Dollar Store Services, Inc helps to create business opportunities for budding entrepreneurs. Their goal is to help you ‘the franchisee’ open a dollar or a dollar plus store. Dollar Store Services, Inc. is the most economical and largest developer of the finest high image dollar and dollar plus stores to be found anywhere. It offers a total comprehensive package, which covers every pertinent aspect of opening and running a retail business long term. They assist in finding your new dollar store location, help negotiate the lease, perform the store design and layout, do the physical build out, help you to secure financing as well as provide ongoing support. Dollar Store Services supply all dollar store merchandise, fixtures, equipment along with the work crew to open the store, and they do it quickly and professionally. Training is designed to ensure that each new owner of the retail outlet is familiar with the many aspects of managing their store. This experience begins before and continues well after the store’s opening. This training includes a full review of a comprehensive operations manual and related materials designed to aid the franchisee in operating the store on a day to day basis. Both classroom and onsite training are available, and encouraged, prior to the opening of the store. You are the owner of the store and have 100% control over all aspects of your business. There are no ongoing royalties or fees, but you do receive permanent long term support and access to the purchasing network. From the beginning you have total control over all decisions regarding ‘Your’ store, including site location, store layout, timing of opening and merchandise.

Training and support are the foundation to the successful launch and development of your store. You will benefit from intensive training broken down into four distinct segments.
