Doing business on Main Street
Taking over failing businesses is never easy.
New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, San Diego: In this show you meet George Granoff, a corporate executive turned entrepreneur and small business owner.
He bought and turned around a failing group of art supply stores. Ever since graduating from college, he's worked in huge retail companies. He learned a lot. Then he took those years of experience to apply to a bankrupt chain of retail shops, The Art Store.
George's extraordinary business experience taught him much about scale, critical mass, and volume. Having run huge retail chains, George just couldn't imagine a business that is so small you can't enjoy the benefits of size.
To start a business from scratch would be too slow for George, so he bought an existing business in distress. The Art Store was a bargain.
Like George, you don't have to start a business from scratch. You can always buy a business!
