Start A Dollar Store
What will you need to start a dollar store of your own? In addition to a
location (rented, leased, or owned), point of sale equipment, staff, and decor
(like shelving), you'll need lots and lots of inventory. Dollar stores do best
when they are packed with inventory. If your shelves are threadbare or spotty,
you are doing a disservice to both yourself and your customers.
Customers don't like to see shelves that are thinly filled. Half-empty shelves
are quite simply depressing. They create an atmosphere of want, rather than an
atmosphere of abundance. To start a dollar store the right way, you'll want to
pack the shelves with so much inventory that it creates a sense of plenty, like
a Christmas tree laden with gifts, or a produce store brimming over with
colorful fruits and veggies.
Of course, stocking your shelves full is more than just a matter of impression;
it's also a matter of commerce. As the old retail adage goes, you can't sell
what you don't have. If your shelves are thinly packed, you will lose
opportunity after opportunity to make sales.
