Hmmm... Lingerie?

My husband & I own/operate a store in a really small town where there are very few stores nearby. We sell clothing & do DVD rentals, but the clothing doesn't really sell. I'm thinking of adding a lingerie section... sexy loungewear & lacy things. What are some thoughts on this?

  • In a really small town like Mayberry RFD? As someone who grew up in a small town, you may shock some old ladies into an early grave. Also, I don't think people will be bringing their kids into your shop to rent DVD's.
    I think it's a great idea, but many people in small towns are rather "backwoods." However, if you have a little back room for the "lacy" stuff, I'd say go for it!

  • I think you'd be better off with crafts or toys. Like in the kids section put up a rack of toys and candy, in the action section, maybe some t-shirts and cool action things, in comedy maybe some funny gag gifts, and in a seperate part of the store put in some lsexy stuff with the adult movies.
