The chief buyer’s role in such an operations is critical, and Ms. McConnel is currently agonizing over the loss of market share in housewares that her store has suffered because of competition from specialty retailers that carry imported cooking and dining articles. To meet this competitive challenge, Ms. McConnel has reorganized her housewares department to create a “store within a store” that has the same ambiance as her competitors, and she is planning to designate September as “International Dining Month.” The promotion will feature a sale on five special articles, including a copper omelette pan from France. The imported sale items must be ordered six months in advance, and they will not become part of the store’s regular product line. Any items left at the end of September will be sold to a discount chain at a reduced price. In addition, store policy requires that if the store runs out of a special sale item, a more expensive item from the regular line of merchandise will be substituted at the sale price. To help her decide how many of the five promotional item to order, Ms. McConnel has made some early pricing decisions, has gathered cost data, and is pressing her staff for sales forecast information. It has been decided that the French omelette pan will sell for $35, and cost data are given below for this pan and the regular pan that will substitute in the event of shortage.
