Neighborhood Parcel (“Stores”) are retail service businesses that offer packaging, shipping, and mailing services, and various office services, all provided through a variety of carriers, vendors, and service providers. Among the office services provided are fax, copying, notary, Document Destruction, and the sale of office supplies. Our Neighborhood Parcel Stores are targeted at both business and local consumers. With Neighborhood Parcel’s relationship with the major carriers, The United States Post Office, and various freight companies, our Stores can offer a wide variety of options for consumers. The market for the services you will be selling is fairly developed and well-established, and the goods and services you will offer will be sold to the general public. You will have to compete for a share of this market with other businesses and companies offering the same services, including, for example, UPS Stores and various branch locations of the United States Post Office. Generally, our Stores do a larger volume of business during the Christmas Holiday Season than during other periods of the year.
