Starting at $53,900, opening a dollar store is now within almost anyone’s reach according to Dollar Store Services General Manager, John LaFronz.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 11, 2012
Dollar Store Services announces the lowest starting price in the industry for a full turn-key dollar store that comes with all of the comprehensive services needed before opening plus support similar to a franchise for the life of that business.
Dollar Store Services is the largest developer of independent dollar stores in the world. According to General Manager, John LaFronz, they are the only comprehensive business development company specializing in dollar stores that also offers ongoing support without the fees usually associated with franchising. “We are not a franchise, but because many who want to own any type of store think that their only options are to do it themselves from scratch or to buy a franchise, they unfortunately fall into the franchise trap of high starting costs and endless fees. They do the work, but the franchise gets the credit and a large chunk of the profits. We find that those who discover there is a third option, one that allows the owner autonomy, no franchise fees, but also the support of a franchise, those who discover us are pretty happy they did.”
At $53,900 opening a dollar store is less expensive than a new car in many instances, and according to LaFronz, instead of depreciating the dollar store will probably make money.
According to Rick Suttle of Demand Media, in an advice article about how to start up a dollar store, someone who wants to do it from scratch should be prepared to spend as much as $100,000. Meanwhile the pricing for many franchises starts well above the $53,900 mark. When asked if there were other independent developers LaFronz replied, “There are only a couple, which might be why a lot of people don’t know they have this option. We are the only one specializing in dollar stores that offers all of the essential services as part of our package price however, that includes financing, credit repair when needed, site location, lease negotiation, full store build-out, a network of wholesale suppliers, business training and store operations training before and during opening and for the life of the business, and advertising and marketing support for the life of the business. Other developers will offer some of these services but then will charge extra for others or simply won’t offer some of the services.”
Dollar Store Services has opened over 2,300 dollar stores around the world and is part of Discount Retail Store Services, an independent non-franchise business development firm specializing in turn-key business setup for those who want to start a business including all essential core tasks plus training and ongoing support for the life of the business. Their business models include dollar stores, clothing stores, party stores, teen stores, mail box stores, and fitness centers. Entrepreneurs can get upcoming news about DRSS on Facebook.
