As a gift store owner, you will be serving a narrow market of customers interested in the goods you carry. This is different from a convenience store, for example, which could serve just about anyone walking down the street. Given the specialized nature of the business, you’ll want to have an in-depth knowledge of your products so you can connect with your customers on a personal level and help them find just what they need.

Finding the Right Location

In some industries, it’s easy to pick the right location for a business. Using the convenience store example once again, that type of business needs to be in a high-traffic area, usually on the corner of two busy streets. You’ll still want traffic for a gift store, but you will also need to be in a shopping area where people are making other kinds of purchases. Even if they didn’t head out to shop with your store in mind, being near other shopping destinations can provide you with the necessary exposure and opportunity. You may be able to work with your chosen franchise brand to identify potential locations in your city for this new store.

Taking Advantage of Key Holidays

Your gift store may be open all year long, but there are a few critical times during the year that will be critical to your success. For example, the holiday shopping season is a big one for most gift stores, as are Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, and possibly Valentine’s Day, depending on what you sell in your store. Be sure to plan for these holiday events well in advance and tailor special offers and promotions around what your audience is likely to buy during each season. Cashing in on the holidays can turn a so-so year of sales into a very impressive one.
