single-store distribution market.  Two customers are used to exemplify the insights available                                                                                                                                                                                    

with the ABC approach.  Data pertaining to these two customers in August 2012 are as

Make four recommendations that you think Figure Four should consider                                                                                                                                                                             

in light of this new customer-profitability information.
