Been thinking about starting my own business for a while, and having worked in retail for quite a while, you soon become to realise how expensive the 'Back to School' and 'Back to College' period actually is! On many occasion having customers spend upwards of £75 on stationery. With that being said, I have had a few business ideas related to this that i'd appreciate feedback on...
1) Stationery Pick 'n' Mix
Website which allows users to select which products they require and quantity (rather like a sweet pick 'n' mix), and have everything delivered straight to your door. Prices would be based on items selected and would be competitively priced.
2) School Stationery Subscription Box
Initial subscription service where you get all of the essentials before the start of the year, with small 'fill up' supply boxes throughout the year. Could also offer an 'Exam' box with all exam essentials.
Both of these options would include items suitable for all year groups from KS2 through to University students.
Would any of those two ideas appeal to you? Any suggestions as to a service like this you would like to see available?
Thanks in adavnce
Idea: Stationery Business - feedback wanted!
