Everyone in my postal code got an interesting piece of what appeared to be junk mail in their mailbox today. It was an announcement that a watch & sunglass chain out of Edmonton is opening a store in Kitsilano this November. Watch IT! has found a storefront location on West 4th between Arbutus & Yew – at least its not another baby/maternity store! What was different about this piece of direct mail is that it included a letter stating that Watch IT! is looking for a local resident to step up and invest in this franchise:
Like all new stores, this location presents a unique opportunity as our customers often become our franchise owners. If you are entreprenuial, love retail and fashion, then this might be just the business venture that you are looking for. To find out more about owning this Watch IT! boutique, please have a look through the franchise section of our website or feel free to contact me direct at 1-877-404-2824.
This letter is signed by the Prez, Darren Bondar. Smart move Darren – that kind of forward thinking will ensure you success in Kits! There are too many business owners that just open up shop on West 4th and expect to be a success without really understanding the market and neighborhood. And they don’t usually last that long.
