1. After more haggling it becomes obvious that the vendor is not going to budge. Because you really like the sweater, you decide to pay the cost of $15.50. You settle on a retail of $33.00. After the item has been on your floor for some time it becomes apparent that your customers do not share your sense of taste on this particular item.

Do you need to change your IMU plan? If so, what must your new IMU plan be?
