Location Location simply means where a particular business is. There are many factors that affect the location of a certain business. These are: * Skilled workers -skilled workers affect the location of a business because if there are no skilled workers, there is no skilled force to do the work required to be done. * Cost of labour - if the cost of labour is too high, the business would not be able to function because the business has to keep operating costs as low as possible so they would be able to pay their skilled workers and everything. * Local government charges - local government charges like council tax affect the location of a business because if the business is located in the middle of town the charges like council tax would be higher than any business located outside or outskirts of town would cost less in the council tax area. * Financial help - financial help come in different forms like government grants, rent-free periods, and job creation grants. The government gives help to companies that help them put people back to work like Nissan & Toyota who put people up north back to work in their factories and the government helped them because they were not working and not paying taxes and they were on the dole ...read more.


* The staff or employees, this is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing transport links because the employees would be there to serve or attend to the customers when they come and if they are not there, the business cannot run. Out of town retail parks are so popular, this is because the price of land in that area is cheaper than the price of land in Central Business Districts (town centres). These areas are also good value for money because in the town centres, the shops are small and they cannot stock as much things in the shop while in retail parks, the shops are big enough to stock as much as they paid for. Out of town retail parks are also popular for people who want to avoid the crowd of the town centres. There is also free parking at the retail parks, which are available to the people who can drive.

This affects the business because all those other businesses are a competition to Makida's dressmakers because their shops are bigger and flashier and so the customers don't notice the business unless they come really close to that area. There are roads linking Oxford Street but the roads are always blocked due to traffic congestion which is an advantage to Makida's dressmakers so the customers can have a good look at what the business has to offer. Oxford street is highly populated which makes the area even more expensive for people to live in and makes it hard for Makida's dressmakers to survive because of all the problems it has due to it's smallness which still doesn't affect the fact that it still has to pay higher business rates like council tax because it is in a famous area. Makida's dressmakers don't employ too many staff because it is a small business but the staffs have to live around the area so that they don't have difficulties getting to work on time. All these information is different from the information on Morrison's because Morrison's don't have to pay much business rates like council tax because it is located in an out of town retail park also it is affected by passing trade a lot because it located on a commuter road. ?? ?? ?? ??
