The World's Largest Resource for the Cart, Kiosk, and Temporary Retail Industry

Winter 2012 Specialty Retail Report’s 16th Annual Guide to Cart & Kiosk Startup Packages

The annual guide to hundreds of products tailored for your specialty retail business.

We have the numbers to prove it. The slow economy might be a drag on some sectors of retail but in specialty retail where the barrier to entry is relatively low, the sales are on the upswing. The first edition of Specialty Retail Report’s new Specialty Retail Pulse, an analysis of industry sales data, shows that the specialty retail sales category within North American regional and super-regional centers saw a year-on-year sales growth of 10.6% from 2009 to 2010. And that trend continues to surge upward.

If you’re looking to launch a new specialty retail business this year or are considering expanding, this annual listing of cart and kiosk products is a great place to begin. The listings give you a peek into products made for the specialty retail market. There are toys, makeup, demonstration products, and yes, cellphone accessories. New concepts and services also appear on the list and they supplement perennially popular categories.

Take the ideas from the list and supplement them with our article on finding the right location for your new business and find out how shopping centers around the country are looking to launch retailers just like you into business.

Throughout the year, you can find updated listings and new product concepts on our sister website, retailresourceguide.net. Here’s wishing you every professional success in your business endeavor. Specialty Retail Report is committed to providing you with the savvy business strategies you will need to come out ahead of the competition and surpass your bottom line.

Inclusion of a company in these listings does not constitute or imply an endorsement, recommendation, favoring or warranty of any company, product or service by Specialty Retail Report or Pinnacle Publishing Group, Inc. Readers are advised to do their homework and research before pursuing new business opportunities.
