Hello,
I am thinking about opening a small furniture store in west palm beach by early next year. Just want to know the demography and the current situation as far as the market goes. Is there a lot of new community construction going on? What area would be best suited to open up such a business?
Thank you

Okeechobee Blvd/Palm Beach Lakes has your "furniture row" of chain stores, the kind that gives 0% financing and can deliver the next day. Those are two huge obstacles that I would be concerned about competing against.

Thank you for your reply. I might open little bit further from this location. We dont offer financing either and we only sell unfinished solid wood furniture. You can either stain it your self or we can offer staining for you to match you house decoration. Best thing about my business is that the exact same furniture at other stores sells for twice the price.

Perhaps is best to market that to other B/M retailers, or sell online. Your product is very specific. That way do not incur the overhead of rent, or a mortgage against a line of products that does not have that broad an audience.
