Selling tailoring materials in Nigeria

As I was coming back from school today I decided to count how many tailors were in our street, I counted over 16 tailors in our small street alone, but people selling the necessary tailoring materials were not more than two!

In fact from my observation I can say that selling tailoring materials is very profitable in Nigeria and you can earn as much as you could in the business.

I have never seen any community or town without tailor, people are sewing new cloths everyday, and tailors are buying materials need from the sellers always.

Let check this out: One row of linen which contains about 50yards is N6,000 buying it from a wholesaler. The gain on a row might be N1000 but for you as a retailer that is selling it at N125 per yard which is the general sales price, the gain is N250 you make times four as gain.

Is this not profitable? Yes it is!
