I am in the beginning stages of organizing a retail business. However i need some help with preliminary issues.
A number of the wholesale lines need a physical address and store pictures to see if we qualify for there higher end products. Some have a 90-day wait period after your initial open date. My question is how can i get off my feet? My business would need some of these wholesale accounts to hit my demographics. I looked at a few retail spots thats lease for $5000-$8000 a month. It seems like i would have to take a shot in the dark, lease the place, retail lower end products to get my foot in the door and hope i can close accounts with the bigger names??? Seems very risky? how do companies do it???
