In doing so, it was possible to assess the competition in the market, hence enabling us to position ourselves more effectively and strategize on a long term basis. During the course of this project, I was also fortunate enough to be able to study the promotional campaigns carried out in the store.
This report contains the findings arrived after detailed analysis of the data received through observations made at the competitor’s stores and personal interviews conducted with the customers at various department stores.
