My name is Ed Cacace. I own a building in Morrisville, Pa (Bucks County). I ran across this web site when I was trying to find how much booths rent for in an antique malls. I have some space in the building, approximately 4000 SF on the first floor which was considered retail space and 8000 SF of space on the second floor which was originally office space. 19,000 cars per day drive down the street and another 30,000 cars per day go down Route 1 between NJ and PA which is one block from the property. I thought about breaking the 4000 SF space up into 100 square foot booths with a center isle between the booths with shelves and show cases to start. I was going to invest in a point of sale program with inventory tracking and a customer data base. I was thinking about renting the spaces for $300.00 per month with a 6 month lease followed by a month to month after that. I was planning on being open 7 days per week with one employee during the week and two to three on weekends. I would pay all sales tax for the tenants and take a fee (I have seen 10% which covers credit card fees and having employees). As mentioned, there I would supply the employees in the store. It would not require the tenant to put time into the store except to restock their booth. I was thinking of upcycled furniture and antiques, not limiting the tenant to just selling antiques. What is your opinion of something like this since you have been around it before? I have added two pictures of the building for you opinion as well. The space would become available around July 1, 2016. I was going to try to pre-lease and open with a grand opening including an outdoor event to try to draw people to the area.
