My small business is a local business that is located near its potential customers on Nags Head Road, Enfield. This small business is a small off lenience that it is a sole trader however it does have two employees working for him regularly.

Consumer Profile

Competition and their location/ why they are competitors.
I have identified my competition by conducting primary research and secondary research in the form of a questionnaire and the internet. Off License This business is located at Durants Road and they provide competition to my business because they just like my business are also off licenses who practically sell the same products at say different prices.
