Conclusion

E-mail: you wouldn't know if your information is received. Letters: your letter might get lost in the post. Fax: you wouldn't know if your information is received. {M3, D1} EVALUATION I have had many weaknesses as well as many strengths in completing this assignment. My strengths were that I knew what types of products Boots sold I also knew what sections they have in the store which made it easier for me in completing the assignment. My weakness was that I weren't able to do my research properly, when I found information I didn't save it so when it came to the parts where I needed that information I didn't have it and I had to waste time looking for the information. My understanding of Boots as a business company. Boots sells products for children as well as older people; they have different sections for different aged people of the public. It provides a section for the customers that are interested in their health and beauty products; it also has a pharmacy and an optician so that they can help people with certain illnesses. Boots is a company which is aiming to grow in many other countries {D2} BIBLIOGRAHPY http://www.bized.ac.uk/compfact/boots/boots5.htm http://www.bized.ac.uk/compfact/boots/boots7.htm http://www.superdrug.com/superdrugtoday.php ?? ?? ?? ??
