Ship’s Store Profits, Navy
to  work  with.  Check  the  items  in  your  stores with   the   stock   in   your   bulk   storeroom   to ensure  that  everything  you  have  on  board  is available  to  the  crew.  After  you  are  satisfied in   that   area,   you   can   check   for   dead   stock and  excess  stock.  Remember,  both  dead  stock and excess stock may be disposed of by transfer, markdown,  or  return  to  the  vendor.  On  the other  hand,  sales  may  have  decreased  in  your ship’s  store  for  some  other  reason.  Perhaps you  should  consider  new  types  of  merchandise, better  displays,  or  even  conducting  special  sales to  move  the  stock  out. Markups The  markup  over  cost  or  transfer  price  of items to be sold in the retail store(s) and service activities  is  the  responsibility  of  the  ship’s  store officer.  However,  in  the  final  determination  of your  retail  prices,  you,  as  the  senior  Ship’s Serviceman,   must   consider   any   transportation service charges. For determining retail prices when transportation  service  charges  are  applicable,  con- sult the guidelines set forth in your NAVRESSO P-81. You  must  also  determine  if  and  how  your retail  prices  should  be  rounded  off.  Give  proper consideration  to  the  convenience  and  efficiency with which sales can be made in long lines, such as the ice cream and fountain lines. Rounded-off prices  could  really  increase  efficiency  in  these cases. The   ship’s   store   officer   will   prescribe   the percentage  of  markup  to  be  applied  to  special order  items.  The  pricing  policy  for  foreign merchandise is officially prescribed in your NAV- SUP  P-487.  Consult  the  NAVSUP  P-487  for guidance. Operation Expenses Operation  expenses  include  the  costs  of  any items  you  need  to  operate  your  ship’s  store activities. The term cost of operation has probably been  familiar  to  you  from  your  first  day  in  any ship’s  service  activity.  In  fact,  you  probably remember   hearing   your   supervisor   constantly referring to the cost of operation during training lectures. (Your supervisor was trying to coach you to  keep  the  costs  down.) Cost of operation items are consumed directly in  the  performance  of  a  service  to  patrons  and include   all   items   used   by   service   activities, such  as  the  laundry,  barbershop,  and  tailor shop.  Cost  of  operation  items  also  include repair  parts  used  for  vending  machines  and ice   cream   machines.   The   term   cost   items includes  those  items  of  ship’s  store  stock  that are  carried  for  ultimate  expenditure  as  cost of   operation   materials   for   modernization   and improvements  of  ship’s  stores.  Cost  items  also include  any  cost  of  sales  items  that  require further   processing   or   manufacturing   before sale.  Examples  of  cost  of  sales  items  would include  fountain  ingredients,  soft  drink  syrup, carbon  dioxide  gas  (CO2),  straws,  spoons,  and paper  cups.  From  an  analysis  of  your  ship’s store  records,  are  these  costs  reasonable?  Can they  be  cut? Vending  Machines,  Amusement Machines, and Dollar Bill Changers All   vending   machines,   including   machines located  in  authorized  messes,  must  be  operated as  a  service  activity  of  the  ship’s  store.  Money boxes must be secured according to the rules set forth  in  your  NAVSUP  P-487. The  ship’s  store  officer  is  responsible  for  the collection and deposit of any funds received from sales  in  your  vending  machines.  You,  however, must make certain that all cash from sales in your vending   machines   is   collected   and   recorded separately from sales in the retail store and sales in the fountain. You must see that the cash from your vending machines is collected daily and any time  before  you  have  any  repairs  made  to  the  coin mechanisms. When conditions make it impossible for   the   ship’s   store   officer   or   designated collection  agent  to  collect  the  cash  from  the vending  machines,  you,  or  the  vending  machine custodian, may take the following actions for each machine: 1.  Take  the  meter  reading. 2.  If  the  meter  is  not  installed,  compute  the units  sold  using  the  formula  outlined  in  your NAVSUP  P-487. 3.  Remove  the  locked  money  box  from  each vending  machine.  Deliver  the  locked  money  box (with   the   meter   reading   or   a   computation   of 7-27
