No matter what you sell, no matter what service you offer, there are business costs.
Opening a shop in an actual physical mall for example:
LITTLE GREEN BEAN, Sharon Munroe, North Austin, Texas
She opened her shop in a mall in Texas in 2010. Didn’t open until 2011. This is what she paidbefore she could open her doors:
Rent and Operating Costs
- Security deposit for the rental lease ($1,877, based on 1,609 square feet in a well-established, centrally located strip shopping center in North Austin, Texas)
- First month’s rent in advance, plus triple net ($1,877; $835 for her portion of the center’s operating expenses and property taxes)
- Utilities security deposit ($300)
And that was to open. Who knows what she’s paying now in 2015 for the store to remain in the mall. If it’s still open!
