At a lower price, Lululemon products would have targeted the market that wants quality apparel at an affordable price. If executed properly, this market could potentially be equally as profitable because there are many people that cannot afford or do not want to spend $98 on pants. Even for those loyalists that may own one or two Lululemon products, a lower price would mean that they could now buy several Lululemon products. The real difference is in the relationship between profit margin and quantity. As of now, Lululemon successfully sells a lower quantity but at a higher profit margin.
if you think about it, there are around 5,332 operating Wal-Marts in America. In my own opinion, I’d think that’s creating more jobs rather than losing jobs.

As The largest retailer in the nation, it pays a very positive role, giving jobs and producing goods, that americans want to and can buy.
It is because Nike’s target customers focus on the product’s quality. They think the higher the price, the better quality. However, according to China Daily(2010) “Nike Inc, the best-selling global sports brand, which is expecting record sales growth in China this year, is launching a range of low-priced products across the country rather than just focusing on high-end buyers.” Nike's low-priced products would be sports shoes retailing at 300 Yuan a pair, significantly lower than its normal prices in China. According to UBS Securities, sports shoes priced between 170 and 250 Yuan are best sellers in China's second- and third-tier cities. This indicates that Nike will attract more customers in different social class.
The trial membership would only last for a few months and ideally cost less than 45 dollars order to lure wary customers away from buying a full membership to Sam’s Club or BJs. Having this short-term membership would give Costco a competitive advantage because the other stores do not offer trials, and their membership fees are higher than Costco’s trial membership would cost. The store that customers initially chose is crucial because they will shop there for a whole year and are likely to feel committed to that store and renew their membership at the end of the year. “91% of subscribers renewed their memberships last year”, indicating that most of their current customers are satisfied, which would likely hold true for new customers as well (Kalogeropoulos). Having an affordable trial membership card as an option would enable Costco to attract customers who are on the fence about joining, and set them apart from their competitors.
The marble business can be extremely lucrative, as stated by Pennsylvania dealer Elliot Pincus who has been around the world 2 times because of marbles. He stated that some were willing to pay up to $40,000 for the rare marbles. For a small unpopular toy, marbles do seem to have a lot to
Nike has managed to shift their Manufacturing unit into Asian country’s were the labor is cheap to be exact wages of USD1 an hour were so little as one-tenth of those given in the US. No wonder that a pair of shoes which were sold for $150 in 1991 is made by indoasian women who were 58 cents a day but the situation has started to change and due to that reason the company has managed to minimize cost of production and not only double triple the the revenue as comparing to the year 1996. Finally we come up with promotion and advertising campaigns which became a grand success not only because they introduced sportspersons , they also introduced innovative ideas and wise strategies and the image of the Product, due to this process we can say that Nike targeted a huge no of audience and created a Prestigious brand which will be easily available for average people . they also came up with great tag lines such as ‘there is no finish life’ , and in the 1980 they changed it into “ JUST DO IT “ these quotes of tag lines are considerd very simple but very attracting and extremely encouraging for the customers . Due to this reason Nike is now a world wide brand used by each and every people in different parts of the
Moreover, Nike’s air cushion technology innovation always maintained a leading and monopoly (Nike, 2015). Thus, this resource is not only valuable but also rare. Nike’s celebrity endorsements might be costly to imitate for new comers, but for exist competitors it is not difficult to imitate. For example, Adidas will pay over $70 million a year to extend its sponsorship deal with the German soccer association (Alawsat, 2016). Thus, Nike need to consider how to sustain its competitive
Costco has the opportunity to make developments on its private brand, Signature Kirkland brand. Adding more products and the commitment to quality is precious to the business. The Costco warehouse carries over 4000 SKU items which are minimal to grocery stores carrying over 30,000 (Caplinger, D. 2016). Costco has a limited selection of products that contributes to keep the cost low, and aiding in extensive savings onto the customers. Implementing a merger or expanding in new developing locations internationally, such as Mexico, that has a stable political structure and tax exemptions, will increase revenue.
Competition The leader in automobile sales for quite a long time has been Toyota. It achieved the golden milestone of the largest selling car in history in 1974 and has remained on the top of the mountain since then (holding 12% global market share in 2013). In contrast Honda holds a comparatively paltry 4% market share and their earnings are less than half of Toyota. That being said, both are major manufacturers in the world automobile market. The other giants in the game, the Volkswagen Group (11%), PSA (3%), Nissan (8%) and Hyundai (9%) as well as General Motors (11%) and Ford (8%) in the U.S. all contribute significant market shares to the world total, the reasons these players always come out on top are several.
• By building economies of scale so that it can lower the fixed cost per unit. • Building capacities and spending money on research and development. New entrants are less likely to enter a dynamic industry where the established players such as Twitter, Inc. keep defining the standards regularly. It significantly reduces the window of extraordinary profits for the new firms thus discourage new players in the industry. Bargaining Power of
