This is Quora question I was asked.
Not including produce, on average Target’s margins in my experience are 25–30%.
I use margins and not markup because in the industry, margins is what is used and they are computed off of suggested retail price (SRP or MSRP). So, for example, using a $9.99 SRP, wholesale cost to Target would be around $7.20, giving them a margin of 27.9%.
If you look at a markup, then it would be 38% in the above example.
I post what I see and do in consumer products. But I am just one person with my own perspective. I want your opinion and observations from your point of view. Please comment below so I and others can learn. Thank you!
