Hi Everyone

I have a bit of a problem.

i started an online ebay store selling authentic brand name trainers eg : Nike , Adidas Diesel etc.. Things are going well but I would like to start an actual shop but dont have the money 2. The cheaper option for me would be to start a market stall, but the big companies wont licencse me. Is there anyway i cn get round this.

Thanks please help

Well where are you getting your authentic brands that you are selling on ebay?

The only way around being licenced by the parent company and being about to buy direct is to go with a brand that allows 'sub-licences'. These are a licence that are granted from an authorized distributor...If you can find a distributor or manufactor that has sub licence rights you can work it that way and not have to open a franchise store. Alot of the 'factory stores' work this way...

thanks for your help gulfy.

In answer to your question, i am buying the authentic brands from someone who basically buys 'close out' merchandise, direct from the companies. (with the right license etc...) and sells them on that way.

I will look in2 your suggestion though, thank u very much.

Anymore suggestions???
