Opening A Dollar Store

Dollar stores, by their very nature, are difficult to open. Dollar stores are filled with an amazing variety of seemingly mismatched items. If you opened a stationery store, you would know just what items to buy. If you opened a clothing store or hardware store, you would know how to prepare for the grand opening. But a dollar store is different; it contains a hodgepodge of thousands of different items, including stationery, clothing, hardware, and much more.

The good news is that the items with which you stock your dollar store shelves will naturally be inexpensive. Opening a dollar store requires you to buy a tremendous amount of inventory, but this inventory is affordable to you. Don’t let the low cost go to your head, however. Be sure to buy items that you know will sell well. Who cares if an item only cost you 40 cents, with the potential to earn you a profit of 60 cents, if you never sell that item?
