Interesting, good for them that they can make some decent money for stocking inventory.

Golf business was sad back in the day, mind you this was like 1997 but example


Driver
Cost 275, retail $299
Balls doz cost $22, Retail $21 ( yes a loss leader )
Putter cost $99 retail $109

However

Shoes
Cost $50 Retail $119
Shirt
Cost $27 retail $55
