Why don't you just relocate one of your trusted Hawaii employees for a month until he can hire, train, and transition over to the new employees?
Lots of reasons, mainly because we cater to a completely different clientele here versus LA so it doesn't transition well. I'm planning on going up to LA to train and open the shop and fly the LA guy to Hawaii to train here before we open LA.
I am doing an interest check here to see if there is a market for ALDENS in CANADA. I may know a possible contact that may want to expand to Canada with the shoes. It will be done via online and shipped out of Toronto. As for inventory I am not sure as we will carry a handful of shoes / boots - guessing the most popular. I am unsure as I have just started to read the thread. I still have to see how much pricing will be.
