We worked with Debbie throughout the planning process for expanding to two stores, and her market analysis was invaluable.  First, she helped us get a sense of the market potential of our entire trade area, which helped us decide to open a second store rather than moving our first store.  We hired her again to help narrow the options for where to open a store, and again before signing a lease. We opened our 2nd store 18 months ago. In reviewing the original forecasts vs. actual sales, I’m amazed at how accurate Debbie was on both the erosion at the first store and the potential of the second! We would definitely hire Debbie again.
