Gulf Coast Fashions sells both designer and moderately priced women’s wear in Tampa. Profits have been volatile. Top management is trying to decide which product line to drop. Accountants have reported the following data:

The store has 8,000 square feet of floor space. If moderately priced goods are sold exclusively, 400 items can be displayed. If designer goods are sold exclusively, only 300 items can be displayed.
Moreover, the rate of sale (turnover) of the designer items will be two-thirds the rate of moderately priced goods.

2. What other considerations might affect your decision in number1?
