My strengths were that I knew what types of products Boots sold I also knew what sections they have in the store which made it easier for me in completing the assignment.

My understanding of Boots as a business company. Boots sells products for children as well as older people; they have different sections for different aged people of the public. It provides a section for the customers that are interested in their health and beauty products; it also has a pharmacy and an optician so that they can help people with certain illnesses. Boots is a company which is aiming to grow in many other countries {D2} BIBLIOGRAHPY http://www.bized.ac.uk/compfact/boots/boots5.htm http://www.bized.ac.uk/compfact/boots/boots7.htm http://www.superdrug.com/superdrugtoday.php ?? ?? ?? ??
