Renting A Store In Nigeria
If you are going to Nigeria to open a business, while you can start by selling in a market, such as the Fabadore or Aswanti markets, renting a store is a necessity for maximizing your sales growth potential.
But there are other things that you need to consider before opening any business. For example, how will you be able to find customers? What sort of products will you be selling? How will you be getting products for your store? For example, if you are ordering products from a NY based wholesale supplier, do you have a freight forwarder that can deliver your products from New York to your shop in Abuja, Lagos, or Port Harcourt? Many of my customers use freight forwarders such as Corporate Messengers, Express Air Freight, and Impex.

Asking yourself these questions when thinking about renting a store in Nigeria is the first thing you should do. And it is one of the most important things you should ask yourself, because it is the only way you will learn how to deal with business. Ask yourself what sort of things you will be doing to make your store a success. Remember, Nigerians love fashion, but you must be able to supply your shoppers with styles that are appropriate for their religious and cultural specifications, and by brands and designers that they love. While many Nigerians love American brands, you should also focus on Nigerian designers such as Duro Oluwu, Deola Sagoe, and Lisa Folawiyo.

Will you be selling merchandise such as snacks and clothes? Selling jewelry? Will you be renting a store and then moving into wholesale? All these are important things to know when you are thinking about renting a store in Nigeria.
The other question you should be asking yourself is what kind of merchandise you will be selling? If you want to rent a store, you will be looking to rent out a store room or a room that has enough space for the number of goods you have. In this case, you will need to know how many items you will be placing on display. You also need to understand how much space the store needs. You don't want to rent a room that is too small to accommodate all the goods you have, nor do you want to rent a room that is too big for your business to handle. And especially crucial, you need to have ample inventory to attract and retain shoppers. If you want to give your shop an edge over the competition, you will want to consider purchasing wholesale merchandise by brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Nike, Polo Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Carter's, Levi's, Disney, and Nautica.
Will you be displaying goods for local customers? If so, you will need to rent a display unit. This is especially the case if you want to be able to show off your products to your customers and gain testimonials from them. You will also need to rent a display unit if you intend to have it rented with customers in mind. For instance, if you have a boutique that sells Tahari or Nine West suits to bankers, you will not want your customers to see all your suits displayed carelessly on a counter. The furnishings and clothing racks should match the atmosphere that will appeal your shoppers, as well as display your products in the best possible light.
If you intend to rent a room to have a business meeting, you will need to rent a conference room table and chairs. You will also need to rent chairs and tables for guests and visitors. There are many things that you will need to consider before renting a room. You can contact the landlord to find out the charges involved and get a quote.
You may also be able to find a company that will rent out a store on a monthly basis. However, for many business owners, paying a rental fee based on lease every month is more convenient. You can also purchase a property use the money that you would have paid for rent on other aspects of your business. For example, you can pay off a debt, pay for the starting of a new business venture or purchase equipment for your business. It is important that you use your money wisely.
Lagos has many different stores that you can rent for a clothes store or even a clothing boutique. You may even want to own your own clothing boutique if it is possible. It is possible to buy the materials that you need from a wholesaler who does not have a large minimum, resell the items for a higher price, and then reorder as you build your business. This is a good way of generating an income and it is also possible to keep control over your business. Keep in mind that the best possible prices occur when you are able to buy a pallet or truckload of merchandise.
It can be difficult to know where to start your search for wholesale products. However, there are a number of wholesale websites that you can visit, such as wholesalecentral.com and toptenwholesale.com. These websites often have an online search tool that will enable you to narrow down your search considerably.
Nigeria's commercial directory listings are also very useful for finding a retail space for your new boutique, as they allow you to see the different commercial spaces in one place.
