    Strengths are that they sell better quality products than most other food stores. Weakness being they are also seen as more expensive than others and don't have the spread(as many) of stores around the country as say Asda/Wallmart and Tesco and perhaps Morrisons.

    The opposition and threats will be competing lower priced stores and shops. Another threat would be a strong and militant Union of workers perhaps who demand higher wages.

    Good luck.

    Strengths: Percieved as good quality, recent investment in store upgrades, diversification into clothes/electrical/high-tech consumables etc, 'local' stores in garages etc. Nectar card

    Weaknesses: Priced higher than some of the competition, Jamie Oliver's endorsement (seriously - school dinner thing has back fired)

    Opportunities: difficult - fiere competition. Consumers are fickle and trends continuously change (vegetarian, low fat/salt/sugar, organic, good treatment of animals, health scares etc.) so there's always the opportunity to act on the next trend. Requires good strategic marketing.

    Threats: Mighty Tesco, Asda/Wallmart's buying power
