Dollar Store, one Orlando couple makes plans to open three more for each of their kids. October 01, 2012
Woodrow and Silvia Wills decided to open a Dollar Store after several years of putting it off. They had been working full time with three kids, but when Silvia lost her longtime job, they decided it was the right time to get started.
They began their search online and compared different franchises, “We looked at a lot of other services that do the same thing, but the quality just wasn’t there. A lot of companies could help us build it out and also franchise and we weighed the options and we decided we wanted to go this way and be privately owned, family owned.” They decided to contact Dollar Store Services because there was no obligation and because there were no franchise fees. They would be their own boss.
They began the process of looking for a good location, . “We looked all around Orlando and neighboring communities, and we passed by this place a couple times, and we said we need to go in here and find out—it was such a nice area we just knew it was going to be way out of the ballpark for us, right in the middle of Sam’s Club and Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market. Dollar Store Services sent out a prospectus, did all the negotiating, got the best rate, and free rent.” Their store was built-out by the same service. . “We looked at a lot of other stores that do the same thing and the quality just wasn’t there. We get so many people that come in and the first things they say is ‘wow this is awesome’ and it’s all because we took (Dollar Store Services) advice.”
The Wills expressed plans to open three more stores in the future for each of their kids, and to look into some of the other business concepts available with Dollar Store Service’s parent company, Discount Retail Store Services.

Woodrow went on to say; “There might be someone watching this video and you may be feeling like, I can’t do this, I’m not smart enough, I’m not educated enough, I don’t have enough money. If you have that burning desire to do something and to have something for your family, you’ve got to step out. Just do it.”
