Case 6: the Grande General Store

Satisfactory Essays
I think this business is worth buying because of all the room for growth opportunities not only in the original store and warehouse, but also on the land surrounding the store. There are seven acres of land which can be converted into new buildings, parking lots, or other businesses added onto the lot. The Grande General store has many state-of-the art equipment already upgraded on the 1948 building, giving it that extra leg up than other older businesses that may not have any upgrades to it. I would be wiling to invest at least $900,000 in buying the property because just with the assessed value of the current assets, the Grandes have found it to be worth $850,000. Me paying $900,000 would cover the costs of the land, buildings, equipment, and inventory, and then I know I will make my money back on the inventory and increase my profits by building onto the property and making more room for sales.
Denver is a moderate- to high-growth region with many plans for new malls, houses, and schools. If I bought this property, with 7 acres I could build onto it to create more stores as well. I know the area would be successful, as the Grande General Store already has its loyal customers, and I would create more customers and generate more revenue by possibly expanding the store, or adding new stores to the

    Grande encompasses that of a young, virginal girl but flaunts her assets like an experienced, sexual woman. I think that it is because of females that attempt to accomplish both a virginal and whore-like paradigm that influence men to expect females to adhere to these expectations. These expectations are unrealistic as it is impossible for women to be saintly and a sexy, “bad girl” at the same time. This image that Grande portrays creates the Western obsession…

    ❤ The main thing I stay away from is starchy carbs (no rice, potato, pasta, bread, cereal, etc.) and sweets (with a cheat day once a month because it’s good for your soul :D ). However it’s important to have some carbs (depending what they are) because they’re a great source of energy and certain carbs eliminate bloating. Like oatmeal. I have organic oatmeal with flax and cinnamon every morning to get my body going and to have some energy for the day. I usually eat it with 2 hard boiled eggs or a…
