The business afloat
From my results I can see that the people who live in Acol are evenly spread around, therefore making it harder to decide where to place the shop. If a large majority of the people were to be situated in one place then I would have been more likely to place the shop there, due to there being more people to use the shop.
I can also see that the largest amount of people are over the ages of 30. This probably means that there are a lot of people at work during the day and would not use the shop during that time. However, there a number of people over the age of sixty who would probably be at home during the day and may want to use the shop. I have to take these ages into consideration when I decide what times my shop would be open. I have to decide whether it would be worth having my shop open all day or to have it open in the morning and evening.
I can also see that most households have one to three children, and this means that I should seriously consider selling sweets because I feel that this would bring in a high percentage of my future income. Everyone who was surveyed also said that they would use a new shop in Acol, so this means that my shop would get used, it is just a question of how often people would use it and how much they would send at a time.
That was the purpose of my next question was to find this information out. I asked how often people would use they would use the shop and I received a varying set of results, from people who said that they would use the shop once a week to people who said that they would use the shop daily.
The answer that had the most people choosing it was that they would use the shop three times week. The entirety of the surveyed group also said that the shop would be beneficial to Acol and there fore they would not have any objections to it being opened. If they had had any objections to the shop being opened then they may have complained to the council, trying to prevent it. The largest majority of people who said they will use the shop said that they would spend roughly 20-30 a week. If I take this as a n average then I an see that there will be enough money made to keep the business afloat.
