Also 'this store's business is good' should be accepted.

I've noticed the translators really don't like possessives.

The translation is good, but far from literal. A more literal translation should also be acceptable such as: " The business of this shop is very good."

The same, or 这店做的生意真好 or 这店做着好生意, I think.

The shop's business is doing very well.

In English, "doing good business" is a phrased awkwardly. I'd like to propose a simpler translation: "This shop is doing very well"

I'm sorry, but writing 'is a phrased awkwardly' doesn't give me as a native speaker confidence in your opinion. There is nothing wrong with 'doing good business'. I agree that your suggestion is simpler, but they probably want to explicitly include the word business in there, rather than making it explicit.

I think that translating it by - this shop is running good business - would sound more English.

Are you a native speaker? It definitely doesn't sound natural to me
