    So I had this idea of putting all of those quirky Iphone case into one of those cardboard stands (like the ones that candy sits in) and then selling sets to stores in my city. I would offer them to grocery stores to sell at the front of their counters, convenient stores, also little stores next to schools. I pitch to the stores next to the schools that all the kids always come in and these cases are really "in style" with them.

    How do you think this will turn out? I'm not so sure about the grocery stores because they are a chain so they may not allow it, however the convenient stores may.

    These are the cases that I'm talking about:

    Those kind of cases...

    Putting aside the appeal of the cases, how do you plan to pitch this to the stores?

    How much would you charge,?
    How much would it cost you?
    Can you supply a store with these?

    It sounds like you have an idea that is poorly planned out.

    Good work on thinking outside the box. However try to plan this out some more and target smaller single owner
    stores since big stores will not spend time talking to you. If you ever have had details of a large retailer you know
    the whole floor space is under some contract with different companies. Target the smaller shops...good luck :)
