As a mum to a special little girl (with ASD, ADD & ODD) I interested in opening a toy/sensory shop for children.
They're used to be one in town which closed down & there are a few shops in the area that sell bits and pieces but I get tired of driving all over town looking for specific things, or ordering online & having it 'not work' as I suspected it would.
I'm sure I'm not the only one & as we are linked in with some pretty big support services in the area, everyone has encouraged me to do it & think it would benifit their clients & community.
Now for the nitty gritty.
How do I even start? We have no savings (currently in family court over DD and abusive ex) so I cant invest any money myself. Are there government grants for this type of thing?
How do I purchase items wholesale?
And then theres renting somewhere & running cost..
any advice/tips would be appreciated.
