In addition to QB they sell some other known brands like Bee Mines, Donna Marie, CURLS, Darcy's, Mixed Chicks, My Honey Child, Taliah Waajid, and others I haven't heard of. They just opened in July. I could get into some trouble here !

Have any of you been to the HBB lately? It seems they are having trouble making enough sales off of hair and skin products and will not be ordering any new stock until they can get the Remy Hair sales up.

They are having a sale on certain lines this weekend so please do support them if you want the store to stay in business.

(I'm not in any way affiliated with the HBB, I just like being able to buy things on the ground.)

Hmmmm, that is interesting to hear. I was there a couple of weeks ago and they barely had any of the popular items in stock and she said it was because those vendors never really stuck to their shipping plans. For example she had been waiting on Qhemets, HairVeda, and a few other lines to send in their shipments for weeks. She said she would order a certain amount from Qhemets and they would only send her some of it at a time... made no mention about weave sales affecting the stock.

I've heard that from someone else, about the vendors not supplying stock on schedule. She's got a good amount of HairVeda right now but absolutely no Qhemets.

They have a little sign at the register with the info on poor sales dated 5/23/11. I can see how this could be a difficulty as the prices for Remy and the usual hair products just don't compare in terms of revenue.

Oh ok, I was there before 5/23. You know what is odd though, I am not a fan of her FB page, but sometimes I go on there to see what the sales are. I noticed that she made comments about not adding certain items because they are struggling-- but then a few weeks later they will add some lines that I NEVER ever heard of.

Not sure what business strategy she is working with, but I think she may be making some crucial mistakes. Why load up on Miss Jessies, Carol's Daughters, and Kinky Curly when those can be found essentially anywhere now? Don't get me wrong, I think people buy them from there, but they are never out when I visit. Then some of these lesser name brands seem to collect dust in the store. I think her focus may need to be on mostly one area... not weaves, bags, and earrings. But hey, I never ran a business... so maybe she got this.

I had this exact conversation with a friend this morning and we came to the consensus that maybe she needs a better business plan or someone to help with her PR. I'm not a frequent Facebook user, so I usually don't know about sales. There are others who would probably frequent the store if there were better advertising.
