Buy The Time

Executive Summary

Buy the Time will be a shopping service that allows customers to purchase gifts and necessities of life at little inconvenience to their schedule and workday. We will do this with the aid of a shopping consultant to provide each customer with quality solutions to their shopping concerns at reasonable prices. The owner has had years of experience in the retail market and is aware of trends and the shopping environment. In time, this service will evolve to incorporate a larger market instead of a luxury for the more wealthy customers.
