Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
I spoke to the Manager in January about the possibility of having a “By Owner Car Lot” in this area. It would be available ONLY on Sat & Sun. I would be charging people to park their vehicles there so I felt I should pay Wal-Mart for the space.
The guy floored me when he said my program would probably bring in more people to his store. (Car Buyers could shop for a car THEN…shop in his store) So…he thought $250 a weekend would be acceptable. He thought his insurance would cover MY “Car Lot”.
I told him I would put Markers around the area where the “for sale cars” would be parked AND I would have a 8ft by 8ft sign on the back of the space so people would know what was going on.
I would run some ads for the first 2 or 3 wks and, after that I think the word-of-mouth would keep the place filled.
I plan on charging $25 a day or $40 for both days… the space can fit 60 cars…
