Need a craft store

Jefferson, GA

#1 Oct 5, 2012
If there are any good business men in this town that would like to start a GOOD business then a craft store like Hobby Lobby or Michaels would make you a fortune.. There are so many people here that love to do crafts and need to travel so far to any hobby shops. We need a craft store!!!

It would be great to have a craft store like hobby lobby etc. here.. So many people enjoy making crafts and there is just no where here to purchase anything. Walmart has some but nothing like the craft stores have..

Wow! Let's rent a 20,000 sq ft facility for about $6K/mo, with about $2M in startup inventory, so we can compete with Hobby Lobby. Then the customers just start crawling out of the surrounding forests, and we start counting how times we can double our retirement savings selling arts and crafts supplies, fabrics, baskets, silk flowers, needlework, picture framing, and party supplies. We'll defy this collapsed economy! Full steam ahead!

Hope your husbands keep the check book hidden.

Home depot had one of the most incredible grand openings and so did Fatz, when there is no huge craft store within 80 miles she just may be on to something!!!! Big name franchise in a rural area just like when the Hallmark Gold Crown store opened years ago just may draw in quite a crowd you never know!!!!!??!!!

A fool and his money soon part ways. Go for it. Then you'll know. And you'll learn that a craft store (and Hobby Lobby is not a franchise) is no Home Depot. It's sad to watch all the business start ups and then their failure, and what it did to the owners finances.

I have looked into this numerous times. I am a crafter myself. The numbers just aren't there. Several independent stores had tried and failed - it seems like there are enough crafters to support such an endeavor but there just isn't :(

I agree with you, there should be some business men and women that start a craft shop. Crafts are a good thing. Have you tried selling crafts on the internet?

A GOOD craft store would do go just as they do in all the other small towns.

Sometimes great things take a while. Sometimes after 99 times of tring, it works on the 100th time. Crafts stores will do better later, I'am sure. It's mostly because of the enconomy that craft stores have not got much business. You said you have looked into this, if you are a business owner I would suggest to keep going, don't give up, people may depend on you.
