Most people find it difficult to achieve success after opening small retail shops. The shops run and collapse after few months because retail shops are critical and small such that any cash mismanagement, poor skills in management and less attention to the business can lead to its failure.
To ensure prosperity of such businesses one need to consider the following ;
The first thing to do is to take records of the items you are dealing with be it bread, sugar, sweets etc. Anytime you make a sale on any item make a record as well to figure out the remaining and disposed stock. You must also record the cash received from the sales of each and every item independently, do not put the cash sales of all items or goods in one place ;we are doing this to identify the accrued profit of each and every item and incase of loss we are always able to monitor from which item it is coming from. Let's us not generalize profits or losses of goods of small retail shops. This will improve efficiency in running the shop and eventually profits and prosperity.
Secondly, run the shop by yourself as the owner, people may think managing these shops by a family member or a close friend can at times be economical, however, small retail shops are very critical just as I said before and the shop may shut down if the owner is not careful. But incase the owner does not have enough time to operate it by himself or herself then the employee or the person left to manage it must do the recordings discussed above for transparency.
Lastly, recordings and all these processes may be tiresome but always be determined, put hardwork be resilient and smart to achieve something worth it with retail shops.
