With more market share, Tesco is also able to dominate the market by opening more stores to win their competitors. For example, Tesco can open more stores where they think that those area are lack of supermarkets and by bringing in Tesco into that area, they can offer cheaper price for their products because it has the purchasing power of buying in bulk so that they can get a cheaper price compare to a small supermarket whom has a limited purchasing power. Tesco can also increase the average money spent on each transaction from the customers. For example, Tesco can offer volume discounts if customers purchase a big volume of products. Besides that, Tesco is able to give a reduction in price if their consumer spent above a certain price.

The supermarket industry tends to non-cyclical, which means that the stocks stay constant as the market rises and falls. While consumers will always need to replenish their food pantries, they now have many different options of stores to choose from. They can stop at convenient stores, traditional grocery stores, a specialty store such as Trader Joes, or a national store such as Wal-Mart. This is great from the stand point of the consumer, but makes for a highly competitive environment for grocery owners that are trying to make

The other 90% goes toward packaging, transporting, and marketing of the food” (Norberg-Hodge).

Next take a look at the W in SWOT. An example of a weakness is that Tesco uses vast amounts of fossil fuel in its transport network and supermarket heating systems. This is expensive, and might alienate green consumers. With oil prices rising and, green taxes looming, Tesco might see an opportunity to invest in energy economy. This might lead to cost savings and better public relations.

He points out that food companies won’t change as long as one of them stays in the same vicious cycle they have been in. Saying that as long as one remains the same non-caring entity that they started as, the others will never change the way they market food.

The City Challenge Partnership in Hulme was a fairly successful scheme. The new housing and services made Hulme a much more attractive place to live, which led to a population increase of 3.3% in the 10 years from the start of the scheme; this was 16.5 times more than Manchester as a whole. As well as this, Hulme and Mosside received approximately £400 million of private and public investment between 1997 and 2002 which meant that businesses moved into the area, jobs could then be created so employment fell substantially. This was almost a complete turnaround as it was the opposite to the spiral of decline that Hulme was in before the scheme. However, Hulme was still a poor area as

Hardly anything defines modern life better than the computer. Whether we like it or not, computers have infiltrated every aspect of our society. Today computers do much more than simply compute. For instance: supermarket scanners calculate our bill while keeping store inventory, computerized telephone switching centers play traffic cop to millions of calls and keep lines of communication untangled, and ATMâ€™s let us conduct banking transactions from virtually anywhere in the world. But where did all this technology come from and where is it heading? To fully understand and appreciate the impact computers have on our lives and promises they hold for the

development. Furthermore, the company has ensured the employee benefit in a good way. They built a field that includes supermarket, restaurants, activity center and gyms, etc. Employees can access all of those facilities only with their work card, which is super convenient, especially for those who live in such a fast-paced country like China. No doubt that the system like this motivates people to do what employers want while meeting their needs.
In a conclusion, I think the core of a successful reward system is to centralize the decision and decentralize the authority. Employees’ creativity and motivation are the core part of most business. If we don’t trust in our employees or always blame on them when things done wrong, the level of management will never be improved. Therefore, to design an effective rewarding system, employers should always keep the employee-oriented and prevent the bureaucracy. Generally speaking, a good reward system is to make right things happen and make people do right things in appropriate time.

This also means that there will be more competition for Asda as other stores may provide cheaper products. Asda is affected by inflation rate when prices shoot up but the wages don’t increase so customers have less money to spend.
The public transport has an effect on Asda because is there is less transport, there will be less customers coming to Asda and they wouldn’t make any money. Asda will have to keep customers coming into their supermarket because it will be highly likely that they would go to stores that are cheaper.
