Help us open a cloth diaper store in Tucson AZ!

Hello my name is Nicole and I am interested in Opening a Cloth Diaper store in tucson. I have been doing research and to my knowledge there is not a brick and mortar cloth diaper store in tucson. I am asking if anyone would be interested in shopping at a location in tucson?? I am in the process of talking to investors and applying to brands to become a retailer. So far I have been accepted by Fuzzi Bunz.
if you are in the tucson area and would be interested in having a store in tucson please post to this thread so that I may get the support that I need to prove to investors that a store would be successful in Tucson!!
Thanks for the support!!

**************************************
I have an update!!
We (DH and I) just applied for a grant!
We have also decided to carry WAHM products along with GREEN products!
Also we have included in our business plan to create a program for low income parents to be able to afford to cd as well. We will be asking for $1 donations from customers and for every $1 donated we have found a sponsor that will match it! This money will be put into a fund for low income families and for every diaper they purchase we will give them one diaper FREE.
All of the above made our business plan very appealing to recieve a government grant! 1. by helping the environment and 2. helping our community!
Lets hope it gets approved! The grant writer was very optimistic!

Today I am going to make up a flyer and a survey I will post a link to the survey on this thread. I am also going to make a website!! Where you will be able to find all of the info and links to everything!

So please keep posting to this thread with your interest pm me your email and I will make sure to keep you posted!

ATTN ALL WAHM: If you would like us to carry your products in our store please pm me!

Thank you to all who are helping us to make this possible!

Very cool. I'm jealous as that's my dream too. There isn't a B&M store where CDing is the main focus in my area in either. There are stores that sell them, but not a big selection.

Thank you!! I am very excited and hoping all works out! If you are interested I could send you any resources I find...and then maybe you could do the same in your area!

I am so happy for you!

It is my dream to do the same here in the area of Michigan where I live (there are no cloth diaper stores in vicinity). If you could pass along any information that may be useful to me, I would appreciate it greatly. I have been trying to find grants that would apply to what I wish to do, but haven't had any success so far. Thank you.

This is great! I'd love to have a Natural Baby/Parenting store near me with cloth diapers and slings and nursing gear. Good Luck!
