The basic costs associated with retail space for rent
A quick checklist of start-up costs related to renting retail space would include:
- First and last month’s rent plus damage deposit
- Furnishings for the retail space
- Utilities and WiFi hookups
- Marketing associated with the opening of, or moving of, a business
- The actual cost of the move itself
- Extra for unforeseen costs
Can you afford these start-up costs? Only you, the business owner, can answer that question.
The average cost of retail space for rent in Fort Worth area
It is impossible to give a definitive price quote for commercial property for rent in the Fort Worth area. It depends on location, location, and location. Our best guess is, conservatively, you can expect to pay at least $2,000 per month, but quite possibly, for prime locations, that cost could skyrocket to $10,000 or more per month.
Our solution to your dilemma
Our solution can be summed up on four words: Box Office Warehouse Suites.
And what is Box Office Warehouse Suites? It is a new type of commercial property for lease, located in the Fort Worth Design District. It is commercial and industrial property for lease made out of refurbished shipping containers, each container offering 320 square feet of lovely retail space, and each container/retail space costing a mere $875 per month.
What sounds better to you, $875 per month or $10,000 per month?
Not a thing can be done about the other start-up costs on the list above, but this low monthly rent represents huge savings for a small business owner, a savings which simply cannot be ignored. If you are in the Fort Worth area, you definitely owe it to yourself to pay a visit to the Fort Worth Design District and in particular Box Office Warehouse Suites.
