Hi,

I am not expert in starting a grocery business, but starting this kind of business is the same as other kind of business undertaking.

First you make a feasibility study whether it is feasible to establish a grocery store on your choosen location, food? dry goods?General merchandising? who are your Suppliers?, payment cash or credit terms? Determine the type of enterprise you want to do, single proprietorship? partnership or corporation? Capital? Location? Location is important. business name DTI/SEC? mayor's permit, sanitary permit? BIR and others. These are just a important starting steps.

Hello,

The very first thing to consider is location. A good location will attract good customers but also good distributors that will offer products to you.

Cheers!

Kung gusto mo makontak ang mga suppliers ng mga groceries, tambay ka lang maghapon sa mga groceries....sa loob ng isang linggo siguradong makikita mo ang mga suppliers na nagdedeliver sa kanila. kausapin mo yung salesman at sabihin mong magbubukas ka rin ng mini groceries.

Sigurado magkakandarapa pa yung salesman na kontakin ka dahil pandagdag ka sa benta nila. ALam naman natin na karamihan sa mga ahente ay umaasa lang sa commission dahil maliit lang ang kanilang basic salary.

People asking questions lost in confusion,
Well I tell them there's no problem,
Only solutions,
Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I've lost my mind,
I tell them there's no hurry...
I'm just sitting here doing time,

The other ka entreps are correct in saying start a feasibility study first.  Once you're done with that, start sourcing your possible suppliers.  Take the time to put this data together since this will be valuable. 
Make sure that you are abreast with what your competitors are up to.  It will also be helpful if you will take up some seminars regarding inventory management, security systems to avoid theft and pilferage and other classes that will enable you to set up your business better.

Hope this helps!!

i suggest you make a list of the items na sa tingin mo ay mabili. like sabon panlaba, powder soap, kape, toyo, suka and the like. then, find out kung magkano ang bentahan ng ganon sa ibang stores at kung anong mga sizes ang mabili. then you can scout where to buy those sa mas mababang presyo like sa macro and other wholesale stores. after months of being in business, marami na ang pupunta sayong mga ahente. i think cash basis ang purchase mo pero afterwards, depending on how many you purchase, magbibigay din yan ng terms by check pero the most is 7 days siguro.

If you're in Manila better try SuySing they sell very low priced grocery products and they also give discounts. Although you have to check their items very well since with their huge inventories some defective and expiring products might get into your purchases.
