Unique Elements of a Retail Business Plan
A retail business plan should thoroughly list all of the products and services that the retail business will offer. The market section should include national market data on the specific retail sector that the business will operate in, as well as demographic information about the specific location that the retail business will operate in. The profile of direct competitors should focus on a small radius (typically 5 to 20 miles) from the retail location. A retail business plan is typically approximately 35 to 45 pages in length. Retail business plans typically range from $2000 to $4000 to develop a full business plan.
