My daughter’s first impression when she saw her classroom in school was so happy and she was really glad and excited to go inside the room. She thought that her classroom was like a playground since she saw a lot of toys and kiddie stuffs inside. They also have a children’s playground. During the first and second day of school, their teacher allowed them to play all the toys and have some time to bond with their classmates.
The kids really enjoyed themselves and they have some fun playing along with others. On the third day in school, the teacher formally started their classes. I was quite worried thinking that my daughter would thought she will not go to school again since the toys was being kept already. Good thing she understands it. There were 24 students in their class with 3 classroom desks, little chairs and closet cabinet for their stuffs.
Our neighbor’s educational supply store
Investing an educational supply or school supply store is actually a good business specially if you have great location, a suitable budget and a reliable whole supplier.You may want to find a suitable place to set up your shop. Location is a large variable when it comes to your store’s success, so choose wisely. A store near schools, campuses or training facilities guarantees that you have walk in customers during store hours.
Budget is also important in this kind of business. Overhead expenses should include such basic necessities like supplies, physical structures for displays, rent, utilities, staff, security, etc. Your budget also dictates what kind and the volume of the supplies you can order in and sell.
The third thing to check off your list is to actually get a wholesale supplier for all the stuff that you want to sell. One of the things you need to do in order launch a successful school supply store is to watch out for trends. Although a school supply store needs these requirements: pen, paper, pencils, etc., new trends in their production is usually a hit among young consumers.
Some school supply stores eventually branch out to different merchandises like pocket books, school books, school bags, etc. Unless you really have a large budget to back you up, these merchandises can wait until you can actually expand your store. One of the great advantages of having a school supply store is its potential for expansion.
