  1. my parents have been toying around with opening a music store, and my bro and i have been assigned the task to research info on obtaining a dealership license from companies...do any of you know how to do that? like do you have to qualify to carry a certain company...and if so, what kind of criteria do you have to meet?? any info would be so greatly appreciated.

    I could be talking out of my patootie, but I think you'll have to have a business license first.

    I do know there might be restrictions on the product you might be able to carry based on what other stores are already offering in your region. You might want to look around, see what's absent from other stores and buy accordingly. The old "find a need and fill it" principle.

    Hope this helps.
