Why Form an Eco Bookstore? There will always be people that want to read. Recycling and reusing are important because it is helping the environment. People of all ages read.
Business Summary My business is going to be a bookstore. My book store isgoing to be called “Eco-Books”. One way I will be green is mybusiness will recycle books. I found a company online that takesbooks people don’t want any more and shreds them to makenew paper. I think it is a good idea, but they are losing profitfrom it. Most of these bookstores were near collages andshredded a lot of used text books. Collage kids do not want topay full price for their books. So, instead of shredding the books,I would resell them at a cheaper price. To get people to come tomy bookstore I would put up flyers billboards and a website. Allemployees I hire will have a high school education or straight A’s(if still in school).The manager I will higher will have a businessdegree also. Barnes & Noble is my competitor, but their pricesare really high. I will prices my products really cheap. Not socheap though, that I won’t make a profit. My product can becheaper because my company will not be as big, so I won’t haveas much overhead. A green business is a business that helpsthe environment or the community. My business would help both
Environment My business will use renewable resources. Recycle books And make books available on audio and digital
ProductsThe products my bookstore will have are: New books (and slightly used textbooks) Audio books Green or eco-friendly Stationary
MarketingI plan to market my business by: Flyers A website And Billboards The Target Market will be Anyone who likes Books
Management The manager will be a business major. My employees will have a high school diploma or straight A’s Every body will get sick days and vacation.
Financial Plan Books will be priced low so the people think they are getting a good deal but you are still making money. To start the business I will get sponsors and pay them back when the business opens.
