Question

J. P. Max is a department store carrying a large and varied stock of merchandise. Management is considering leasing part of its floor space for $ 72 per square foot per year to an outside jewelry company that would sell merchandise. Two areas currently in use are being considered: home appliances (1,000 square feet) and televisions (1,200 square feet). These departments had annual profits of $ 64,000 for appliances and $ 82,000 for televisions after allocated fixed occupancy costs of $ 7 per square foot were deducted. Allocated fixed occupancy costs include property taxes, mortgage interest, insurance, and exterior maintenance for the department store.

Required:
Considering all the relevant factors, which department should be leased and why?
