A businessman who runs a wholesale clothes business in Jalan Merlimau, lamented the impact on sales."We lost about a million in sales on that day as most of our customers come by during the weekend. source : NST
if you did "a million in sales on that day"
and Lulu were to extrapolate it for the year,
Lets assume he's closed on Sundays [give him the benefit of the doubt-la...]
Lulu's wondering what the factor should be on weekdays. For retail outlets, wild guess 30% of weekend sales.
52 Saturdays x RM1mill + 5weekdays x 52 x300K = (wow) 130mil/annum!
at 10% PBIT (Lulu just came from a company strategy meeting, so pick up acronyms like this) that's RM13mil!
wow! wow! and wow!
This estimation is on the low side of his boast, cos if you think about it, he's a wholesaler, which means that retail outlets buy from him to sell to normal people like you and Lulu. And retail outlets are busy on weekends, meaning they buy from him on weekdays.
either he's making a lot, a lot of money, or it was just a sad, sad MCA boast.
btw, the Bersih march was not a street demo
it was the police roadblocks which caused the massive jam.
