Ask a Business Lawyer. Get Business Law Questions Answered ASAP.
That is a fairly complicated question, but here some basic steps.
1. You need to decide what type of company you will create, a corporation, a partnership with other partners, an limited liability company.
2. Once you decide, you would file for a certificate of formation in your state through your secretary of state's office.
3. Once you have that you would also apply for a tax ID number through the IRS.
4. After that, you identify locations, and get agreements in place with shoe distributors.
I am keeping it fairly broad, but if you have specific questions, let me know. What state are you in?
You would contact whichever brand of shoes you wish to Sell. Here is a good resource. http://www.pasbdc.org/resources/start-up/business-checklist
If you have any additional questions let us know. Otherwise can you rate the answer?
Unfortunately they can do that as long as they are not discriminating against you or retaliating against you. If you could accept and rate the answer I would appreciate it. We do not get credit for assistance until you do.
Thay does sound suspicious. Do you feel you are being discriminated or retaliated against?
We can do a phone call if you like for an additional charge?
You may have a claim then. You need to discuss this with an experienced employment law attorney to help pursue a possible claim.
Ok for a phone call?
Ok. Please rate so I can close it out. If you contact your city or state bar association they can refer you to a good employment law attorney.
