Disadvantages of Opening a Fashion Store: The foremost disadvantage is that you will need to invest a large amount of money to set up your store. Usually, it is required that you first buy a large shop, which will be used as a store room, before you can set up a small shop. This means that even though you will get a bigger profit from your store, it would be hard for you to set up a shop in a place that is not busy.
Another disadvantage is that you may not know how to sell clothes using your new store. If your brand sells clothes for children, then it is not a good idea to open a fashion store for teenagers. Teenagers like trendy brands and they will automatically purchase your brand, but if your brand sells clothes that are too casual, then your teenagers will not buy from you. You still need to know what kind of clothing your teenagers are interested in buying.
The third disadvantage is that when you open an online store, you cannot control the price of your merchandise. Different online stores have different policies on pricing. Some may offer discounts to buyers, while others do not. Online shopping is a very exciting experience, but you must be careful, because there are some fraudulent sellers who may offer you substandard quality products. Although many people use online stores to purchase apparel, there are still some people who prefer to visit a brick and mortar fashion store to purchase their apparel.
