    The computer listing wouldn't have "profit" per item. Profits are constantly in flux based on sales and operating costs. Plus, how would a product database integrate that information per item?

    The product listing would list the margin/markup, as the cost would like be in the inventory system.

    The 25% IS likely the store markup. Margins on toys at the retail level is in that 20-30% range.

    The only way you'd k ow the stores profits would be by looking at its balance sheets, and that wouldn't be depicted as a percentage on a product.

    Got some bad news amigos...looks like I'll be hopping off the TRU train in the near-ish future. It was always supposed to be a temporary job (college student), but it's a real shame that it has to end the way it's ending, there's just some real bad ju ju going on with the whole bankruptcy thing that I can't really go into.

    I'll still do my best to provide pertinent info while I can, just be aware, the writing is on the wall.

    So, it's worse news than what we're hearing? We can at least infer that, right?

    Let's just say that there are things going on that make me think that that's certainly a possibility...

    This have to do with store closures? I saw on the news that TRU might close some of their locations in light of the bankruptcy.

    So you believe that you can raise prices indefinitely without a corresponding rise in wages? Pray tell, how _does_ that work? Do you think your wage comes from a money tree out back and not the spending of other wage earners?

    Anyway, you had to know store closings were coming. They always say they're not closing stores in the beginning to fool people into thinking everything is fine. If everything was fine, they would not be seeking bankruptcy protection. Not everybody that files for bankruptcy is like a certain real estate personality and gets away with it over and over and over. It usually is serious and you're lucky to make it through once.

    Ehhh you got a fake name and we have no idea what state your in, your good bro. If TRU messages/harassess you, give em the middle finger (doubt they will) and say they got bigger things to worry about right now ;D thanks for the heads up

    Edit... just realized this was originally posted weeks ago. Lmao

    Sorry to hear about the job. I know you'll find something better.
