Browns of York digital presence

  • Accessibility – navigation bar stays at the tops of the page and contains links to all products and services.
  • Blog – surprised Brown’s department store was not an online eCommerce shop. I feel like it could have benefited from allowing customers to buy online. If you click on what a product it takes you to page with little content and the call of action is simply ‘visit Browns’.
