I don't do much retail but the need is there. Just take a look at the lights in any parking lot.
Hi Boris,

Don lives in a small city of about 20,000 people. The dynamics of used car lots might be different in small cities compare to the "big smoke." So, if there is a difference, that might account for it.

Sometimes small cities can mean big opportunities. I'm thinking of the example of Walmart.

When Walmart started, Kmart and other similar stores were already established in the big cities. However, they didn't bother with the smaller country cities and towns.

Sam Walton saw the opportunity, and the rest is history. Now, Walmart is much bigger than any of those which started before it did. The reason why is because in the small cities and towns, they had no similar competition!

So, don't discount those places…

Who knows what other overlooked opportunities could be there in smaller cities and towns?

Best wishes,
