The proper location for a retail store along with acquiring the best lease terms is very important. In the dollar store business it is important for our clients to seek busy traffic areas and consumer walk by traffic areas. For example, in a large metropolitan area the store should be located in a shopping center preferable with an anchor that generates sufficient traffic. However in a small community, a main street location often works well. Examples of the criteria that may be important in selecting your location are: population based within a certain distance of the store, average residential income, location of competition, traffic counts, size of community, and average sales of the anchor. Dollar Store Services has a professional staff of Leasing Managers. They have established relationships with Leasing Agents and Landlords, giving you preferential treatment and quick results. You start your own business with a preferred standing right away.
