An example of an ideal store – Darien Sport
The Darien Sport Shop is a landmark shopping destination in Fairfield County. Located just an hour south of Manhattan, this is a one-stop-shop for the whole family. The store, which is owned and operated by Bob and Sherry Jacobi, was founded in 1946 as a small sporting goods store. Although Zangrilo was an expert in business, his philosophy was simple.
A sports store was a store that sold equipment and clothing for specific sports. As with most retail stores, the demand for these stores is closely related to the level of participation and the start of the season. In the UK, detailed statistics on participation rates are published by the Sport England Active People Survey and by Sport Wales. This information will help you choose the best location for your business. It should also be remembered that the number of customers visiting the store is directly related to the number of active people living in the area.
Before opening a sporting goods store, check crime rates and parking restrictions in your area. Make sure the area is safe as many shops in this industry have a high crime rate. Similarly, the store should be located in a high-traffic area, which can make it difficult for customers to park and use the store. A small sports shop is the perfect place to start, but a thorough market analysis will help you avoid problems.
