S 25-3 Gila Fashions should not drop any of the departments. The Men’s and Women’s Departments are earning income. While the Accessories Department appears to be losing money, even this department has a positive contribution margin. The Accessories Department is contributing $10,000 ($100,000 sales revenue $90,000 variable costs) toward covering fixed costs. These fixed costs include only building depreciation and utilities, and Gila Fashions intends to remain in the same building whether or not it drops any of the departments. Consequently, these fixed costs will remain the same whether or not Gila Fashions eliminates the Accessories Department. These fixed costs are therefore irrelevant in the decision whether to eliminate the Accessories Department. In sum, Gila Fashions should keep the Accessories Department because it contributes $10,000 per quarter toward covering the fixed costs. Furthermore, the Accessories Department might bring in customers who buy products in other departments. If so, eliminating the Accessories Department could reduce other departments’ profits.
