How to Open a Western Wear Store Business Overview:

If you have a passion for belts, buckles and boots, learning how to open a western wear store could be a very profitable business venture. Plenty of people enjoy western clothing whether they wear it for work or to make a fashion statement. The key to success with this business idea is finding a specialty and selling the best quality items to your customers. For example, boots come in all shapes, styles and materials. Running a specialty boot store would attract all types of western wear shoppers as your inventory could range from standard leather work boots to thousand-dollar hand-embroidered fashion boots. Deciding on a niche will help you focus your business and you will need to open fewer accounts with wholesalers to supply your inventory. You can run this business from a physical storefront which gives customers the ability to feel and try on each item, but be aware that this is also a very lucrative online business idea. Most physical western wear stores carry a little (or a lot) of everything including shirts, hats, boots, buckles, jewelry, etc., which requires a large storefront and a large stockroom. Only stocking one type of item gives you the ability to open a smaller boutique type store or sell online with a small storage facility, or both. With a robust website, you can run a storefront and offer online sales as well. You just need to have a keen eye for what items will be popular, price your items correctly and offer excellent customer service. You may soon need to rent more storage space to handle the stock that will be coming in and shipping out to your western wear customers.
