Step 1

Publix points out three new locations to open its new grocery store. The three places they decided is St. Augustine, the Airport area, and the Westside. They will measure the places on the basis of two points one is decision cost (weight of 70 %) and another one is the customer base (weight is 30%). Each item will be measured on a scale of 10.

Given:

• Augustine scored 4 for cost, and for the customer base, it is10.
• The Airport area scored 6 for cost, and for the customer base, it is 5.
• The Westside scored 8 for cost, and for the customer base, it is 2.
