I have a small "new to you" store that has unique home décor and furniture items in a town of approximately 14,000. Initially, I was involved with a partner with the agreement that I would supply the merchandise from my travels and she would be in the store every day. Everything was "perfect". The store was great - had good opening sales. 1 1/2 months later she decided she wanted a hobby instead of a business. This business has been a dream of mine for a number of years. The opportunity (albeit a false one I find out) presented itself and we jumped at it. Obviously too quickly without enough research. Everything was there to indicate success - except the truth. At that point, the businesses split. As of right now, she is still in the store (now 2 stores in 1 space) for the day-to-day despite issues. We have a lease until May. If I had unlimited funds, I would cut my losses. At this point, I don't have the capital to just move or hire anyone for that matter. I have been putting in more time at the store to compensate despite juggling other ventures including another full-time commitment. In addition, the mall where we rent was recently turned over to a new owner. The new owner is making sweeping "all or nothing" decisions with regard to the building. By this I mean if the other businesses in the mall don't want to stay open, then I can't either. There are other "rules" being imposed that greatly effect my ability to advertise and promote my store. Obviously, this could be a serious impact on my business. I am trying to grow this business despite repeated attempts by my former partner and new landlord to thwart these efforts. Any suggestions in terms of a next step would be greatly appreciated. I am between a rock and a hard place at the moment and for the sake of my business and sanity I would like to find a resolution.
