Company History: James Wichert, owner and president of Discount Retail Store Services, Inc. started in the industry in 1992 when he opened the first dollar store in Las Vegas. Shortly thereafter, he began to receive inquiries from customers and tourists about assisting them in opening stores throughout the United States. This became the beginning of the store development operations.
The store development business has steadily grown. Since he started in the Discount Retail business, Mr. Wichert has assisted over 1,800 individuals open such stores throughout the United States and worldwide. Recently, Dollar Store Services Inc. has opened Canadian and Latin American operations.
Today, the company continues to grow at a fast pace. Current plans are to open over 200 discount retail stores annually throughout North America and this feat requires dedication and knowledge by all involved. Wichert is very pleased that the storeowners are able to rely on his staff of experienced professionals. "The staff's superior dedication is at the heart of the Company's success," states Wichert. Wichert also owns a large wholesale company, which supplies over 18,000 products to its customers. The key feature of the wholesale company is that every product made available to our network of stores has been hand selected. According to Wichert "Buying product through the Internet or from catalogs is the same as buying sight unseen. How can anyone possibly negotiate the correct price of a product without seeing and touching it to determine both quality and product value?"

Discount Clothing Stores is the developer of the finest discount apparel stores in our industry. Our comprehensive turnkey package covers every key aspect of opening and operating an independent retail business long term. We assist in finding your store location, help negotiate the lease, perform the store design and layout, do the physical build out, help you to secure financing as well as provide ongoing support. We supply all merchandise, fixtures and equipment along with the work crew to open the store, and we do it quickly and professionally.
Merchandise From Our Quality Suppliers Network: The long term success of any store revolves around merchandise. In our business, the value, variety and amount of new merchandise you provide customers are three critical variables that will determine how successful you are, and this is where we excel!
Our merchandise is provided through a vast network of suppliers. We travel to personally see each of our suppliers on a regular basis where we inspect and select the merchandise to assure high value and quality, and to review hot, new merchandise; then, we negotiate rock-bottom prices on behalf of our network.
Training and Support: Training is designed to ensure that each new owner is familiar with the many aspects of managing their store. This experience begins before and continues well after the store's opening. Your trainer will be in contact with you both before and after the store has opened. This training will include a full review of a comprehensive operation manual and related materials designed to aid you in operating your store on a day-to-day basis. Both classroom and onsite training are available, and encouraged, prior to the opening of the store.
Build out and Top Quality Fixtures: We create "boutique styled" look as we want to make an incredible presentation to your customer base. We supply warm rich cherry cabinets complimented with nickel satin finished metal racks, coupled with matching wall units and slotwall all of which have interchangeable brackets for optimum flexibility in changing the appearance of the store; keeping it looking fresh and exciting for your customers.
We also give you an allowance for the outdoor sign and provide interior store signs. We send a professional installer to the store location to set all fixtures. Then, the work crew will stock merchandise and ready the store for the grand opening.
This is NOT a franchise: You are the owner of the store and have 100% control over all aspects of your business. Since we are NOT a franchise, there are no ongoing royalties or fees, but you DO receive permanent long-term support and access to the purchasing network. From the beginning you have total control over all decisions regarding YOUR store, including site location, store layout, timing of opening and merchandise.
We Are Experienced Retailers: The owner of Discount Clothing Store Developers has successfully owned and operated discount retail stores, so we fully understand what is necessary. We know the best merchandise to provide to stores, when to begin stocking for each season and how to recruit and retain key employees among a countless array of topics. We understand the daily demands of the business and have incorporated our vast knowledge and experience into our program. When you work with us you work with a company who has first hand retail experience and will work with you to maximize your store's profits.
