Problems regarding the managing and developing of Hogsmeadow Garden Centre
Question #3:
Summarize the problems faced by Don Dursley in managing and developing his centre.
There are a plethora of setbacks being faced by Don Dursley in the development of his garden centre. Perhaps the most evident one is the problem of inventory management. Dursley insists that the weather is impossible to predict and plays a major role in determining inventory. The problem if determining adequate staffing is another obvious problem of Dursley. Even though there are 12 staff members working at the restaurant at lunch time, there are still long lines to buy food. Outside of the restaurant, Dursley needs the right mix of workers to respond to fluctuations in demand. The seating at Honeydukes is not ample to serve the amount of customers dining at the restaurant. The costs incurred in running the garden centre have escalated and have exceeded the revenue generated from its operations. Based on the assumption that public transportation is not allowed on the premises, Hogsmeadow is losing customers who do not have private means of transportation.
