Discount Retail Store Services is the worlds largest developer of independently owned businesses. We develop businesses to be fully owned and operated by our customers, we do not develop franchises. We've opened over 2,500 new businesses and that means new business owners can rely on our experience providing seven key services required to start a new business.
Our Finance department thoroughly evaluates each client’s credit profile to determine a solid funding path. Then we will contact the client to discuss and review the findings.
We have an authorized network of preferred lenders to handle every level of risk.
We have helped hundreds of clients secure financing, we are experts in getting the best financing deals.
We also have an in-house credit repair staff that can work with clients with lower FICO scores.
If a client has a credit score of 650 or higher our in-house credit repair department can probably help them improve their score and acquire the funding they need.
Selecting the site of your business can be a challenge. Our site locators provide you maximum information and reserach on select sites.
Staff of 5 Professional Site Location Specialists find all available business locations in the client’s marketplace.
Site locators call and email every landlord and broker in the desired city to determine what locations are available.
Our grading system analyzes each location based on visibility, demographics, population and household income, traffic counts at key intersections and distance to competition.
When a site passes our scrutiny and receives the proper grade we ask the client to evaluate it. If they approve of the site we will then negotiate the lease agreement on behalf of our clients.
We have a staff of 5 full time commercial leasing managers that work at our corporate office.
Our leasing managers are intensely aggressive in negotiating the absolute best deal for business owners and have completed leases for over 2,400 retail stores, for all concepts.
Each of our leasing managers work a specific area of the country and have developed relationships with a large number of landlords helping us to get tougher, more challenging deals done, when others can not.
We NEVER outsource the site location or lease negotiation process to independent brokers. Quite often an independent broker is more interested in showing their own listings to clients where they will earn the highest commission. This is not in the client’s best interest.
We negotiate 17 different provisions for EVERY lease, which is incredible and leads our industry.
Discount Retail Store Services offers a complete business development package which includes sending our experienced and professional staff out to build your business.
Build Out includes everything from assembling fixutres to stocking the store, everything needed to get your doors open.
Once you have received the keys to your space, and it is ready for occupancy, and we have received your final payment, your business will be open for business within 30 days.
We apply the experience gained from opening over 2,400 stores since 1992 to your training.
We make every effort to make sure that every owner receives the most detailed and extensive training possible.
We personalize your training to focus most heavily on the areas most important to you and your business.
Our training program is conducted over a total of 8 weeks, and tailored to your individual schedule.
We begin with phone training followed by 2-3 days of classroom training.
Our in-house training will cover every aspect of business, from billing and customer service, to membership sales and retention, to administrative skills such as loss prevention and payroll, and much more.
We Provide Value, Variety, and New Merchandise which are the keys to our merchandise program.
Because our network of stores is so large, our suppliers ship “inner packs” to our stores. Which means our suppliers will ship as little as 12 or 24 pieces of an item.
Our business owners have much greater variety with the least amount of inventory dollars, ensuring quick turnover and a constantly changing merchandise assortment.
When formal training is complete, clients work directly with our New Owner Supervisor, who will assist the owner with monitoring membership sales and maintaining inventory levels and salary cost.
We will always be available to address any questions or issues you may have, even after you have completed the initial training process.
We will also assist you in placing orders from the right suppliers at the right time, source requested products, and will constantly evaluate your sales by category, recommending changes to your merchandise plan as your store matures.
We will be in contact with you on a weekly basis, reviewing new suppliers and product offerings, making sure you are fully merchandised and set for each selling season, sourcing new products, and interfacing with our supplier network on your behalf.
