Vendors on the street couldn’t find other jobs. In order to survive, they had no choice but to be vendors on the street. This group of people happened to become the pioneers of this era and made a fortune.
In the blink of an eye, Yu Bing welcomed summer break of her sophomore year.
Yu Bing had started looking for shops near the school before the end of the semester. She searched for more than a month before finally finding a suitable shop.
As soon as it was the holidays, Yu Bing entrusted Xiao Li and Xiao Lin to the kind landlady for a week while she went to Yang City alone to buy goods. At this time, everyone liked to go to the local clothing factory nearby to buy goods, but they didn’t know that the clothing style in the north was completely incomparable to that in the south.
Yang City was a special economic zone designated by the country after the reform and opening up. As a trading port since ancient times, it had a certain advantage. In addition, Hong Kong, which was only across the sea, had close trading relations with foreign countries. Hong Kong was synonymous with fashion and prosperity.
After the clothes were transported to the shop in the capital by Yu Bing, everyone was in awe. There were dozens of styles of dresses. There were flare dresses, tight-body dresses, cheongsam dresses, sleeveless dresses, a-line dresses, four-piece dresses, eight-piece dresses, and so on. The styles were all in the fashion style of Hong Kong, and Hong Kongs fashion was in the style of foreign fashion. One could imagine how attractive this novelty was to customers.
This batch of goods included blouses, pants, and skirts. Because it was summer, skirts accounted for two-thirds of the goods.
Because there wasn’t enough money, Yu Bing even used Xiao Shengs money. She bought a total of 1,200 goods in one go. When she was busy, Xiao Li and
Xiao Lin helped out in the shop. In less than a week, the goods were all sold.
Yu Bing immediately went to Yang City to purchase the second batch of goods. This time, she learned her lesson and saved the phone numbers of all the shops. Then, she brought back 3,000 pieces of clothes. The people who bought clothes helped spread the name of the shop, so more people were waiting to ask for the goods this time. In just a week, there were less than 1,000 pieces
After Yu Bing confirmed the style with the shopkeeper over the phone, she paid half the deposit. The rest would be paid after she received the goods. Yu Bing earned 73,790 yuan during the two-month summer break.
During this period, some shoppers realized that Yu Bings shops styles were very special, but no one knew where Yu Bing got the clothes from. They began to ask around. Some relatives and friends who had been to Yang City on business immediately knew where the supply came from. After the origins of Yu Bings goods were revealed, many shop owners went south to Yang City to buy goods as well.
After Yu Bing made a lot of money, many shops in the capital began to sell clothes from Yang City. However, Yu Bings shop had already made a name for itself, so when others mentioned shops with clothes from Yang City, they would think of Yu Bings shop first.
Before school started, Yu Bing made another trip to Yang City. The reason she came personally was that she was about to start taking the premium route. Previously, she was the only one in the capital who had goods from Yang City and those styles could be easily sold by other merchants as well. However, things were different now. They were everywhere on the streets, so she had to follow the principle of “I have what others don’t, and when they have it I got a better one.”
Because there were still classes going on at school, Yu Bing hired a neighbor who knew her well to help sell goods and began to plan to develop her own clothing brand.
Yu Bing had a certain level of design experience. Coupled with the influence of fashion in the future, she began to design blueprints in the second half of the year. She hired 15 women and established a small clothing production line to specialize in producing her own brand.
Yu Bing had designed winter clothes, so there was still plenty of time. The location of the shop was no longer near the school this time.
Because the shop focused on mid-to high-end brands, the shop’s location was downtown. The renovation design was decorated in the minimalistic style of the future.
Yu Bing hired five shop assistants and nurtured them according to the standards of salespeople in the future. In this era, where there was no awareness of service standards, this move helped Yu Bing retain many esteemed guests.
The opening date of Yu Bings shop was November 1st. It happened to be late autumn to early winter, so it happened to be the time for winter outfits. The fashionable clothes attracted the attention of many people and were slightly ahead of the designs of this era and the shop had better service. All kinds of factors combined made Yu Bings brand famous among many middle and high-end consumers.
When Yu Bings career reached a peak, Xiao Sheng received a family visit leave.
The two of them had not reunited since the last time they parted. During this period, they had been relying on letters and the only photo they had taken together to satisfy their longing.. They originally thought that they would only be separated for a year and a half, but who knew that they would only meet again after two years?
