A sort of xbox coop business. Right now I have the stock and you guys have the passion and knowledge. It might be a slow burner but we can work it all out.
3 Months on - Just seen this... Sounds like a Great Idea! I have been trying to start a small business myself and have found that there is either no demand, OR too much demand for the man hours I can put in; Its seems to work by word of mouth with things like xbox mods... I reckon this is a genuinely great Idea and If you wanted to give it a trial I would be happy to volunteer to help out!
Im not a big console lover (I'm a PC Keyboard and Mouse gamer) but I do understand the console market and know the products and since from today onwards I will be living in Wells, just a few miles away from Al in Bridgwater and from January 7th my work hours are going to be much shorter and 90% night work (11pm-7am), I am happy to help out and here if any help is needed for logistics, website design/updates/content work, shipping and anything else you need as the majority of the daytime will be mine and I would quite happily help you guys out to try and shift some of your masses of stock. Im also pretty friendly with a few of the owners and managers for some of the Independent and Franchise Games and/or PC & Console Hardware shops in various towns in Somerset, S.Wales and Wiltshire who I am more then happy to hit up and see if they would take some stock or at least advertise it for you.
Just let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
