Retail Stores Business Plan

Start planning your new retailing concept with this exclusive business plan. High street and shopping centre stores developed correctly still provide a profitable venture for most entrepreneurs.

This professionally developed sample plan works for any type of retail business that sells products in a traditional bricks and mortar store. The plan has been used to open clothing, children’s toys, hardware, convenience, and stationery stores.

The Executive Summary of This Business Plan

Below is a preview of the narrative for this plan. This extract is also available in a Word document.

The Business Concept

This business plan is for a new retail concept in the local high street primarily selling women’s clothes, accessories and fashion homewares.

Nathalies Limited is an already trading limited company requiring an initial investment of stock and working capital for the first six months.

Nathalie Yielding, a successful seasoned business woman who has three similar stores in neighbouring towns, spearheads the company.

The Nathalies Brand

This venture is a continuation of a proven concept under the “Nathalies” brand. The current stores generate £951,000 sales and £184,000 profits between them on an annual basis.

The brand targets women between the ages of 21 to 59 providing a unique “boutique” environment selling items from up-and-coming designers. The new store will additionally offer individual silver, platinum, and gold jewellery collections sourced from designers in the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter, which will be exclusive to this shop.

The niche has limited competition, and the closest real competitor is in the city centre with prices approximately 28% higher than ours due to the increased costs of operation.

Products Sold in Store

Nathalies will primarily sell a limited stock of designer clothing complemented by fashion accessories:

  • Designer collections from up-and-coming designers graduated from the University of Arts degree programmes.
  • Smaller stocks from well-known designers.
  • Fashion accessories such as hats, scarves, shoes, and coats.
  • Jewellery pieces including bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces, and belts.

Financial Projections

Gross sales for this shop in the first year of operations are forecast to be £343,000 growing at 29.5% for the subsequent two years. Net margins based on current experience will be 19.3% slightly increasing over time.

The directors will be introducing £80,000 into the business. The investment requirements are for an additional £209,500 to cover shop fittings, initial stock and working capital in the first nine months.

Managers and Shop Assistants

Staffing required for this shop is one manager and two assistants. The store will be open seven days per week 10am to 6pm. A part-time assistant will cover holidays and sickness.

“I needed to put together a long-term business plan to cover all aspects of my new venture. I read a lot of books and attended courses, but I was struggling. Then I came across Teneric and suddenly it was all there in a format I could use and in terminology I could understand. After that, it was plain sailing to the Business Department at my local HSBC Bank”

Jill Shilcock, Managing Director, SEAS Education Advisory Service Limited.

“I wanted ideas for the type of information that needed covering in a business plan, and this gave me a template for the document I submitted to the bank. The business loan we were after was approved. If you have never written a business plan before, then I would recommend your product. It was very straightforward and offered some good advice.”

Gordon Mitchell, UK

“I needed a business plan quickly. The template was easy to use, just fill in the blanks on the wizard and refer to the help guide if I wasn't sure. Your system is good value, and I would recommend them to everyone needing a plan. Attached is the basic plan I threw together in a day for the bank. They specifically wanted cash flow projections, and the Excel spreadsheets were really what I was after from your product.”

John Waterhouse, UK
