quote NagareI agree with this, all the card shops I know of are dilapidated shit holes now. They usually look like grungy variety stores. Unless you have a huge amount of capital to make your store look great and are planning on selling comics and are also a local monopoly on collectibles and have a massive variety of product then your overhead will always outweigh your profit if you're planning on having a physical storefront. Online wouldn't be a bad idea though.I wouldn't. Hobby shops don't see much success any more and all the local ones have closed. Even the ones that offered tourneys for a small fee every week.
quote VeGiTAX2Ok thank you. I agree. If you wouldn't mind, since this field is kinda greek to me, I was wondering what you like about card shops, comic stores, and just oter toy stores. That would really help me when I'm organizing my store.We've said plenty, it's up to you to run the statistics on the demographic in the area and the sales figures for the region to have something that a bank will be willing to bite into if you don't have the capital. As far as distributors you have tons, Nintendo self distributes much of their stuff and if you need imports most people know AAA handles anime and manga distribution for pretty much every area of the US which would include your Pokemon inquiries. Keep in mind they only take bulk orders and as I noted before if you can't move that volume you're eating losses on that merchandise.
No one here is going to draft a proposal and run the numbers for you though, we're just giving you options and information so you can get yourself set in a direction and go from there. I'm pretty sure we've gone above that mark by this point.
