Analysing Sales Data and Finding Patterns / Information

Hi all,

I stumbled across this page while trawling the net for ideas on how to work out my assignment. I was wondering whether anyone could perhaps give me a few pointers.

So we were given two months of data (Jun 2009, Jun 2010) of retailer sales, grouped by week. So each row has the week, the store, the store's region, the product sold and the money it made.

Have you got any suggestions as to what techniques I could use to analyse the data? I already built a few bar charts and pie charts to visualise the % sales by flavour etc, but I have no idea how to properly look into the data.

Could anyone suggest a few avenues from where I could start off? Cheers :)
