how to treat your customers, and how they exto

be treated.

Stop by the customer service

desk. Listen to shoppers

and their frustrations.

Watch their behavior. How

do the clerks handle them?

What works, and what

doesn’t? Is there anything

you would do to improve

relations?

The store owner who understands people,

what they want and how to please them, is one

whose business enjoys a head start. The skills

required for business management and marketing

can be acquired through training or experience.

Anyone who emphasizes those over

“people” skills is denying the reason all stores

exist and prosper: to serve the shopper.

Page 60 JUNE 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

The retail manager demonstrates a certain respect

for others and an interest in them. To sell

to people, you must like them, generally and

individually. After all, that’s what retailing is

all about: serving people.

THE RETAIL MARKETER

Put a good selection of products in a well-designed

store and you’ll soon starve ... if that’s

all you do. Why? Because before shoppers buy

from your store, they must know it’s there.

Telling them about the store, what it offers and

why they should shop there, is a make-or-break

challenge for you. As the store owner and its

business manager, your marketing responsibilities

are as critical to the fate of the business as

your management skills.

It’s not enough to develop, nurture, and manage

your vision of the perfect store, you must

also sell others on the concept, continually.

Whenever you seek financial backing for your

store – be it from banks to finance your dream

or the customers you hope will flock to your

latest sale – you’re involved in marketing.

Marketing is as much about public relations as

promotions. It shapes the best face you put before

your customers, the store image that invites

them in or keeps them away. The store

name, logo, design, and displays, special promotions

and sales, community involvement,

and advertising all fall within your realm as retail

marketer.

If you’re serious about going into business for

yourself, you already possess the basic skill of

marketing: confidence in your abilities and vision.

If you don’t believe in your store concept,

and question your ability, read no further. This

article is written for people who know they can

make it on their own. How can you hope to

convince others of your store if you don’t completely

believe in it yourself?

If you have that confidence, you shouldn’t have

trouble summoning the enthusiasm to promote

the concept. Effective marketing requires your

confidence and enthusiasm. These are qualities

you won’t find in any book, and you can’t get

them from night school. They must be part of

your psyche from the outset.

The successful retail marketer

has such a great store, with

such a great selection, that

she’s bursting to let the world

know where it is.

In getting that word out, you’ll be challenged

to use public relations, promotions, and advertising

to create the positive perceptions that

will win loyal customers for your store.

THE MYTH OF FREEDOM

Now that you’re familiar with the breadth of

responsibility that goes with running a store,

perhaps it’s worth pausing a moment to reflect

on your dream of freedom through retailing.

Page 64 JUNE 2021 | RETAILERS FORUM MAGAZINE

As demonstrated in the previous pages, running

your own retail store is all about hard

work, dedication to long days, and uncertain

gains. If your definition of freedom holds no

place for these, then you should not assume the

risks of starting your own retail business. The

freedom the store promises is the sense of liberation

that comes with controlling your destiny.

Certainly hard work is required, but you’re the

sole beneficiary of that dedication, not some

guy in the big office at the end of the hall on the

5th floor.


When you wake up

in the morning,

when you go to bed

at night, as the store

owner, you’re in

charge. You may

work long hours,

you may lose a few hairs, but your success, or

failure, is entirely your own. And when there’s

another generation hungry to climb up the career

ladder, there won’t be anyone who can

push you out of the business you nurtured and

brought to success yourself.

If that sounds like freedom to you, running

your own store definitely promises a better future

than the alternative.

HONING YOUR SKILLS

That said, the faster you develop your skills,

the faster you’ll be able to set that dream in motion.

One of the most valuable attributes you

can possess is an ability and willingness to recognize

personal limitations. When there’s

something you can’t do, better to hire the person

who can than stumble deeper into a maze

of your making.

Most of these skills required of you can be developed

on your own, either through self-education

or by attending evening courses or

professional development seminars. You must

be realistic in terms

of personal expectations

and obligations,

though. You

can study store design

at night school

for a semester, or hire a consultant who can do

the job in 2 weeks. Your time is your most important

asset. If you’re smart, you’ll manage

time as a limited resource.

Take a few moments to fill out the skills evaluation

chart following. Be honest and thorough

with your answers; you want to identify your

weaknesses so you can improve your skills.

Use your time now, as you begin investigating

your options and planning your store, to improve

your skills. Observe and learn from the

success of other retailers.

Talk to store owners about the business of retailing.

Fill out the skills assessment chart and

use it as a guide, then begin working to improve

your skills in the management areas

where you recognize your own weaknesses.

Enroll in business classes if your time allows,

or become a regular customer at the self-help

section of the local bookstore. If you already

own and use a computer, investigate accounting

and business management software. The

computer will prove an invaluable tool in every

phase of planning and managing your store,

and save you time in the process.

And time is the one commodity you’ll always

need more of. The varied responsibilities that

go with being the store owner/operator will

soon make ample demands on yours.

SKILLS ASSESSMENT CHART

CHOOSING YOUR MARKET

If you’ve read this far, you’re obviously serious

about opening your own store. The workload

described wasn’t enough to scare you off, and

you realize opening your own store carries

both risks and opportunity. From here you’ll

start putting theory into practice, and you’ll

plan your store.

The process begins with choosing your market.

Your store’s identity, and your future as the retail

entrepreneur, depends on the mix of products

you sell, the services you provide, and the

customers you serve. We’ll focus on the initial

research you should do as you investigate your

best retail opportunity. Ideally the store you

open builds on your present skills and interests,

the local and national trends, etc.

FORUM WORKSHOP

forumworkshop

Your first step is to begin


keeping a notebook or

set up a computer file

devoted to your retail

store. When you put

your thoughts and plans on paper, and can return

to them, they assume a greater sense of urgency.

Written plans and established goals

provide a yardstick with which to measure

your progress, or lack of it. For some of us,

writing things down helps organize our

thoughts and plans. Once recorded for posterity,

they’re there as a reference, either to jog

your memory or refamiliarize you with something

once learned but forgotten.

You can increase your chances for success if

you enter a product market already familiar to

you. So the investigation begins with an assessment

of what you bring to the venture in background,

skills, and interest. This information

should provide insight on the products or

product categories you are best suited to sell.

In your first entry, describe yourself: age, income,

family, interests, things you enjoy doing,

things you hate doing, and anything else you

would use to describe you. Include your major

accomplishments or disappointments, as well

as your personal and financial goals.

Next compose a few lines summarizing why

you want to go into business for yourself.

What’s so bad about your present job? How

will owning your business improve that? What

do you want from your store? What will it take

to make you happy? What strengths do you

bring to business?

What skills do you need to improve? What

kind of income are you looking for? What excites

you most about being in business for

yourself? Least? What do you expect to gain,

professionally and personally, from opening

your own store?

Finally, focus on your present thoughts about

your store. Do you have any particular store or

store type in mind, or do you just want to open

“a store?” What will you sell? Where will it be?

Who are your customers?

SELL WHAT YOU KNOW

Unless your plans for a career in retailing are

built around buying an established store, your

responses to the last set of questions demand a

great deal of time and thought and will evolve

in the process. Deciding what type of store

you’ll open, selecting your merchandise, and

identifying your market niche, when taken together,

amount to defining your business.

As mentioned earlier, today’s retail marketplace

offers distinct opportunities for the specialty

store concept. There are certain store

types that, given the right location, will usually

succeed: the combination convenience

store/gas station sitting

at the exit ramp of a


busy interstate; the pharmacy/health

and beauty

aid store across the street

from the major medical

center; and the newsstand/candy

shop at the

entrance of the commuter

railway station.

FORUM WORKSHOP forumworkshop

Unfortunately, the prime

real estate that all but

guarantees prosperity

for certain retail ventures

has by now all been

claimed. Sure, the occasional

new interstate or

major shopping mall

will still be built. But today the typical independent

retailer has to rely on more than location

to deliver customers. The store itself must

possess some compelling feature that makes

people want to shop there.

Today’s trend of huge, generalist discount

stores and price clubs creates a real need for the

smaller specialty store. You can, and must,

focus your business on a narrow segment of the

market, defined either by interest, age group,

or demographic profile. That’s the market upon

which you can build a business. It’s not enough

to put together a selective assortment of merchandise

and wait to tally sales. To be successful

you must present shoppers with solutions

to their purchase needs. That may be as frivolous

as a new doodad to display on their mantel,

or as necessary as a new liner for the

chimney. The successful specialty store gains a

reputation as the unrivaled source for selection

and related services in a select category of merchandise.

Whatever the category, you’ll need to be fully

familiar with the products you sell, and their

applications. It’s not enough to know what is

available in your selected market niche, however.

The specialty retailer must know all there

is about the products the store sells.

Remember, the specialty store exists to provide

solutions for a distinct group of customers.

Your knowledge and enthusiasm are an important

aspect of what the store offers.

For that reason, if you want to open a store, but

aren’t yet sure what type it should be, you

should begin the planning process with a thorough

evaluation of your interests and experience.

Look within, first, for anything in your

background, experience, or hobbies that might

lend itself to a retail store. The gourmet knows

food and how to prepare it. The outdoorsman,

camping equipment. The working woman respects

the challenge of balancing career and

family.

In each case above, the individual could develop

a store concept around the interest, im-

mediately identifiable

by shoppers: The

Gourmet Pantry of

special kitchen tools

and condiments; Trips

and Trails, the backpacker’s

warehouse;

Mother’s Helper,

where women find everything from quick

meals to games for quality family time. Whenever

an entrepreneur develops a store concept

around a personal interest or concern, the store

gains a mission. The owner brings genuine passion

to the endeavor, and that can prove contagious

to shoppers. And in pursuing your own

interests and helping others in that pursuit,

running the store is not a job, but a pleasure.

Such fortunate retailers can’t wait to get to

work, and they have trouble leaving at the end

of the day.

Creating your store around something you already

know and enjoy strengthens the business.

It’s easier to get enthusiastic about

something fondly familiar than something entirely

new. By selling what you know, you give

yourself a head start and cut down on the time

required to learn an entirely new category of

goods. To succeed as a 21st century retail entrepreneur,

you must be the recognized expert on

what you sell. That expertise should be rooted

in your own experience and interests.

The specialty store draws its appeal from the

combination of product selection and related

services available only there. Camera stores

stock cameras, accessories, and

frames, and offer camera repair

and film processing. Computer

stores sell hardware and software

along with such services

as repair, installation, and training.

Use your own shopping experience

as an aid in identifying potential

market opportunities. Compare your needs for

selection and service with what you’ve found

in the marketplace.

So if you want to open a store, but aren’t yet

certain what kind, get out your notebook and

start jotting down notes. Where are your real

interests and experience? Is there anything

there that lends itself to a specialty store?

Retailers Forum was established

out of the need for product

sources among small retail

merchandisers. Each month,

Forum’s advertising pages feature

merchandise offerings

from the country’s !eading

wholesalers, manufacturers,

and jobbers.

Don’t confuse this

magazine with some

of the “opportunitytype”

publications offering

products that are outdated

and way over-priced.

These are real rock-bottom

wholesalers offering prices like

Videos at $1.25 • Sunglasses at $3.00/dz • Rings at $0.25/ea.

Buy where the retailing giants buy! The advertisers are professionals in

their fields, offering you variety, service, monthly specials, closeout specials,

and the lowest prices available. Best of all, they will ship UPS no

matter where in the United States your business is located. Minimum

orders are as low as $50.00 with many wholesalers. Many advertisers

offer further reduced rates for bulk buying at enormous savings to you.
