You had no chance with a cost like that, add at least one if not two noughts on the end and you might have been passed. Even if you get stock you would have to turn it almost all over in the first two weeks to get enough money in to pay your suppliers. Most suppliers would want you on 30 day terms, maybe 14 days, in the current downturn. You may be able to strike a deal with your suppliers that they send out the goods for you on receipt of the order, but this adds to the delivery delay. Thats why the sofa/bedding website often quote 5 weeks - they make the stock when they have orders to cut down stock holding.
