Exclamation ATTN: Hobby Shop Owners

Hey guys, I have been thinking about opening a hobby shop here in my town due to the lack of many around here. Was just looking for any advice or opinions from current shop owners on how to go about getting started, How much would it take to get started? What for overhead is involved? How much advertising. This is going to be my very first buisiness and have no idea how to get started. My number is 717-713-0711 please feel free to txt me or pm me or email [email protected] with any advise on the matter. Thank you very much in advance and have a great day.

First, do a search on the entire forum on threads similar to this. There are probably several hundred threads on this topic, with a wide range of suggestions (the most common of which is DON'T DO IT!!!)

Second, go into the racing forum and look for the Island Hobbies and Raceway thread. That track is the most recent example of someone opening a track, and he is successful. The man decided to open a track after the local track closed up, and he wanted to continue racing. He did a ton of research, and it paid off.
