Decline in the bussiness at Cenral plaza [#permalink]  31 Jul 2017, 11:35
[size=150]TOPIC:Over the past two years, the number of shoppers in Central Plaza has been steadily decreasing while the popularity of skateboarding has increased dramatically. Many Central Plaza store owners believe that the decrease in their business is due to the number of skateboard users in the plaza. There has also been a dramatic increase in the amount of litter and vandalism throughout the plaza. Thus, we recommend that the city prohibit skateboarding in Central Plaza. If skateboarding is prohibited here, we predict that business in Central Plaza will return to its previously high levels.

MY ARGUMENT:
The decline in the business at the Central plaza is due to a decrease of no of visitors is the primary claim of the author. Based on that there might be a number of factors which might be affecting the situation.So the here claim of the author that it is because of increase in skateboarding is slightly biased, And before arriving at any conclusion author needs to consider several factors also and consider those factors maturely.

First of all, Is skateboard users are being hurdled to the pedestrians and visitors in any manner or not?because blaming any one without any inference may become slightly difficult for shop owner as well, because they might lose this people also, who are current visitors of the plaza. They have to determine also that why skateboarding is increasing because of lack of people or its either way.because if the case is reverse then they might end up with losing remaining visitors also.

The second thing they should consider is that are those skateboard user are a customer of that place or not .because blocking them into the area might end up this business also. Authors approach wards litter and garbage and liking it with this skateboarding thing is skeptical because it needs to be proved that that waste and litter is because of this skateboarding.And the answer for this might help them to decide whether they need to implement proper waste management of they have to stop skateboard users. Another thing is this investment in waste management can be used by everyone not only by skateboard users who is not sole responsibility for this.

Last and finally they have to look out for the root of the phenomena, by evaluating all this possible scenario for this case. They have to ask themselves why people are not coming to this Central Plaza? there can be various factors like whether they don't like their service or relevant product or competition. By this, they can do self-analysis and improve by their own.

The prediction of the owner may fail to establish strong ground given that, there are many other factors also which might have been affected their business more than only skateboard users.Moreover, they can use these segment of people and make them their customer rather than prohibit their entry.
