I'm considering leaving my current place of employment, where I
have done ALL repairs and store stock setting for 5 years now. I am
the only one in town doing ANY repairs, but the management isnt
worth the hassell anymore. Does anyone have any advice on how I
should go about this, and how I can start out with Stuller, or
anyone for an account, and just what steps do I need to take first?
Well Connie, big step. The American dream.
Before you put in your notice.
Are you going to open a retail store or trade shop?
If trade shop, do you have accounts already lined up?
Stuller will sell you on a credit card but if they are sticky at
first, there are plenty of findings houses just as good (really) and
And they will readily give you an account.
Do you already have all of the tools you need? Safe? Insurance? Do
you have some stash of money because that’s one thing that won’t flow
if you’re a trade shop.
If you’re a retail store…
If these items aren’t planned out 1st, you could starve to death and
only wish you had your old job back without the old boss.
If you’re retail, a good visible location is vital. Maybe rent a
store within a store.
I know one guy who has a kiosk in a grocery store. Someone else
rents space in a nail salon.
I did what you did 32 years ago. I had trade accounts all lined up
and had been buying tools, gold and findings for 2 years so when I
opened I was debt free and had several accounts.
