Well as the thread title states... I work for a huge big box store... I run the show, or I'm glued to the bull you decide. I work in a store that is growing well beyond its means.... Ask me anything....

What's the latest preference in tile?

What kind of mark-up can I expect on the most popular kitchen and bath tile?

What's the real overhead if I want to "do-it-myself"?

Thanks in advance.

You don't show good sales numbers you are as good as canned...good luck in your new position. It can be a tough ride with LOTS of responsibility to satisfy shareholder's needs

What is your favorite box size?

Are these cardboard boxes?

If so, you could earn yourself a tidy commission by approaching Amazon and persuading them to buy a range of small boxes.

I'm not their only customer who gets fed up with receiving a teaspoon in a box that could house an elephant

Complicated question merely in the aspect where i currently work tile is a seperate department. On average anywhere from 0-20% mark up. A lot of the time certai products bring the company little to no profit if yiu have their installers do the work . The benefit at tbat point beckmes brand loyalty. If the home owner performs the project themselves the benefit for the company is in the accessories. Tools, mortar, hardy board, tile. It balances out in the end. Like i said not what i do specifically but an answer none the less. One tile vs another could mean substantial gain for the company anything with a special price that sounda like a great deal for the customer usually is a great deal for the retailer.

Do you wake up in the middle of the night, soaked in sweat, unable to breathe, eyes wide and filled with terror....

As a single word fills your mind...

SHRINK.

Amazon runs a near neutral margin . They succeed in volume where my company succeeds in oportunity.
