It adds up.
Yeah, they still get a sizable profit, but please, if you're going to complain about margins go ***** about something like Hermes/LV bags. Stuff made out of leather costs $50,000+.
I have a business degree. I'm well aware of the costs you mentioned. At $250 a stick the margins are ridiculous is my point. Those expenses were still there when sticks cost $20 and were likely higher since they were made in Canada and not China.
This is a hockey board and the topic is about sticks. Margins of other products have no place here.
