Another thing I liked about Exceldetail is he won't sell you a product just to make a buck .. he will tell you it won't do the job and sell you what will .. even if it means lower $$ & less profit.

With so man new and inventive products like OPT and Megs micro fibre pads, Speedy towel (a clay replacement), and etc coming to the market now would be as good a time as any. I'm sure you would be suppoted by detilers from Autopia and this forum due to your past reputation for excllent customer service

As for working capital; start small with a bank loan


For details on raising capital see "Essentials for Starting a New Business" - http://www.autopia.org/forum/detaili...-business.html


Good luck with it...

Patrick,

Retail is tough especially when you have to compete against the online giants. Whatever you decide, your customer service can't be touched.
