Dear Mrs. Richards.
Thani'l
}.'ou
for
)/our
recent inquiry abouf the range of goods pro<luced by Patel
Pottery. It is my great pleasure to send
,vou
a copy of our latest cataiog.
W'e are a srnall family-run business, and as such, do not produce lar_ee quantities
of any of our items. Each itern that appears in our catalog is limited to a production
run of 10. This means that only ten of each item is ever produced.
On occasion, if a particular itern produces a great demand, then u,e mav recreate
it, but we prefer to keep the individualitl, of our products and steer clear of rnass
production. This is because of our philosophy of craftsmanship. We feel thaf once
our potters are asked to make things in large numbers" the1, risk losing the sense of
craftsmatiship and begin to feel like a mass production conveyc,r- belt. Of course,
this does mean that our prices are sonle\vhat higher than in the average store, but
I am sure
1'ou
u'ill agree that it is u,orth the cost tcl be able to own a more unique
piece of pottery.
If you see anything in our catalog tirat catches your eye, or if y,ou have a ,lesign
of 1'6u, own that you would like rnade, the best v,,ay to place an order is to call me
at 088-799-8000. You can als. check our our u,ebsite ar wlLug4tlplso.lk.

comments:
"
Use of images: How do you think our target clienis ltrili respond to these? Vili they
appeal io the 20-30 age group that we hope to attraci?
"
Proportion of text to images: is the advert too text-heavy, or have we achiered a
good balance of words to
Pictures?
.
Text content: ls it easy for people 10 extract the information they need quickly? ls the
vocabular.y we have chosen appealing to this age group? Will they identify with the

used too mucn slang, and will it seem that ure are in fact aiming at a younger

Ma: u
l)ear Sirs.
I recentir purchased a new car battery at the Dariston branch of Advance Autoparts.
The mechnics installed this battery, for me. anC I rirove home. Once I arrived horne, I read
the receipt r,'hich I had been girien. I nodced that there seemed to be some additional
charges. I was charged for the following:
l. 1 car battery
5. Reconrrection of cables
2. Battery
jnstaliation
6' Disposai of old batter-v
3. Cable corrosion check 7' h{echanic's sen'ice fee
4. Cabie cleaning il. Ta-x
I feel that it is rather excesslirre to charge a separate fee for items 2 and 5.
Connecting the cables is mereh part of the installadon process. I aiso feel that it is inappropriate
to hare charged an additi.onal meciranic's fee-surely I am already pa]ing tl:ie mechanic in
item 2 for the instailation.
Finallll I'would have appreciated knowing in adrrance that I nouid be charged for disp,:sa1 of
the old barteru Had I knonm this, I u,ould have lil<ed to harre taken it for disposal m1'se1f, slnce
the public garbage disposal sire does NOT charge a fee-
Perhaps Advance Autoparts r,r,ouid like to consider giving custolners a hreakdoum of costs
before carning out repairs. I, for one, u,ould probabllr not have used
-vour
sen'rces had I
knor,rm exacth rnat I uould be charged for.
}'ours faithfully

js
a brief analysis of what we
have found. First, as vLu
can see, w have charted the results for the following common
horisehold appliances: refrigerators, freezers' washinS machines' and air conditioni11$ units' As
indicrtec in this chan, refrigerators
remained a stead,v- seller throu$hout the vear' There was a
rise in the f'ounh quaner of the year to an average weekly sale of 5C units' This can be
expiained by typic;rl seasotral needs. With the advent of the Christmas and New Year
'eriod'
many homeowners experience a lack of siora8,e space for all the food thel' have in stock to
sen.e
guests and visiiing relari.es. We would iike to suggest a bigger aCvenising campaign for
the ho)idar season this con'ring year. Freezer sales show a silllilar rise in saies to re?i'gerators'
The third item in the chart is rvashing machines. sales -if washing machines were divided
inio tn,c categories: top-loading and front-loading.
This is where we noticed an interestin$
change. TrarlitiorallS,,, householders have favored larger top-loadin$ macirines' However' it can
be seen on e chart above that the smaller front-loadng Iirachines are gaining in popularily'
u,hile sales of top-loaders are in fact decreasing. We are not exactlY sure what has prompted
this changie, so ve would like to propose a studr to finc1 out more about rtrhat people nr''wadays
uant o,t of a washing machine. Armed with the results of somt ma'}''et ;"esearch' we lvill be
'r;etter
able 10 target customers with our advenising, and we r,r'iii be a.bie tr' put lirt riglit i<rnri

allowed to die' You may feei that this is rather over-exggerated, but l'd like you to consicler this: in a to\a-n cenrer
with empty boarded-up stores, c'inre rates rise. lA/ith no people arcunc, theie empty buildings Lrecome a der for
drug adriicts and dealers. Violent crire ilicreases in empty streets.
