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:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

With malls and shopping centers staring at record vacancies, The Star Tribune reports the lowly pop-up store is making a comeback. And it’s no longer limited to the fly-by-night store, as major chains try to wisely spend the cash they do have.

Toys ‘R’ Us just opened 80 temporary stores across the country in an aggressive play for the holiday toy shopper. Splashy fashion brands like Gucci and Gap are using temporary stores to market new product lines. And for the first time in years, mom-and-pops are getting a crack at prime real estate at affordable prices.

The glut has given merchants more choices, better locations and an edge at the negotiating table with landlords who are highly motivated to keep as many lights on as possible.
