At Dollar Store Services, Inc., we help create business opportunities for
entrepreneurs such as you. Our goal is to help you 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
We offer a total comprehensive package, which covers every pertinent aspect
of opening and running a retail business long term. We 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. We supply all
dollar store merchandise, fixtures, equipment along with
the work crew to open the store, and we do it quickly and professionally.
Merchandise From Our Quality Suppliers Network: The long term success
of any store revolves around merchandise. In our business, the value, variety
and amount of new merchandise you provide customers are three critical variables
that will determine how successful you are, and this is where we excel!
Our merchandise is provided through a vast network of suppliers, both
importers and domestic closeout companies. We travel to personally see each of
our suppliers on a regular basis where we inspect new dollar store merchandise
to assure high value and quality, and to review hot, new merchandise. Then, we
negotiate rock-bottom prices on behalf of our network.
Training and Support: Training is designed to ensure that each new
owner is familiar with the many aspects of managing their store. This experience
begins before and continues well after the storeís opening. Your trainer will be
in contact with you both before and after the store has opened. This training
will include a full review of a comprehensive operations manual and related
materials designed to aid you in operating your store on a day-to-day basis.
Both classroom and onsite training are available, and encouraged, prior to the
opening of the store.
Build out and Top Quality Fixtures: We create the "Cadillac" of Dollar
and Dollar Plus Stores, as we want to make an incredible presentation to your
customer base. We supply steel framed gondolas with pegboard backing, beautiful
cash counters, lighted showcases; glass display units are available. We use slat
board with melamine finish on all interior walls. We do not supply flooring but
when it is needed the landlord will generally provide it at no cost.
Our fixtures for your Dollar or Dollar Plus store are designed to be used on
higher priced goods as well, so they can be used for many, many years. We also
give you an allowance for the outdoor sign and provide interior store signs. We
send a professional installer to the store location to install the slat board
and all fixtures. Then, the work crew will stock merchandise and ready
the store for the grand opening.
This is NOT a Dollar or Dollar Plus Store franchise: You are the owner of
the store and have 100% control over all aspects of your business. Since we
are NOT a franchise, 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.
We Are Experienced Retailers: The owner of Dollar Store Services also
successfully owned and operated dollar and dollar plus stores, so we fully
understand what is necessary. We know the best merchandise to provide to stores,
when to begin stocking for each season and how to recruit and retain key
employees among a countless array of topics. We understand the daily demands of
the business and have incorporated our vast knowledge and experience into our
program. When you work with us you work with a company who has first hand
retail experience and will work with you to maximize your store's profits.
Company History: The store development business has steadily grown and
Dollar Store Services was incorporated in 1995. Since he started in the dollar
store business, Mr. Wichert has assisted over 1,500 individuals open stores
throughout the United States and worldwide. Recently, Dollar Store Services Inc.
has opened Canadian and Latin American based operations.
Today, the company continues to grow at a fast pace. Current plans are to
open over 200 Dollar and Dollar Plus Stores annually throughout North America
and this feat requires dedication and knowledge by all involved. Wichert is very
pleased that the storeowners are able to rely on his staff of experienced
professionals. "The staff's superior dedication is at the heart of the Company's
success," states Wichert. Wichert also owns a large wholesale company, which
supplies over 18,000 products to itís customers. The key feature of the
wholesale company is that every product made available to our network of stores
has been hand selected. According to Wichert "Buying product through the
Internet or from catalogs is the same as buying sight unseen. How can anyone
possibly negotiate the correct price of a product without seeing and touching it
to determine both quality and product value?"
International Opportunities: Dollar Store Services, Inc. is the
largest developer of dollar & dollar plus stores in the United States. We have
stores worldwide, and now we are excited to announce the opening of our Canadian
and Latin American programs. We also offer a completely comprehensive program
for foreign nationals who would like to open a store in the United States.
