Develop your brand and competitive position around your personality, your area or market


Be sure your employees represent you and your audience


You do not need 2000 sq ft to open your shop


Carry products your customers want


You do not need to carry every flavor of every brand nor carry hundreds of flavors

You cannot teach personality or attitude, but you can teach technical skills


Social media, i.e., Facebook and Instagram can overshadow your web site
