Statistical Analysis of the net sales of Pelican Store
The following will examine the tables that were formulated based on the data given and state conclusions on what it represents. This data was collected from a sample of 100 customers that used a credit card at Pelican Stores one day during a discount-coupon promotion.
All of the tables are categorized in different groups representing the net sales of the Pelican Store. They show the mean, median, mode, standard deviation, variance, skewness, kurtosis, range and the 25th, 50th and 75th percentile. All of these statistical outputs each embody a particular meaning.

The first table that was constructed represented the frequencies of the net sales of the pelican store data and is simply a basic overview of sorts of the data. The mean here indicates that on average Pelican Stores customers spent over $77.
The standard deviation shows how close the rest of the individual data is from the averages and the closer they are, the more accurate the average is. The data has a standard deviation of $55.66 from the average spending which is reasonably low and it is safe to assume that the data is fairly accurate.
The percentiles show that 25% of customers spent $39.60, 50% spent $59.70 and 75% spent $101.90

The second table divides the net sales into gender groups. It shows that 93% of customers were female and the rest were male which is reasonable as this is a woman’s apparel store.
The females on average spent $79.18 whereas the males spent an average of $56.48
Female customers have a larger deviation than males of $56.89 from the average, as the males have a deviation of $30.40, which means the data on their average should be more accurate than the females.
FEMALE: 25% of female customers spent $39.80, 50% spent $62.40 and 75% spent $102.45
MALE: 25% of male customers spent $39.50, 50% spent 47.20 and 75%…...

Happiness Store

...Wegley ENG 102 18 January 2014 The Happiness Store: A Place to be Happy in Less Mundane Ways Gary Larson has brought laughter to many people by his popular long-running comic called The Far Side. In one of these cartoon series, the character names Crawley was told by his friends: “You cannot buy happiness”. However, “Mr. Crawley surmised that they just didn’t know where the store was” (Figure 1). Humorously, Mr. Crawley’s conclusion about the reason why his friends could never buy happiness may be comical and eccentric, but it conveys Larson’s message about a common and reflective argument in our life as he identifies people’s different aspects of happiness and ways to accomplish it. Is simply painted in black and white with captions at the bottom, the single rectangular panel makes it easier for the readers to recognize Larson’s typical painting style and his message throughout the comic. Looking at the panel, what impresses viewers at the first glance is the “Happiness” store with a remarkable, large signboard on the corner of a crowded street. On the pane of glass, there are several flyers for advertisement such as “Complete your life”. Besides, that store selling happiness is the place which Mr. Crawley’s friends – the characters in the comic did not know. Thus, they were unable to purchase happiness. The hilarious point is that “happiness” is an abstract, ungraspable definition; how come there is a store selling it? Nevertheless, according to Henri......

...opportunities for the Corporation. Why Convenient Stores alongside Fuelling Facilities ? With the emergence of organised retailing in the country and a growing demand from consumers for a superior shopping experience, Convenience Retailing has emerged as a key business area for petroleum companies given their wide retail presence, existing customer base and strategically located sites.

Candy Store

...Candy Store In this chart, there is an assumption that each of the 24 franchise stores will generate $570,000 in revenue each year. This projection is within 8% of Candy Andy’s revenue in 2013, however it is unreasonable to assume that this is accurate. The original Candy Andy store is located in a town with a summer population of 54,000 and a winter total of 9000. Each of the new franchises will be located in areas with varying populations, and the size will heavily influence the amount of demand generated for Candy Andy’s products. Therefore, this projection is not directly repeatable throughout each of the 24 franchises. This projection also assumes that sales will be consistent throughout three years. This is not a reasonable assumption, especially since it is highly unlikely that all 24 stores will be ready and open within the first year. This chart assumes that TURG has the necessary capital to build 24 franchise stores before day 1 of the first year following the deal. This is extremely unlikely, as building and implementing the new franchise stores will take a substantial amount of time and capital. When making her decision, Edith must consider how she would adjust her current marketing efforts if she declines the franchise offer. Her current marketing strategy involving AdMad costs $4500 per month. Her return on marketing investment is extremely low, since she has not noticed a significant change in Candy Andy’s sales. If Edith keeps her business, she......

...Charming Charlie In Barboursville W.V Huntington Mall ,Charming Charlie's is a store that came on the scene particularly faster than most independent jewelry stores. The store provides jewelry not seen around in the area and quit an abundance of it. The one things most people like about Charming Charlie, is the amount of jewelry and every color available to your liking. Also something that the store offers are shoes and purses not like most shoes and purses throughout the mall. When you walk into the store they have each piece of jewelry color coordinated and sectioned off in areas throughout the store. The store itself is one of the larger stores in the mall, it's very difficult not to notice when walking by, the colors are very vibrant with reds, yellows, blues and pinks all year around regardless of season. The music they play in the store is very contemporary but played in a lower sound than most stores not being too distracting. They display signs on the windows when they are having a sale of any type. The salespeople that work in the store wear their own style of clothing but jewelry from head to toe. One of the things I believe that would help Charming Charlie's is not so much the appearance of the store but the sale consultants of the establishment. One thing I notice was it took a few minutes, if not ten minutes to respond to me as I was looking through the store . When the sales consultant finally notices me they were placing items on the shelf and ask if I......
