Is there SCOPE for a new Business in the local area?

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

INTRODUCTION I am thinking of setting up a music/computer games shop. Reasons for setting up this business include the big gap in the market. Middlesborough, 10 miles away, is the closest place to go and find a computer games shop and I'm sure many young people / teenagers in the local area would be pleased and buy games from my shop. This is where market research, that I will be doing soon, will help me find if I am correct. I think that demand is high in the area and a profit wouldn't be hard to make.

I am planning to set up my business in Stokesley, a market town in the north east of England, 10 miles from the industrial town of Middlesborough. I would be setting up in the main high street, located in the shopping district of Stokesley. Areas I would need to look at before deciding if there was a scope for a new business would be finance. Do I have the finance to start up my business? And if so, it would stretch for times of most need? What competition would I be facing? How would I advertise? How many staff do I want to employ? What market research would I need to do? Who would my supplier be? What is my Market Segment? These are just a few answers I would need to question in research before setting up. ...read more.
