ASDA and the Post Office are similar in a way because they both make profit, provides goods and services, both a franchise and they are both large businesses. But they are different as well ASDA sell food, clothing household, insurance which is a private sector business which allows you to do online shopping. On the other hand the Post Office mainly sells services e.g. life, car, pet insurance and the goods they sell is stationary which is only available in store this business is a public sector business.
In conclusion I think that the Post office is a larger and more important business because their income has been more and also they have more branches than ASDA, however ASDA only has less branches. This shows that the Post Office is a larger business and has a higher income.
