This website assignment was done with the purpose of investigating how efficient the team website of the National Basketball Association’s Boston Celtics is for customers. is a major virtual shopping center as it is the home for exclusively licensed gear from last season’s NBA champions, and should be a great source of revenue for the defending champions. Need Recognition A: On the first “store” page of, there are banners covering most of the page. These banners flip from one image to another, displaying gifts for her in a “find the perfect gift for your girl” section along with holiday gift packs with a major focus on last season’s NBA championship.

The best overview for the entire shopping center would be the “View All” page. It lists all of the products featured on the site with no real order.
