How Much To Invest In A Fabric Store

Hello Andy,
I am interested in opening a fabric store and would appreciate any advice you can offer. I would like to know roughly how much of an investment would it be to open a fabric store? Where can I purchase fabric and sewing notions at a wholesale price? Any other advice or suggestions you have are greatly appreciated.
Thank You,

Dear Amena: Before opening a retail store, I’d suggest you open an Internet store. The local fabric chains are already in the local marketplace. You would need a specialty, to be able to compete with them. Something that sets you apart from them. Visit www.fabricshow.com and www.material-world.com to sign up and register for some fabric trade shows. There is another that caters to the home sewing market at www.sewing.org Good Luck, Andy
