Scenario:Jude’sJewellery website and auction

Jude’sJewellery is an international retailer of exclusive unique pieces of jewellery and watches. Established in 1890, they sell to theworld’srichest clients. All their jewellery is available from one store in London, UK.

Throughout its history,Jude’sJewellery has prided itself on its highly trained staff and their expertise in all aspects of jewellery retailing.

However, sales have been steadily declining as ever fewer customers are willing to travel to the London, UK store to buy their jewellery. Furthermore, the store is starting to amass quite a large stock of unsold items. At a recent board meeting, the idea was raised for the company to open its first E-commerce website and auction site.
