I can tell you a specific example of why a store did not stay up afloat, but will refrain from mentioning the store unless asked because of reasons.

1. Online presence; what is your store front like? This particular store was selling their shit on facebook and advertising everything almost exclusively until they decided to buy a domain and set up an online store. The website and store failed the subsequent year.

2. What do you sell? The store I was at sold a lot of random shit that had too much variety.

3. Gun docs should be looking forward to a sale. I wanted to ask the tech for a spring change but told me it would cost $40 dollars and told me to do it myself. I'm not a technical person, why are you shooing away customers!?

4. Free shipping over x dollars. I mean this in general, not just the store that failed. Paying a flat shipping rate doesn't seem worth it to me unless i'm making a small order from a wholesaler.

Then you will pay that person to fix it for you.

Then you're not going to let your friends play with anything unless it's made by Fisher Price.
