Enterprise Business Studies GCSE Coursework 2003 By Tom Southern Contents - Introduction - Exectutive Summary - Company description - Product Information - Product/Compertition Rescearch Introduction For this piece of coursework I am going to produce a viable business plan for a business of my choice. This idea is to set up a mens clothing store. To aid the project I shall be rescearching all aspects of setting up and running such a business including- Finance, conduction market rescearch, staff and ownership options, and the possibility of future expansion. Exectutive Summary Type of business: Retail. Shop Idea/Plan: To set up a mens clothes store which targets customers in their late teens to mid-thirtys who like to appear fassionable. The store shall stock well known lables such as DKNY, FCUK, Lambretta, Ralph Laurren, Pringle, YSL, Ben Sherman, ect. Size and location: The Location of this store is critical, as it is a fassion store it bust be located in the town center as this is where the competition is based and people like to shop in the same area, this stratagy may also attract spontanious buyers who walk past the store. ...read more.


Advertising: I think adertising should be applied in areas where it will gain the attention of my target range (youngersters with a high desposible income), therefor I think flyers handed out around clubs and bars in bournemouth such as Elements, Bar Med, Circo, Berlins ect, will be successful. A radio advertising campaign on Fire Fm or 2cr could attract the right sort of attention. I think the idea of a big opening is not a stratagy I shall use as I feel this approach is tacky. Staff: Staff should not be a problem as there are many people in Bournemouth looking for jobs in retail. Sucessful aplicants will need to be lively and be concious of their aperance as this will reflect on the store, a dress code shall not be enforced as this gives employees a chance to be individual. Constraints: My main constraint shall be compertition which is fairly fierce in Bournemouth. Other shops in the same market sector in Bournemouth include- Envy, Top Man, River Island, Spira. My second main constraint is the money available to cover start up costs, the more money available the more flexible my plan shall be to changes. ...read more.


This is an ideal location as it attracts many impulse buyers and window shoppers. They are a national company with stores all over Great Britain. Topman stores are usually linked with their sister company TopShop which specilises in womens clothing. In Bournemouth only the lower floor of Topshop (womens wear) is wheelchair accesable as Topman is upstairs. The store is only accessable by foot because Commercial road is pedestrianalised, but there is a NCP multi story car-park about 300 meters away. The Store is in the main commercial area of bournemouth but is not accessable by car but compramise has to be made.
