Opening a clothing store is no easy task. There are lots of things to think about and a lot of important ideas to start jotting down. Start by making a list including these things:
Research and Find a Brand
Research Wholesale Clothing Liquidators
Location, Location, Location
Know your Customer
Know Your Customer Base
Network and Talk to People
Understand Your Contracts and Leases
You may want to open your store and have an online presence also. Remember that when ordering bulk clothing for your store, shipping time is longer because of the volume being shipped. So prepare accordingly. No matter how good the wholesale price may be for something, you want variety and quality. Shoppers love variety most! Don’t get stuck with 300 of the same shirts just because you are getting them for a super price.
Know your customer base and what they are looking for. Talk with as many retail people as you can and learn from them. Pick a location not off the beaten path for more foot traffic. Read your contracts and lease thoroughly. Spend the extra money to have a trusted attorney read through them also. You will be glad you did.
