Re: New Car Audio Store Looking for some advice.
Yah, what he said ^
I had a home stereo shop long ago, and found out fast that you can go broke trying to stock high end components. And like forbidden says, they change every year and you get stuck with stuff you can't sell.
I see a lot of small car audio shops handling Memphis gear. They seem to be a brand that has respectable quality at reasonable prices, and I'm betting that their profit margin is good.
People will come to you for expert installs and custom work that they can't get at chain stores. In my own business it was repairs, service and installations that brought people in. Having the technical skills to handle stuff nobody else could. Sales was a sideline that rarely paid the bills.
