Fabric Shop business.
A fabric shop retailing numerous styles and types of fabrics can be opened in a fixed storefront location, or even from home providing you have the space required and the proper zoning in place. Fabric shops have traditionally been very profitable specialty retail operations as the markups applied to fabrics for retail sales can exceed 100 percent or more. The business needs little in the way of specialized equipment, thus keeping the operating overheads to a miniumu. To get going in this business, you'll need to secure supply arrangements with fabric manufacturers, many of which are located outside of North America, so this business will require a bit of research and planning. In addition to fabrics, sewing patters, buttons, zippers, curtain rods, sewing machines, other sewing notions and craft items can be sold as a method to increase the sleection of goods available to consumers as well as increasing revenues.
