Default Hello CACO from AAI in Lansing, MI!!!!!!

Hello CACO members!

Born and raised in Lansing, MI.

Been into car audio since the early nineties.

Started an eBay store in 2004 and have been buying, selling, and collecting ever since...

I am going to be thinning my collection of PPI, Orion, Soundstream, Kicker, Clarion, etc. very soon...

Hope everyone is doing well...

JD

Default Lansing Michigan market

We need a proper store in the area. I am really interested in seeing the numbers that the big box's in the area put up. Are Best Buy and ABC making any money in the area? Electronic Outlet is the ONLY (Correct me if I am wrong please) stand-alone mom and pop shop and it is bare bones, nothing an enthusiast would be looking for. If money is being spent at Best Try and ABC in the area I don't see why a GOOD and NICE shop can't work. Flint has a market that supports plenty of shops. Jackson I think has at least 2 shops. There is a 40,000 person institution here with many people having cars AND money, and some of them have stupid money. If you park your R8 V10 outside under a carport, I know I can sell you and your old Maserati roommate friend a built-in radar W/ diffusers. Boom, minimum $3000 from two guys.

I really need to see if there is a sustainable business here W/ daily Best Buy type work...NAV, Insurance work, Remote Starts and the like. Anyone work in a Lansing, MI ABC Warehouse or Best Buy and want to shed some light on the numbers?

Personally, I would NEVER go to ABC Warehouse or Best Buy for ANYTHING mobile audio or video related...

Grand Ledge, 15 minutes from Lansing, has a mom and pop shop right now...I can't remember the name of it, though, and haven't been there since I was in need of an install kit that I couldn't get at Best Buy or ABC (so why did I think that place would have it?)...

Back in the day, Lansing had several local stores and some of them had multiple locations...House of Car Stereo, Car Stereo One, and Skory Autosound. Not bothering to mention Electronic Outlet...haven't been there in years because the last time I was there the inventory level was nearly non existent...and, nothing I would have wanted even if I was actually looking to buy something.

The way of the mom and pop shops is all but dead and that's sad. You cannot compete with Internet pricing (or Meijer and WalMart for that matter) on any gear whether it's an amp, speakers, subs, enclosure, install kits, etc. Retail space is still at a premium and the margins are just too low...regardless of what they are doing at the big box stores...and, with advancements in OEM sound systems, I just don't know that the market demand for aftermarket is there...

Everyone seems to be a DIY these days...thank you YouTube! for showing me a video for anything I'd ever need to learn how to do.

Might be able to get some better information with regard to demand if you post an ad on Craigslist...

In order to keep the doors open, the shop would likely need to be into mobile audio/video/nav, home theater, auto detailing, window tinting, rims and tires, etc...a full service shop. Might need to throw in a snack counter, too...
