RE: Oh please! ...

"We need a bigger house, but I don't know how we'll ever be able to pack all this stuff!".

And I have taken that as an invitation for reply. I know you didn't mean it, but here goes.

Most people have not been in business and do not know how it is. First of all, all costs must be considered and that includes the rent or whatever else service on the building in which you house your items. This can become significant in a one shop brick and mortar. It is like you are paying rent on everything you hope to sell. In fact at high volume places, every inch of shelf space is pretty much auctioned of to the fastest selling items.

But you are paying one way or the other, maybe rent, or possibly debt service on buying the place, not to mention heating, AC and whatever else. And if you a "floorplanned" then there is interest.

Every day you are in business costs you money. And don't think that online stores just get off for free. Sure they do not have to pay the nice looking boys for salesmen, and a few other things, but someone has to still pull and pack that order and get it down to UPS or whatever. that still costs money.

In the final analysis, being online instead of having a B&M does save you a few bucks, but it is not the be all and do all for everything. For one some people like to see and feel what they buy beforehand. (or hear) What's more is that it does not work all that well for food. I like to see and feel every piece of meat before buying it. I avoid buying meat on the street. They always came to the bars and I bought it now and then, but I never thought I got a really good deal. Sure it was half priced but it was only worth half as much.
