Cost Volume Profit Anaysis

The DC Shoe Company operates a chain of shoe stores that sell 10 different styles of inexpensive men’s shoes with identical unit costs and selling prices. A unit is defined as a pair of shoes. Each store has a store manager who is paid a fixed salary. Individual salespeople receive a fixed salary and a sales commission. DC is considering opening another store that is expected to have the revenue and cost relationships shown here:

Unit Variable Data (per pair of shoes) Annual Fixed Cost
Selling Price $ 35.00 Rent $ 77,000
Salaries $ 262,000
Cost of Shoes $ 23.20 Advertising $ 86,000
Sales Commission $ 1.80 Other fixed costs $ 36,000
Variable Cost Per Unit $ 25.00 Total fixed costs $ 461,000
