For example, one of general strengths is that the location that Boots is situated is in a city centre which means that it must be bustling with activity, which in turn means that Boots could getting more and more footfall than anywhere else possible. As well as this, there are also some disadvantages for instance one of the main ones being that if Boots decide to place their store somewhere distant and remote to a city then this significantly means that they will lose an advantages than their other competitors which can be local pharmacies. ...read more.
