Hi and welcome to Flying Solo.
Thanks for joining and posting.
As a retailer, it is hard to do small, low cost experiments first unless you go online or the local markets to see if there is actual interest in the products you want to sell.
Signing a retail lease is a big commitment that could possibly last years and years so there is a fair amount of risk already built in.
At the very least, I would prepare a comprehensive budget first with cash flow projections if not a full business plan.
Good luck in your endeavours!
