There are a lot of advantages for a business, this pie chart (shown below) is showing the results I gathered from asking strangers if they thought Crawley needed more shops, as you can see the majority says yes Crawley does need more shops. The results I gathered mostly supports my view that there is a ‘gap in the market’ for a new store in Crawley, from this pie chart even suggests that Crawley need more shops, its citizens think so…the conclusion I can make with these results is that Crawley needs more shops, but it depends on what the demands are of the citizens and then after getting that data you can choose what type of store will be best in that town, the type of store that you can make a lot of money from.
