Hey fellow green fingers. So I have been approached to assist in opening a petshop in the Roodepoort area. I would like you to please post what you feel is essential to have in a LFS and your expectations of visiting a LFS. I think this will also serve as not only to tick the boxes but also keep it true in the development of the store. Starting off with the basic needs and then later developing into something much larger. The sponsor of this store will be supplying the cash and later on I will become a partner in the business as I have some contacts within the distributers. Could you assist me in detailing your weekly/bi-weekly purchases at your very own LFS? Not only plant/fish related but also general pet needs? What fishes you would be willing to buy if your LFS does stock them? I have made contact with a plant supplier that seems capable of bringing in plants every biweekly and a nice bunch of scarce plants every month. What is the first thing that makes you want to run out of a store with a flaming temper? Some suggestions would also be appreciated that will set this store apart from the rest? Cash is tight as this is testing and tuff times, so please keep that in mind. My personal standard for this store is to not completely rip people off and to have a welcoming and trustful relationship with all clients. Thanks for reading and for all your opinions.
