first of all, it is a good idea that you are thinking about the local capacity. grocery stores require significant start-up capital and significant constant costs so you may want to hold on until you know how the recession will affect demand.

anyways, if you need some support...

i'm in the middle of starting a market research biz. the website will be up in a week or so. we will use GIS and census stats to produce figures on local demand. you need to do a local consumer survey or base it on assumptions about socio-economic figures from your country's most recent census. using both is ideal.

one more thing. consider creating a real-time database linked to sales so that you can objectively re-stock and make decisions based on real demand. too many businesses play it by ear, and end up with useless stock.

Depends what else is around you. If theres already all that shit somewhere else or of theres another health store around then there isnt much point. A lot of people are into that shit now, theres a health food store in my town and it does pretty well, although ive never stepped inside it

Nice to see you've got to that all important business step of asking a Wu-Tang forum for advice.

Build it as far away from Govermont Satelite Positions as possible.

what happens if you one day become a global corporation?

will you have to be part of the NWO then, and turn into a Nazi?

Health Stores usually sell organic food which is (edit*)pretty expensive but you should serve food to go.

Sea moss - Yummy if made correctly
Wheat grass = $ for 2 oz. if made correctly
Soy Burgers = gotta have a stella chef or a mexican.
Spinach & Argulla Salad with fresh basil and vinagrette... DELICIOSO!!
Turkey Burgers on Whole Grain bread
Whole Grain Wraps
Natural Fruit Juices HEALTHY smoothies with supplements on demand

Sell cleansers for your intestines - keeps all running smoothly.

I dunno, anymore suggestions and you may have to pay me... got pay pal?

I suggest to get these two books I have to get knowledgeable about herbs and things:

"The all-in-one guide to herbs, vitamins & minerals" by Victoria Hogan

and

"The herb book" by John Lust


Those are two very informative books.

Maybe consider taking a course or attending seminars if there are any to gain more knowledge. I believe knowledge about these herbs are key to a good business.
