I have investigated and am sure that Discount Retail Store Services, aka Dollar Store Services, Discount Party Stores, Mailbox Stores, Fitness Center Developers and Teen Stores are complete failures due to poor development, outright lies and the overall success rate (should say failure rate.) Although the services that are offered are seemingly complete and impressive, the truth is that the blueprint of these businesses are destined for failure due to the obvious reasons. Products are controlled by JW Imports which is seemingly the owners initials, James Wichert and are just bad products that are recommended by the company that can be profitable for them but not the owners. The locations that are found for the businesses are not special by any means, and if you think or believe the hype the company uses, which is the largest retail developer in the world, which they may be, but they must be given the honorary title of the largest retail developer of failed business in the world. I simply investigated the 193 videos on Dollar Store Services which they use as a support system to their success on YOUTUBE and found out that out of the thousands of stores they claim to have developed, that over 90% of all the businesses they are responsible for creating have failed and continued to fail. The references offered to the potential clients seem to be just a handful of businesses that have somehow been lucky enough to make it pass the first six months. After making calls to these references, the majority of these businesses are less than sixty days old. Make sure you specifically ask for references that are over one year old and its ok to ask for any store in any area because they cannot provide what don't exist. That goes double for the other businesses this company develops. They have been in business for over 17 yrs., and yet I was unable to find 10 businesses still in business combined in all the businesses they develop over 1 year in business. This company has opened only 4 or 5 stores in two to three years in the Teen Stores and Fitness concepts, and have opened a Ten Dollar Clothing Store type business that on the business licenses have been operating for years and years yet have less than a handful of these businesses open between all of them. This company obviously has hired very strong personnel in the fields of sales, publicity and marketing. I believe the reason for very little feedbck and whiplash to this company is due to the following two reasons, first, the owners believe they are the reason they have failed and second, the owner of Discount Retail Store Services pays his bills and does not draw negative attention to himself by not being credit worthy. In other words, he pays his bills completely. If you believe that the smoke and mirrors you see from the marketing aspect is impressive, I would have to agree. Let's see the numbers on how many of these stores are still in business out of the thousands they opened. They may refuse this information because they are not a franchise and legally do not have to disclose this information but by the company's own testimony, they contact each business on a consistent basis, so obviously they would know who is and who is not in business. The BBB account is under Dollar Store Services only and has many complaints and keeps its A+ rating based on their paid membership to the BBB. This has taken thousands of calls, money out of my pocket to go through their process and much of my time to provide the absolute truth. Thanks to the information provided by a upper management employee who recently joined this company, I am confident on his information as well as my own findings. Ask and they shall speak the truth.
