  3. The shop currently employs 4 employees, with employee costs per month amounting to approximately R20 000. This includes 2 store managers and 2 other personnel. We are looking to down scale to 2 employees in total, which will cut monthly costs by an estimate of R10 000. We are considering decreasing this expense, by at least a third.

    I have relocated and therefor can no longer effectively manage the store. The store, however, requires minimal input and has been trading under management of the 'store manager', with whom I communicate on a daily basis.
  8. The average gross profit percentage on sales equal 35%, which fluctuates, but will never go below 30%.
