Conclusion

Therefore according to my survey and based on my analysis I would like to draw my conclusion that the shopping centre along the Oxford Road from the police headquarters to the roundabout is in fact of higher order than the shopping centre in the High Street area of Kidlington. I recognised that Sainsbury's was built in South Kidlington ten years ago drawing more shoppers to walk a longer distance to shop in the area. And as Sainsbury's is a big supermarket selling wide range of daily necessities thus drives out many low order shops. That is the reason why there are less low order shops in there now and it shaped what a different picture of today making South Kidlington into a high order shopping area. However if I had a second chance to do the course again I would like to conduct the survey at different periods of the day and not only conducting on weekdays but have to include Saturdays, Sundays and holidays as well. I should also have to put in more time and manpower to ask more shoppers and get a wider shoppers' coverage, then I think the result would be more accurate and appropriate to the fact. In doing my survey and analysis, I have used pie charts and bar charts illustrations, comparison skills and close questionnaire technique. END ...read more.
