If you're considering opening your first Ashley Furniture HomeStore, you may be wondering what kind of fees, costs, and duties are involved. Here's what you need to know:
First, it's important to understand that our licensing program is not a franchise program. This means that there are no fees or franchise costs associated with becoming an Ashley Furniture licensee. Instead, you'll simply need to purchase the furniture from us and handle the expenses involved with importing it into your country.
As far as duties are concerned, these will vary depending on your country. You'll need to research and understand the specific duties and taxes that apply to your location in order to accurately budget for the costs of opening your HomeStore.
Overall, the main costs associated with opening an Ashley Furniture HomeStore are purchasing the furniture and handling the expenses involved with importing it into your country. While there are no fees or franchise costs, you'll need to budget for these costs in order to get your store up and running. If you have any questions or need guidance on the specific costs and duties that apply to your location, don't hesitate to contact us. We're here to help you succeed as an Ashley Furniture retailer.
