Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐Asid Ashraf Unit 29 Understanding Retailing M1: Compare the function of formats and locations in retailing I will now compare the different types of store types. The main store types that I believe are shopping centres, shopping malls and in- town shopping. A shopping mall will have numerous of shops of all together where as in-town shopping centres will have high street and local shops in them. Chimes centre is in Uxbridge which is an example of in-town shopping centre. Also Blue water in Kent is an example of a shopping mall. Both of these shopping centres will have similarities and differences. Shopping centres won?t have different types of stores such as independent, supermarkets and charity shops because the space will be too much and cost a lot of money for them. High streets will have the different types of stores as mentioned above because the cost will be viable. Multiple stores will have businesses such as River Island, Water stones and House of Fraser which will be accessible to both shopping malls and high streets. Blue water Kent is easily accessible to train stations and hotels which will boost tourists to come in the shopping centre. In the in-town shopping centre such for Uxbridge Chimes is mainly central of the town where all the customers will be shopping and will know all the places really well. ...read more.

Both of the land is expensive. If you?re a tourist staying in London Bicester offer coach tours from Central London to Bicester running daily you can enjoy the countryside and experience a good shopping trip. They both have good transport link by using train services and Arriva bus services. In terms of size and scale Westfield is bigger than Bicester village. I will compare the differences and similarities between the Eden Centre and the High Street: Similarities Differences Both of land in Eden centre and high street is quite cheap. The high street does not offer any designer shops whereas the Eden centre does. Eden centre has more better transport services The high street has poor transport links in compared to the Eden centre. Both have multiple store such as HMV, Next and Top Man The Eden centre offers a parking service for its customers whereas the high street does not offer any sort of accessible service to its customers The footfall for the high street and the Eden centre is quite near and the travelling distance is quite near to each other and isn?t a much of difficulty to customers who want to shop in these particular places. The high street can take up time for customer?s journey and has more travel costs than the Eden centre also the ...read more.

Conclusion

Both also require lots of space as well to fit as many products they can in store so it looks really presentable to the customers when doing they will attract more customers to come and shop in the places. Supermarkets are usually one-level type store but may have two extra level depending how much supplies they or how much stock is in the warehouse can depend also. Hypermarkets sells TV and range of clothes and electrical goods where as a normal supermarket will not as they have a small amount of items for clothes and do not offer the full range. Tesco supermarket square feet can go up to 38,600 sq ft which offers a full range of food and other non-food items. A Wal-Mart hypermarket can go up to 150,000 square feet (14,000 m2) to 235,000 square feet (21,800 m2) Supermarkets like Tesco is everywhere around the world lots of customers go to Tesco depending where they are located majority of Tesco are based in town centres for example the main Tesco supermarket is based in the Eden Centre where they know that they will get lots of customers as its based in a busy area where there are lots of customers around shopping. There are transport links available as lots of people can get the bus using the Arriva service that they offer. ...read more.
