Scenario:Â 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.
