Are you currently looking to start up your own business at one of the Sydney's wellknown shopping centre, Westfield?
Starting a new shop ain't easy; there are a few tips here to help you decide!
1. Is the westfield location convenient for you and your staffs?
Location! Location! Location! Understanding the location of your shop is critical to help deliver your service/products to your target audience. Don't forget the convenience of your customers being able to reach you. You may be asking whether your focused customers are the local group?
2. Is the shopping centre itself already overcrowded with similar products that you sell?
Having a shop in Westfield is awesome, it attracts so many people everyday. Though you probably don't want to have too much competitors selling similar products/or providing similar service with you.
3. How big do you need for your shop?
Having a good size shop that fits your service/products is critical, generally if you are just planning to start a new shop, anywhere between 40-80 sqm is a good size. Anything over that can be hard to manage being a new business starter.
4. Do you have a design in mind?
Now that you've locked into a shop that you liked and signed the lease with the management team, what's next?
You'll need to have a good design to showcase your products. Do you have an idea in mind? What is the brand colour? Is there a theme you are trying to show? What are the sizes of your products (or equipments if you are providing a service)?
