When your store opens, it’s best to ensure that you have the appropriate amount and types of insurance coverage to protect your business. For example, if you have a company vehicle, you need commercial auto insurance to protect that asset. Additionally, if you have at least one employee, you’ll need worker’s compensation insurance to comply with legal regulations and protect your workers in the event of an accident along with your business.

When you’re running a flooring store, you should learn how to delegate tasks. Although you may want to take ownership over every detail, you won’t be able to keep up with everything when you’re managing a store and running a business. Instead, you should rely on a skilled team of customer service representatives, salespeople, flooring experts, installation experts, and more to handle aspects of your business that are outside of your scope of practice such as managing your store. Also, you should prioritize tasks in your store based on their time sensitivity, urgency, and other factors to consider.
