Hi Cashmere! Welcome to our community! Congratulations on your online clothing boutique as well as your determination to expand to a storefront. There are many good resources available for grants or low/zero interest loans via the SBA (Small Business Association). There are also special grants available for many different groups - veterans, women, elderly, etc.
Our experts at Inc.have put together a great article on where to start your search. Tapping the SBA: What Works for Your Business.
I'd also suggest you browse the SBA site itself at Loans & Grants | The U.S. Small Business Administration | SBA.gov for lots of very helpful information.
Please feel free to browse our current discussions, start your own, or ask any questions you might have. We have very helpful members who will be glad to share their experience as you start your expansion journey.
Best of luck!
You have many options for loan. But before that make sure that your promotion plan is solid.
I also am in the retail clothing business. I eventually want to get into greeting cards, mugs, etc. Who is managing your website and what's is the name of your online boutique?
Hello everyone. I go by the name of Cashmere and I am new to the community. I just recently started an online clothing boutique for women and hope to expand it and get a storefront. Can anyone provide me with insight on where to look and apply for grants before taking out a loan?
