In South Africa we have various clothing retail business options  


The large Chain stores

There are the large branded clothing retailers, like Diesel, Zara, The Gap and the likes. They have great brands, but are found in very expensive locations and charge handsomely for these brands. Buying such a Franchise business is expensive and you need to cover huge overheads for prime locations. These models are unattainable for a small business owner, who can’t afford to pay R120 000 to R150 000 rental in such upmarket mall locations.


The small independent Fashion and second-hand Fashion stores

These locally owned, independent stores, generally have a low initial set up cost and are managed by people with a passion for fashion, but generally with little or no business experience, mostly little money and no support system.

There is no branding or a proven business model to rely on, technical support or increased buying power. Often those stores do not achieve the potential of any location they are in. The majority of stores fail within the first year of operations.
