• Why are a lot of retail stores closing even though the economy is doing good and unemployment is low?

    Best answer: Amazon and other online shopping. More and more people are choosing to order products online. It costs a LOT of money to rent a building, pay for utilities, stock, employee, etc. The more locations a brand has, the more costs are involved. Online via a warehouse fulfillment model is more economical.

  • How to do delivery confirmation and signature confirmation on eBay?

    I’m selling a laptop for $1550 on eBay and I’m aware people can scam you if you don’t check for a delivery confirmation and a signature confirmation of items over $250 (or is it $750?). I already listed the item and can’t see how I make it so that those two things are needed. How would I do that? Do I have to start... show more

    There's a small neighborhood market for sell and my wife and I want it. I have 10yrs experience working at on and my wife has about 8. We both work in the medical field and each have a AS degree. Neither of us studied business. We contacted the bank for a loan, and we were told to put together a business plan. Neither of use were expecting that or know much about how to put one together. I've seen examples and tried templates, but I keep running into problems. I have the following.... 1) I have the building and property price. 2) I've spoken with the local wholesale company and worked out an approximate price to fully stock the store and a monthly average 3) Average monthly utilities 4) Insurance cost 5) Business license Then we come to the part of expected earnings forecast from the business during the first year, then the second and then the third. How does one come up with a figure like that? It would be easy to throw out a number, but I require details. I'm trying to start a small neighborhood market, not a supermarket! Can anyone please help? This is taking so long and I'm afraid the store will be bought before we get everything lined out.
