The training process begins several weeks before your store opens. We tailor each training schedule individually around your personal life schedule beginning with training over the telephone utilizing manuals, workbooks, and other materials to guide you through the operational aspects of running your retail business. Our in-house professional training staff has many years of experience setting up and managing large retail operations and they pass that knowledge on to you. This high level of training and support is available for the entire life of your business.
After the initial training has been completed, you will be invited to our 22,000 square foot Las Vegas headquarters for 3 days of intensive classroom training that ends with you spending a day at an actual working dollar store to gain actual hands on experience.
At the training you will go thru the daily routine of opening the store, setting the cash register, stocking, ordering merchandise and performing the closing duties. Our hands-on training program is highly recommended and – like everything at our company – it is included in the store package price.
This type of training is invaluable as it brings actual working knowledge to you and it builds your confidence as you are getting ready to open your own store in just a few weeks. This is just another reason why the option of training at our corporate office is such a great opportunity for you.

Invested In Your Success
At the end of your first 30 days of business, Dollar Store Services, Inc. offers to perform a formal review of your store. We ask that you submit a video of the entire store; we review the video in conjunction with the daily sales records, purchasing log, advertising history, payroll information, and the first month’s Profit and Loss Statement. Our Senior Management Staff participates in this 30-day review in an effort to confirm that you understand the workings of your business and are headed in the right direction. Additionally, at this same time, we will provide you with a form and ask you to grade our performance in the many areas involved in the setting up of your new store. We welcome your suggestions!
