Do you have a sure-fire winner on your hands with your idea for a retail store? You might have identified the perfect product to sell, but have you thought beyond that stage? Are you up to speed on the many other tasks that need to be faced before you even get close to opening your very own retail store?
The infographic by Irish online till roll provider Paper2Paper (www.paper2paper.ie) takes a brilliantly summarised look at the key tasks that are involved in the establishment of a retail store. From weighing up the competition to choosing the right location to set up shop, finding the necessary funding to meeting the many legal requirements and selecting the right staff, there is much to consider in addition to your product or service.
There is no doubt that the challenge of setting up your own retail store can be a daunting one, and it is one which will require a great deal of self-confidence, perseverance and a willingness to work practically around the clock. However, if you have the business acumen to make it happen, as well as the personality traits to see the job through and turn obstacles into mere tests, it could be the right career option for you. Imagine the pride you would feel if you created a retail store that is not only surviving, but also winning the hearts of the customers who repeatedly walk through your doors, and being able to say ‘I made that happen’.
