How to Start a Sari Store- Get Tips for Starting Your Own Sari Shop/Business

In today’s date having your own sari store is one of the most sound decisions that anyone can take. The business offers all year round demand with a huge profit margin. One can prosper a lot in no time in a saree business. One can find a large variety of Indian sarees.

They are special to each district or state of India depicting their culture. It is also the most preferred tradition as well as casual attire of Indian women. Thus there is huge demand for various types of sarees.

Now when you are planning to start your own sari store, it is advisable to first decide upon the type of saree you want to sell and the place from where you would like to begin the business. These are just elementary things. One should keep in mind few things which will help him in prospering their newly found sari shop/ business.

Here are some tips on how to start a sari store

•Take a decision about the type of saree that you wish to sell in your store initially. There are loads of varieties in Indian sarees so choose those which have a high year round demand.

•Decide upon the place from where you wish to start up your business. Make a survey of various markets and choose upon a suitable premise to start up your shop. If your shop is in a crowded place it would get more chances of customers. However, too many saree shops clustered together at a same place would eat into your business.

•If you don’t want to go into specific saree sale then a country wide visit is advisable especially to those areas where sarees are made like in Varanasi. Get a sound idea about all the popular sarees, who have high demands etc.

•It is crucial to be familiar with the price range of sarees of different makes and style. An average saree costs anywhere between Rupees 300 to 2500 while the more embroidered and heavily styled sarees cost even more than rupees 30,000-50,000. It gives you a large margin for revenue earning. It is thus better to do a job in an already established sari store like Rajan Silk Store in Varanasi to get an idea about the price range of different saris.

•Before starting any business, it is very important to identify your target customers. If you are going to sell a large variety of saris catering to the needs of large section of women, then you have a huge target customership. For a new sari business, it is always safe to start from a medium range being specializing in certain type of sarees which are profitable for your business. One can always expand their business later.

•Do promotion of your sari store through website, word by mouth publicity, showcasing various designs to prospective women customers etc.

•It is all about good will and reputation in a sari business. To retain your customers and make new ones, one should get quality wholesale sari stalk from an established sari store. Rajan Silk Store in Varanasi offers great prices on wholesale saree purchases.

In the end, it all depends upon how much hard work and labor you put into establishing your sari store!
