Scenario: Mary Willis is the advertising manager for Bargain Shoe Store. She is currently working on a major promotional campaign. Her ideas include the installation of a new lighting system and increased display space that will add $24,000 in fixed costs to the $270,000 in fixed costs currently spent. In addition, Mary is proposing a 5% price decrease ($40 to $38) will produce a 20% increase in sales volume (20,000 to 24,000). Variable costs will remain at $24 per pair of shoes. Management is impressed with Mary's ideas but concerned about the effects these changes will have on the break-even point and the margin of safety.

Complete the following: 

  • Compute the current break-even point in units, and compare it to the break-even point in units if Mary's ideas are used.
  • Compute the margin of safety ratio for current operations and after Mary's changes are introduced (Round to nearest full percent).
  • Prepare a CVP (Cost-Volume-Profit) income statement for current operations and after Mary's changes are introduced.

Prepare a maximum 700-word informal memo to management addressing Mary's suggested changes. 

  • Explain whether Mary's changes should be adopted. Why or why not? Analyze the above information (three bullet points above) and use this information to support your suggestion.
