Bed & Bath, a retailing company, has two departments—Hardware

and Linens. The company's most recent monthly contribution format income statement follows:
 
   Department 
Total Hardware Linens
Sales $4,120,000  $3,110,000  $1,010,000 
Variable expenses  1,264,000   863,000   401,000 
Contribution margin  2,856,000   2,247,000   609,000 
Fixed expenses  2,170,000   1,350,000   820,000 
Net operating income (loss) $686,000  $897,000  $(211,000)
 
A study indicates that $373,000 of the fixed expenses being charged to Linens are sunk costs or allocated costs that will continue even if the Linens Department is dropped. In addition, the elimination of the Linens Department will result in a 11% decrease in the sales of the Hardware Department.
