Some of the local shops have done good with consignment tack,saves on inventory and gets ppl into your shop to sell there goods as well as buy.

Where abouts in ontario are you going to be located?

I know I would like to sell all kinds of stuff. New and used tack, riding apparel, grooming supplies, feed. All that stuff.

Selling feed could be hard if you do not move it fast to start I would not sell feed start with stuff that will not go bad

My advice...create a website so you can reach out to people online as well. Many people shop online, myself included so having that option should increase your business. I know a lot of tack shops sell stuff on ebay too. They create a store on there, so that is an option as well.

I have a consignment tack shop in KY I used a book called How to open a Consignment shop by L.J. Stone. I found it on Amazon .com. It was a great help. I wrote a business plan and everything. Just adjust the contracts. My business is doing pretty good. Good luck.

The only thing I'm not really sure on is how I go about getting products to sell in my tack shop. I am planning on selling new and used stuff, however am not positive on how I can get stuff to sell in my shop. Hope that makes sense? Lol
