Problem & Solution
Problem Worth Solving
The key problem for sex toy customer in our area is availability , selection and prices. the closest adult store is over 1 hour away this leaves our community serviced by an online store that takes 3 days for delivery and the store 1 hour away which has a large adult cinema and very limited sex toys.
Our Solution is simple, a cleverly designed sextoy shop focused on the customer and designed to welcome all types of customers not just focused one one type.
The Local Adult store. We expect our strongest market segments to be professionals who work in downtown offices, students at the local university, and people who spend weekend evenings at downtown shows, concerts, and other gathering places.
According to our research, there are 2,000 to 3,000 office workers in the first category, about 70% of whom said in our survey that they , like sextoys and wanted sex toys but didn’t trust the online option and didn’t want to go to the store 1 hour away. The university has just over 12,000 students, about two thirds of whom live on campus or in off-campus housing near downtown. Evening visitors to downtown are harder to quantify, but based on our surveys and other attempts at sampling the crowds, we estimate that they represent another 300 to 500 potential customers each weekend evening.
The Local Adult store. In the geographic area we occupy, roughly halfway between downtown and campus, there are no competitors. The closest sex shop is one our away and the fastest online delivery is 3 days away. We have over 100 000 adult in our immediate suburb without access to sex toys.
The Local Adult store: While we do not intend to do a discount offering our prices intend to be competitive. We intend to offer the most competitive sex toys in our market but still keep a 67% gp. Which will be possible by buying in volume and finding the best priced wholesale suppliers and distributors.
