Starting a Retail Business

Tue 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

The death of “brick and mortar retail” has been widely reported and generally accepted, but the truth is that people love shopping in person, and brick and mortar retail still accounts for about 87% of all retail sales. With many national chains closing stores, this is one of the best times for small, local retailers to step into those empty spaces and grab some of that local shopping money. Fred George has been a retail entrepreneur since 1988, and has opened dozens of successful retail stored in that time. In this course, he will teach you the steps to finding a lucrative niche, pricing strategies, site selection and lease negotiation, and running your retail store. If you have ever thought about owning your own retail store, don’t miss this class!
