Online Backpackers-Only Store business.
You can start your own backpackers-only store from a fixed retail storefront location, or as an online store via your own specially designed Web site. This type of retailing is unique and specialized, and products can include backpacks, flashlights, knives, camping equipment, safety equipment, books, and just about anything else that is related to backpacking and hiking. The start-up capital requirements for the fixed retail location option would be in the range of $40,000 to $60,000, while the online version could be launched for considerably less, in the $20,000 to $30,000 range. The business also lends itself to first aid and wilderness training courses, especially if you have a fixed location. The instruction classes could be held nights after the store has closed. Adding related specialty instruction or training classes is a great way to optimize profits while getting the most mileage out of your existing resources.
