Devil in the detail

    I was looking at some Bike industries just trying to figure out what was going on with the retail margins that are being used. And this is what I came up with (I've mangled the numbers a little– but the proportions are right):

    Where Total FirmA FirmB FirmC FirmD FirmE
    Bike stores 340 -90 -42 -52 -90 -90
    Dept. stores 540 190 105 125 120 0
    Sports stores 660 220 135 135 165 0

    So what does it all mean? Well, not a lot if you don't know the retail margin or the amount of extra support being given. But I'd suspect that one firm has an explicit strategy in this area.

    If you webmention this page, please let me know the URL of your page.

    BTW: Your webmention won't show up until I next "build" my site.
