That's what I thought... Also, I've never seen a brand new skate store open with a SB account. Usually the place has to be around for a few years before you get a SB account... At least that's what the people at Goodtimes told me. They're the local skateshop here in San Antonio. Been around for 15+ yrs... I know they also look at the area you plan on opening the shop and it is located in relation to another SB shop(if any) in the area...
yeah u have to be skate orientated for 2-3 years, then show ur numbers to nsb, for them to even consider if ur worthy to sell their product, then u go on trial basis, only get GR'S, then after awhile once you show u can push their product you show them those numbers, then you get the full on account selling gr's and qs's
its either that, coat tail off another account or cop at retail and then sell at r*pe (which i refuse to do), plus I know for sure that doesnt work.
one spot had got the poison green lows and those fuel mid's...copped at box price and then tried to sell em off for 140 and 150...them s**ts sat there for like 8 months, until they put em on sale..plus that area is so anti-skateboarding, and ppl there figured they were regular whatever dunks, so they see a price tag of 140 and 150 they like f**k that, when they can get reg dunks for 70-88.
gotta be smart about this s**t or you take a crazy loss.
s**t is like chess honestly, when you get them look books, you have to make sure you pick what will sell and what wont, cause you pick 2 sure fire sellers and 5 whatevers, u stand to not make any profit and possibly take a big loss for that quarter
