Business Story

Why this business was started

I decided to start this business to offer high quality and affordable baby and kids European fashion to the American customer. I lived in New York City and it was very hard to find this in a regular store. When I decided to have my second child I looked everywhere and I couldn't believe how expensive European clothing was. So I decided to order some items from Spain and it took about a month and a half to received this package. As a pregnant women expecting a baby I saw this as an opportunity to open a store with the most amazing brands, with affordable prices and fast shipping not only in US but worldwide.

The reason of selling this business

I was diagnosed breast Cancer in January 2019 and I decided that I need to take a break.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    The store reached a point in which more than one employee is required to keep growing. Due to health constraints, I was not in a position to dedicate the necessary time and resources. In the next five years, I would incorporate a person in charge of digital marketing and market research to fine tune the retail process. These two aspects of the business are fundamental to grow the business and expand Voila Bebe's client base, which is ultimately the store's source of revenue.

    Skills to have

    • Communication skills. Both written and oral communication skills are basic. The ability to follow this long term relationship with our providers.
    • The ability to be a self-starter. Do you have an entrepreneurial drive? This job is perfect for you.
    • Love for fashion and kids. It is important to have a passion for quality children's clothing.
    • Customer service skills. As with any retail business, you will need to interact with customers (everything from price of a single item to returned items). All of Voila Bebe's clients however, have been lovely to deal with, and the experience with dealing with our clients has been an extraordinary experience.
