Location of recent shops The placement of recent shops could also be thought-about based mostly on the findings above, thus bringing the shops in shut proximity to the ethnic minority. Commercial and Software types Creating consciousness within the goal space would enhance the possibilities of getting candidates. As A-B-Zee is new to the labour market, putting commercial on the radio and tv and offering data to the general public on what
