Re: why does tangiers from the retailers cost so much more
maybe if you knew how a business was actually run and the costs involved in running a business you would understand what a mark up is.
the firm that makes the product usually wholesales it out to vendors to sell their product. their sole concern is making the product. if they are spending time selling the product to consumers it lowers their efficiency and productivity. thats why tangiers wholesales their product out to vendors who branch out to consumers to sell their product.
the vendors calculate their costs and the consumer demand to MAXIMIZE their profit in most cases. they are going to sell a certain quantity at a certain price that will yield them the highest gains. not too many people are going to get into a business for fun to make a few bucks.
go to school and learn something.
