Sometimes it's easy to find fault with our favorite LCS, but making a profitable business isn't easy. So I ask all of you, if you had the means, motivation, and market to open a good old fashion brick and mortar retail, hobby shop, what would it entail? Would it be sportscards only or would you carry other items; trading card games, sports figures, comic books, coins, etc What marketing have you seen in your LCS that you would replicate? What hours would the shop be open? What special promotions would you run? How would you acquire your initial inventory? Would you offer services like custom framing, eBay consignment, etc? Let's make this a group project and design the premier LCS/hobby shop? Ready? Go!!!!
