“SCRATCH YOUR OWN ITCH”

Oct. 10, 2017, 1:31 a.m.

CNBC. COM did a recent article and interview with Ramit Sethi, a best-selling author, and CEO. The successful entrepreneur talked about the key elements of starting your own business, how to stop making excuses to take the leap, and the pitfalls to avoid.

One of his best pieces of advice when deciding which small business to embark on was “to scratch your own itch.” In short, what is missing in your area that you've often wished existed? How many times have you said to yourself,” I wish we had a…” This was the entire concept Discount Retail Store Services used in 1993 when we opened our first Dollar Store in Las Vegas, NV. We saw major retail stores selling items far above a reasonable price point and knew where quality items could be sourced and sold to consumers at only $1.00, and still have a ...

DOLLAR STORE OWNERSHIP-IMMIGRANTS CHOICE FOR A BETTER WAY OF LIFE

Oct. 5, 2017, 11:16 p.m.

Just two days ago, The New York Times wrote an online article that interviewed immigrants who have become Dollar Store owners to provide a better way of life for their families in New York City.

In years past immigrants came here seeking restaurant jobs and jobs in the textile industry that were very low level, with gruesome hours, hard work, and little pay. Today many have chosen Dollar Store ownership to provide themselves and their families a better way of life and more family time together.

Discount Retail Store Services,(DRSS), the creator of the first ever Dollar Store that opened over two decades ago in Las Vegas, NV has proudly gone on to assist such immigrants in individual small business ownership with our all-in-one , 100% , turnkey business concept.

CUSTOMER ENGAGEMENT WITH EASE

Oct. 5, 2017, 2:04 a.m.

Larger companies and retail chains have been using customer engaging methods in the last few years. Most small businesses have strayed from doing so due to the costs involved. But as Forbes.com recently reported, there are affordable, easy, and must do ways for small business owners to collect marketing data about their customers and use it to keep them returning.

To begin with, starting a rewards program that is fast and free for your customers to sign up with. In just a few minutes at the checkout, you can offer them a free rewards program that informs them of all upcoming specials, and a small one time discount each time they spend an amount you've determined to keep them returning and thanking them for their loyalty. Programming your register with a rewards system is a one-time investment that generates a continuous return. All customers need to ...

THE IMPORTANCE OF YOUR SMALL BUSINESS EMAIL NAME

Sept. 26, 2017, 8:59 p.m.

In a low cost and digital world, small business owners continue to make the same costly mistake; a generic and free email address. Not only does using a Gmail or Yahoo account scream lazy, it yells unprofessional.

An email address with your business name costs only a few dollars a month and showcases it to consumers as a highly professional small business. The importance of a small business owner taking a look at all areas of their business from a third party eye is key. Imagine yourself as a consumer viewing two different Dollar Stores and their contact email address. Are you more likely to do your business with john8888@gmail.com or with john@avenue7dollarstore.com? A customized business email address allows the personalization of your name for your customers along with the professionalism of your business name ...

Back to School kicks off the fall selling season; Profit on seasonal sales all year long!

Sept. 6, 2017, 12:28 p.m.

It's that time of year again as students from pre-school to college, and even adults returning to achieve their degrees later in life head back to school.

School season is a year-round profit for Dollar Store owners and Discount Retail Store Services learned that over twenty years ago when we opened our first Dollar Store in Las Vegas, NV.

For Junior High parents that cost rises to $330 and for High School, parents will well exceed the $375 dollar budget. Add in parents sending their young adults or themselves back to school and the price is around 27 billion dollars.

Many lower income and even middle-class families struggle with these costs each year. In doing so where do they turn? Your independent Dollar Store. ...
