Business Story

Why this business was started

We closed our retail store to concentrate solely on building this website. The result is a user friendly online shop that offers over 18,000 items. The challenge was to have real time inventory updates to reduce having to cancel orders due to items being sold out. And we have accomplished that and now fulfill 99% of all orders received.

The reason of selling this business

Due to a death in our family I have just reduced our asking price for a quick sale. You can make an offer without the inventory or buy it with inventory.

What's involved in running this business

Well for one, answering emails from customers promptly and professionally. Second fulfill all orders as quick as possible by any means necessary. Third maintain the look and appearance of the website. Lastly perform daily inventory imports.

This business was founded: about 4 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 12 hours per week

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    I would promote the website on all the social media platforms and drive repeat business by starting an email marketing campaign to our dedicated customer fan base.

    Skills to have

    Obviously be a fan of all sports and have a strong desire to learn and run an online store. But most of all have the willingness to advertise on social media and use email marketing. We have turned down offers from buyers we did not feel were a good fit for the business so while you are looking us over we will be doing the same as this website is our pride and joy and we have put a ton of time and effort fine tuning it to perform at it's current level. Not to mention over $50,000 in paid advertising promoting the website. So keep that in mind when you compare websites, here is your chance to buy an established business model.

    A born entrepreneur with a passion for sports. In 1986 I opened up my first store selling Baseball cards as a teenager and over the years I opened stores in the major malls selling Michigan and Detroit team apparel and memorabilia. In 2015, I decided to close my brick and mortar stores & dedicate 100% of my time to building an online store. Now after 33 years in business I hope to sell my website to a sports fan with a passion for online business. I appreciate your interest but you must have US address & state resale sales tax license number.
