how many positions are there? how much inventory are you opening with?its a lot of categories,not a easy task to find some one who can talk trains on minute then helis the next,from twenty years i can tell you a good sales person with a good manager is almost always better then a hobbyist behind the counter,and in todays world a good guy on the internet is worth its weight in gold, of course he has to know a good deal when he sees it as well, not just for price but knowing if it will sell. i just manufacture now. but retailing was fun and i met a lot of good people, that said, that did not pay the bills, i would say come high or stay home, if you dabble in different areas you will lose.

Congrats on your store
I own an hobbyshop in Asia for 3years and if you could lower the cost as lease,employee (multitask,knowledgeable,friendly,and honest is the key ofcourse ),purchase price (cash usually better),import duty; then it will be a very rewarding experience,at least in my contry,and I want to make my shop a very long life
I wonder about importing;
Import duty
How much is the legal US import duty or customs fee for rc electronic toys and battery?
And do US citizen need a special licence as commercial one to import eg. a 5,000usd goods per month or so?or just import it, pay the taxes and no comercial licence at all?
