Question

On November 10, 2009, Lorna Co. began operations by purchasing coffee grinders for resale. Lorna uses the perpetual inventory method. The grinders have a 90-day warranty that requires the company to replace any nonworking grinder. When a grinder is returned, the company discards it and mails a new one from Merchandise Inventory to the customer. The company’s cost per new grinder is $15 and its retail selling price is $85 in both 2009 and 2010. The manufacturer has advised the company to expect warranty costs to equal 8% of dollar sales. The following transactions and events occurred.
