Whether you are just starting with your first retail location, or planning to expand an already established store,  it is likely that you will find the information posted on this site completely relevant and very useful.  Everything, after an owner’s first vision of a new environment, can be grouped into three main areas of activity:  landlord, government, and construction issues.  Where these have been made to work harmoniously, goals are usually met within an established budget.  And even if a newly expanding business owner knows little or nothing about these three categories, he most certainly knows all about the budget, so that is where he should start his project.
