So one of the ideas I originally had was to open a store in my local town and sell children’s clothes and baby goods. We are miles from any decent shopping and I know as a Mum there is nowhere to even buy a pretty party outfit.
So coming back from lunch I saw a very small store had a ‘to let’ sign out the front of it, I thought it was fate as I’d decided yesterday to resign from my job at Christmas! Anyway the lady gave me a flyer and when I got back to the office I worked out how much it would be….14.5k for 645sq feet and half of that was upstairs storage!!! FFS! The rent wasn’t that bad at 6.5k plus VAT but there were so many ‘extras’ like a 5k deposit and it went on and on.
So pretty much that is out, I don’t have that kind of money and for location and the tiny size of it, it really wasn’t worth it. imagine how much business you could do with google ad words for 14.5k 🙂
