Editor’s note: This article was excerpted from our Clothing Store start-up guide, available from Entrepreneur Bookstore.
We’ll presume that your desire to open an apparel store isn’t because you want to prove to your ex that you’re actually hip and happening, or that you’re so confident of your style that you need to share that good taste with the community. We’ll instead presume that you have an acute business sense, a sincere interest in the clothing business and more than a little cash in the bank.
Opening an apparel store is serious business. For some of you, it may mean giving up the safety of your corporate job with its steady income, paid holidays, vacations and the opportunity for advancement. All this, and guaranteed 12- to 14-hour days. “Running an apparel store is more than a full-time job,” stresses Nancy Stanforth, professor of merchandising at Oklahoma State University. “Running an apparel store is something you do all day every day.”
Always Room For More
Fortunately, there’s always room for the right kind of apparel store. Although you might not guess it by the number of malls and outlet centers cropping up, we’re mostly a nation of small, independent merchants. In fact, most retail stores, and that includes apparel stores, are small, both in size and in sales volume, compared to a Gap or Old Navy. The typical apparel store is a small operation, usually run by the owner alone or by a husband-and-wife team.
Here is a handy set of questions that will help you determine whether fashion is indeed your forte.
1. Is this a business in which you have experience?
Maybe you’ve taken those merchandising classes; maybe you’ve watched your father, mother or grandparents run a business; maybe you spent a summer selling makeup over the counter at Macy’s. In any case, your experience and business sense are as important as your interest in clothes.
2. Can you live with the inherent risk in the apparel business?
This isn’t meant to scare you; we’re only trying to present a balanced picture. If you’re serious about opening an apparel store, you need to know that, like the restaurant business, the apparel business is risky. You may pour your life savings into a business that goes bust within a year.
“Nothing is sure-fire, and there are risks attached to starting any kind of business,” says Fred Derring, president and owner of D.L.S. Outfitters, a New York City-based apparel marketing and consulting company, “but you’ve really got to love the clothing business because you can make more money doing almost anything else. Even in the restaurant business–if you’re successful–you can make more money in five years than you can in 15 years in the apparel business.”

About Amore Jewelry Design.
An online and brick and mortar Jewelry Store.
Clearly many National Chain Jewelry Stores often have high overhead costs. Amore Jewelry Design works extremely hard to maintain lower overhead expenses in order to provide the most competitive prices for fine jewelry and jewelry services possible.
As an independent jewelry store, we are not restricted by corporate policies and high overhead costs; therefore, we have the flexibility to satisfy clients every need.
Chain store sales associates may not have the qualification to field questions or provide additional information concerning diamonds, gemstones, and precious metals. Amore Jewelry Design sales force consists of professional jewelers with the qualifications to help you find high-quality pieces that will last a lifetime. We are passionate and incredibly knowledgeable putting a wealth of resources and experiences at your fingertips. Our jewelers will work with you one-on-one to brainstorm ideas and create for you truly special custom designs.
Beyond selling premium merchandise, Amore Jewelry Design offers in-house jewelry services to extend the life of clients’ investments. We provide expert jewelry repairs to restore broken or damaged items to their former glory. Repairs and work are done in-house. Overhead costs are lower than the chain stores reducing your costs for repairs and the time it takes to complete those repairs is much shorter.
With a passion for excellence and detail Amore Jewelry Design is committed to creating excellent customer experiences when buying jewelry.

1.0 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Booming Boutique is a start-up retail establishment that will sell fashionable clothing to women of the Baby Boom generation. We will locate Booming Boutique in downtown Pleasantville, Florida, which is a popular retirement and tourist destination. While our initial goal is to open one boutique, expansion plans include potentially franchising our retail store and/or building a well-recognized brand name. In turn, we would hope to penetrate a sizable portion of the online retail market.
1.2 PRODUCTS & SERVICES
The fashion and retail industry tends to be overly youth focused. However, by closely following generational fashion trends as well as our own customers’ purchasing preferences, we will tailor our inventory to meet the specific needs of our clientele. We will solely focus on the our styles, colors and fits to flatter the lady Baby Boomer/ Meeting the needs of her figure will be our specialty.
1.3 MARKET ANALYSIS
The total sales reported in the U.S. retail industry in 2007 (including food service and automotive) exceeded $4 trillion. There are roughly 75 million Baby Boomers, half of which are women. In Pleasantville, the current population is just fewer than 40,000. 54 percent of the total population is women who have a median age of 48. The median income is $48,600. We will initially seek customers locally, but will increase our reach as we build our brand and secure our image.
1.4 STRATEGY & IMPLEMENTATION
Booming Boutique recognizes the importance of marketing. And to that end, we plan to promote our retail business with an ambitious, targeted marketing campaign, which will include a grand opening event, local media coverage, print advertising and a direct-mail campaign. Our goal is to keep our marketing budget to no more than 5% of our gross annual sales, and we will partner with local organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce and Downtown Merchants Association as often as possible.
Robin Mathews and Joanna Jensen are co-owners and will co-manage Booming Boutique. Mathews has worked ten years in the retail industry, including four years as the manager of an antique furniture shop. She earned a BA degree in finance from Britannica College in Tampa, Florida.
Jensen’s experience lies in the fashion industry. She’s worked with designers, wholesalers and retailers for roughly 20 years. Jensen holds a BA in fashion merchandising from Colliers Fashion Institute in Miami, Florida.
1.6 FINANCIAL PLAN
Our company will earn revenue from our customers’ purchases of our products. Booming Boutique’s first-year income statement illustrates a profit margin of at least fifty-two percent, with a net income of $44,075 per month – after taxes. Finally, we have determined our break-even point will equal no less than $15,500 in total monthly sales. We project
