There is one very important but often overlooked method that will greatly increase the time required to sell a small retail business – a simple for sale sign in the window. This tactic is often not used for fear that it may drive away employees or customers. If done with the right attitude, this need not be the case.
- Small and independent retail businesses can be a challenge to sell even in a strong economy.
- Putting a sign in your window will tell your employees, customers and suppliers that you want to sell up and move on.
- Own that decision, embrace it, stop worrying what people will think.
“”Stop worrying what people will think. Explain your good reason for putting the business on the market and then run the business with more energy and focus than ever before.””
