Art Supply Store and Gallery Business Plan

Services

NALB Creative Center will provide a wide variety of products of interest to artists and crafters. Our wholesale suppliers will include: Grumbacher, Liquitex, Windsor and Newton, Mabef Easels, Duncan, PrismaColor, Speedball, Masterpiece, Fredrix, Holbein, Rembrandt, and Strathmore. Vendors will include MacPherson and Herr's. There are thousands of products available, we will offer many that are unusual, or new, as well as the basics that every artist needs on a regular basis. We will offer lines to include bargain, mid-range and professional quality products.

Management will rely on customer feedback, suggestions, and daily sales reports to introduce or eliminate certain brands or products.

In year two we will begin marketing our Artist's Oasis tour packages, as well as art/craft equipment rental. Rentals will include equipment items that are too bulky to carry on vacation, or too expensive, or used only periodically, for the average artist or crafter to justify purchase. An example would be a Giclee Printer.
