Find a storefront that garners good traffic and comes at a doable price for you and your partners. Are you more of a Goodwill-type spot, or a higher-end consignment store?
While some shoppers do specifically seek out thrift stores, others might not consider it unless they happen to be walking by, so shoot for a spot where they might happen to be walking by."Secondhand" doesn't really tell much about what a shopper might find inside the place. There's a lot to choose from, and it's important to make those choices early so the rest of your store-opening process stays on-brand.
Over the past few years, more and more companies have decided to enter second hand clothes wholesale markets.
This is because used items, clothing or otherwise, sell remarkably well, even in a recession.
Taking into account your store's location, image and audience, it's time to draw up a real-life business plan.
Budget for cost of inventory, rent, deposits, advertisement, staffing and potential unforeseen expenses.
