Checklist - Commercial spaces
6 April 2023
When in the process of deciding on a commercial space it’s important to thoroughly evaluate various factors to make an informed and empowered decision.
Here are some key points to consider when deciding if a commercial space could be a good option to open your shop:
You should make an overall assessment of the shop location, looking for example at which other shops would be located near yours, if it is a high footfall area and if the people passing by correspond to your target audience.
You should then see if the shop itself would meet your needs both in terms of characteristics of the space and the growth potential for your business within the location.
Terms of contract:
Finally, in the case of leasing, you should carefully look into the terms of the rental contract and take all additional expenses related specifically to that shop location into consideration.
By thoroughly evaluating these factors, you can make a conscious and informed decision about the suitability of a particular commercial space for your business.
