    Unfortunately we don't have rodeos here in Finland either. Which is a bloody shame considering that I have been going around in my boots for over quarter of century and have about 400 country albums.
    That should make me a  proper rodeo clown, right?

    Your business head isn’t screwed on right mate, you could of come over, checked out shops, watched a match or two and visited sage.
    Actually, how is Prague? I might come over.

    2 home championship games in September. The last one is 24th - 27th against Gloucestershire. If we have a bit of early snow, he'll feel right at home.

    Has Sage dragged you along to the cricket yet? Up at Chesterfield over the last few days, especially the game against Yorkshire at the weekend, it was like a different language, what with all the "By eckaslikes" and "Eeee, ecky thumps" being spoken. And I don't mean the Yorkshire people either. I felt proper posh.

    I read an article saying that wine producers had given up trying to pursue any brand/grape loyalty in the Uk as the majority of people (unless buying for a real special occasion) bought whatever was on offer at that time.

    To be fair Cisse most of what Jim Smith said went over our heads too. Luckily the players knew what he meant.

    If you could speak English you would try and get a job as a salesman in a store, but instead you are looking to open a business instead selling fine wines and offering advise on which are best with fish fingers and chips.
    Sorry Cisse, but if you have any plans of employment or running any kind of business over here, you first need to get that English sorted, especially for what you are looking to do. 
    If you was sat behind a counter just taking money, you could learn a few grunts and get by, but to really sell something you need to speak the local lingo.

    I guess I would get better pretty soon. The dialects in midlands are challenging sometimes.
    I have a VHS videotape from 1994 where Jim Smith speaks and some of it goes over my head. When Sage is with me he drops his accent so I can keep up with him. I've seen so much American tv series that I'm more of a cowboy myself than a proper Englishman. I should do something about it.

    From what I have seen there are some weird stuff going on in your stores. 
    Yoy got very good quality wines selling at same prices than the entry level wines and nobody seems to care for one way or another.

    Littleover generally is a nice suburb not sure exactly where this outlet may be but if it's Burton Road there is good access from the ring road and it will definitely need convenient car parking. Developing a Wine Merchant rather than an off licence and specialising as there are plenty of 'beer and crisps' shops - difficult to tell the difference between off licences and convenience stores nowadays. Bear in mind that several off licence chains in the UK have ceased trading in recent years. Supply chain will be critical so coming in cold (if that's the case) will make the challenge harder I would think

    There is a big UK chain called Majestic, who do in store wine tastings, offer tasting notes and pairing advice etc.
    The nearest one to Littleover is 2 miles, nearer to Derby City center.
    You'd need to compete against them, and I'd guess that your target audience may already be customers, especially if they pass the store on their commute etc. 
    Chuck in the fact that they'll deliver 6 bottles or more free of charge, and the fact they'll have more buying power than you, and you'd have to be very confident your figures add up.

    People do care sometimes, but it does depend on your potential market. I personally would have thought Littleover shops are the sort of place people call in on the way home from work and pick up a bottle or a 4 pack or the evening etc. Like Gritters says, cost is likely to be the main driver in the decision making process.
    For the sort of shop you are talking about I personally would be looking at a location where people 'visit', such as bakewell, ashbourne etc...maybe even Belper at a push if you could secure a premises on King Street, Someone may tell me im wrong and i might be, but I cant imagine Littleover being the sort of place I would venture to really unless i live or worked there. Not saying there is anything wrong with it, just what i think.
    Bakewell does already have a wine and cheese shop that seems to do well, (and a whisky shop), always seems busy, yet walk past the same shop in INTU (if its still there) and it seems empty. 
    Personally if i was going to spend more than the norm on a decent wine taking guidance on what sort of wine i should buy for the occasion its more likely to be somewhere i have visited more for leisure than general shopping.
