  • Tennessee Shoe Store Licenses and Permits

    The birthplace of country and blues has become far more than the agrarian state it once was. Tennessee's major urban centers are important cities with significant economies. And Tennessee fully supports economic growth and development -- which may be why it doesn't impose too much regulation on business. Unlike many states, Tennessee gives counties and cities significant leeway to decide on their own regulations -- often making state licenses required only at the discretion of local jurisdictions.

    In Tennessee, retail businesses of all sorts including toy stores, clothing shops, photography businesses and general merchandisers need licenses and permits. In most cases, retail businesses take relatively few licenses – however being registered for all state and local taxes is important as is having any needed general business licenses.
