Actually the LCS around here in ormond fl runs a very successful business. The main reasons are because the guy who runs it is a great guy, very reasonable on prices, box prices are same as blowout and D&A sometimes cheaper, always has product coming in. He knows what he is doing and is one of the best at it probably.

In other words your not selling a aaron rodgers rookie auto or some similar card for 3x BV because you really want to keep it

Yepp no attachment to any cards except COLBERT haha...everhing else is priced to sell...but if you are from out of town and you come in and think our steelers cards are over rpiced thats because they get a premium around here. Everything else is priced to leave the door

Its funny i have been working some ideas out with a friend to start a shop as well! Maybe we can bring the hobby back to what it once was, and get young kids back into it! I was wondering t shop owners break alot of boxes for singles?

We dont! Its too hard to break alot and make good enough money...breaking a box every once in a while is okay but your better off buying nice singles and marking them up a little. And have alot of singles of your local teams

I am no expert by any means but it seams to me a very risky venture when you consider overhead. it may be different in different states. I live in the Bay area CA and renting a place would cost you way to much. I would think that the main advantage to having a store versus an online store would be being able to buy directly from Topps,Panini, Upperdeck..etc.

And your right...thats what defines the difference between us store owners and all the sellers that ruined the hobby...and ik where we are rent for the same sport is 4k lower then it would be just 10 miles down the road...its all about where u go
