Why this business was started
Italian clothing has been synonymous with quality and excellence for hundreds of years, and Italian brands are the most sought after in the world. I wanted to start a business that capitalized on this multi-billion dollar industry, and create what would grow to become the "go-to" place for Italian clothing and apparel.
The reason of selling this business
I am currently in university working towards a degree and that is requiring me to dedicate all of my time towards my studies. I hope to get back into the industry once I graduate.
What's involved in running this business
Daily answering of emails and inquires as well as the general upkeep of the site. Also the social media accounts must be regularly updated and ads should be tested continuously.
Fashion store that deals exclusively with "Made in Italy" and Italian clothing items and sells primarily to the US market. Our mission is to introduce people to the superior quality and design of Italian apparel at a reasonable price. We sell both name brand designers such as Gucci and Armani Exchange as well as boutique brands to represent the best in Italian craftsmanship. We carry almost no inventory and the business is set up for the owner to be able to work from anywhere there is an internet connection.
Why should someone buy this store?
With a bit of diligence and vision, the new buyer will be able to recoup their investment in just a couple of months, and the sky is the limit. This store has the potential to become the forefront online retailer of Italian clothing products, tapping into a multi-billion dollar market. "Made in Italy" has always been synonymous with superior quality and trendiness, and is highly sought after as a label in itself. What's more is that this sector has been largely untapped by next generation eCommerce platforms, which makes it that much easier to break into.
How can the future owner improve the business?
Continue to spread awareness of the brand through advertising campaigns while at the same time building the database of represented brands. This store already has a large selection of products but the new owner should work to keep up with this trend, I already have some ideas for new leads that I will be more than willing to share with the buyer.
What work have you put into the store?
Everything from designing the website to extensive market research and product representation, as well as the creation and upkeep of social media accounts. I have also created systems to streamline the process from adding new products and brands to fulfilling orders as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
