I think the store could be a great place for folks to do one-stop shopping for all of their rowing needs. Many rowers row competitively at the collegiate and professional adult levels, and the population of rowers in highly represented in the higher SES categories.
How can the future owner improve the business?
I unfortunately did not have the time to invest into this business. Inventory could definitely be tweaked - I found a couple sellers that have really high quality products, and in doing market research, there are definitely items that would be "hot ticket" items for men and women rowers.
What work have you put into the store?
I have done the basic implementation for the backbone of the store and added basic products and goods that rowers might be interested in purchasing. I created social media accounts for the store, and designed a logo.
How many hours does it take to run this business per week?
I am a clinical psychologist, and the wife to a rower. I used to be a coxswain in Chicago, IL. I wanted to open a business on the side, but unfortunately have not had the time necessary to devote to this shop. I would love to see this shop become a success.
