The shop* is very small although has the possibility of expansion if things go well. Stock will be mainly used parts as I do now just have everything out on display. With a commercial premises I should be able to open trade accounts which I cannot currently do as I am home based.
The shop will be part time unfortunately as I continue with my full time job too. I would love to make it my career and that will continue to be my aim.
I find most bike shops rather boring to be in I'm hoping to have more of an Aladdins cave for roadies (occassional retro MTB would be good too I agree)
Anyway thanks for all the suggestions they've been a great help.
(it doesn't have a shop front and is not in town, more of a garage/ lockup really
but in a semi commercial location)
