Response to the question

In summary, the report is quite basic. The report describes The Loot and a number of products that there sell. However the report lacks detail and doesn't go further in explain the reason behind the business model. The student states that the website 'The loot' is able to offer discounts of between 25% to 70%. However the student fails to state the reason for the large discounts. The student could explain how this website is able to discount the products to the price offered.

Level of analysis

The report states that this store is a 'unique concept', however why is this unique? Personally, I feel that this isn't unique and a number of other businesses have this type of discount retailing. The student could include their opinion, however there need to be able to justify their opinion though some reasonable means.

Quality of writing

Some parts of the report doesn't make sense, as the report states 'The range of jeans is very wide, and picking the right shade can be a problem'. As the student states that there is a large selection of products to choose from, however the student also states that it's difficult to find a certain shade. This is quite unclear and the student needs to be more explicit within their writing.
