Retail Store

Classique Gifts Etc. is a start-up retail store offering fine gifts, collectible dolls and doll accessories. The store will be located in Lexington, Kentucky, catering to the middle- and upper-class consumers who look beyond the congested retail malls for the special shopping experience. In addition to offering a wide array of unique, quality products, the consumer will enjoy friendly and knowledgeable customer service and a convenient, un-congested location. This business plan is prepared to obtain financing in the amount of $50,000 to purchase inventory and to help cover expenses in the first year of operations. We are also asking for a credit line of $10,000 to be used as necessary in low cash flow periods. Brenda and Charles Gajdik will own and operate the store together as a team. They will provide $40,000 in cash as an equity investment to be used in start-up costs, equipment purchases, and operating capital. The sales forecasts used in this plan are very conservative compared to a similar business now operating in Lexington. Brenda has observed the strengths and weaknesses of this store and is convinced it can be done better.
