Great Tips from Successful Retailers

My name is Debbie Garcia and I am a full-time pre-analytical technician at the University of Chicago hospital as well as a mom. One day my father and I were talking, he said why don’t we open a business together. He has always been business oriented. One day, I woke up and said, "hey why not", I have some money saved and what a better way to invest it. So immediately we got the ball rolling. We opened our store Treasure Island in Worth, Illinois. Our Grand Opening was October 1, 2017. My brother runs the store full time. Our inventory came from items we had in storage and with an amazing amount of donations from family and friends. Store Pic
