Hi! I would highly recommend starting a bit smaller than a Charlotte Russe or Wet Seal as these companies manufacture many of their own products and unless you are manufacturing in China or Pakistan it will be very difficult to compete with their price points. Additionally, you will need to make a significant investment to actually fill an order from larger chain stores and you will have to wait for 60 to 90 days to get paid and you will most likely incur chargebacks which can kill a small business. Unless you have someone you can speak to that has significant experience with larger retail operations and how they work, I would try starting with some smaller boutiques and go from there. I would also recommend you keep all of your initial business on a COD basis, unless you have pockets full of money, as you don't want to have to chase people down to get paid. Best of luck to you!!!
