Transcript of Location by Caitlin Jones-Bennett

Location factors influencing the location of businesses. the following factors can influence the location of businesses:
*nearness to markets for selling products and services
*proximity to good infrastructure such as roads and railways to enable customers to come in, and/or allow easy transport of products out
*costs of land, premises, etc. on which to build shops and/or factories
*car parking facilities for workers and/or customers
*nearness to raw materials
*availability of labour Sensible places *nearness to markets - where many customers live and/or go shopping

*they provide easy access for customers
