Toss away the traditional
To explain this creative alternative, we are going to use an example, one which can be found at Box Office Warehouse Suites in the Fort Worth Design District. There you can find retail space for lease which is actually retrofitted and refurbished shipping containers. Each unit at Box Office Warehouse Suites is 320 square feet, and each unit rents for $875 per month. Compare that price to other retail properties in other areas of Fort Worth. It is an excellent price and, truthfully, if you were standing inside one of those retail units, say at Salon & Spa Galleria, you wouldn’t even know you were standing inside a shipping container.
Toss away the traditional!
A rose by any other name is still a rose
What is a retail space for lease? In reality, it is four walls and a ceiling which has been zoned as a retail space. Any structure can serve as a retail lease space, as long as the zoning allows it to be so.
Check out a studio for rent. Check out a loft for rent. Check out a garage for rent. You may find that the zoning regulations will allow you to run a retail business from a loft, and you may very well save money in the process.
Save money by sharing
How about this idea: take a retail space for lease, partition it off so that two retail shops can run from the same location, and split the expenses with another retail business owner. This is being done more and more as a cost-cutting approach, and it is especially effective when the two retail businesses are compatible and will draw business to each other i.e. a nail salon and a massage parlor.
Bottom line: think outside the box
