Sounds pretty close to robbery to me.<<

Well 15 employees for a pet store is quite a few, more than most LFS...thats
a lot of overhead. Plus leasing store space in California is completly
outrageous...then there is the cost of electricity...we all know what the
electric rates are like in California and the rates for businesses are
double what they are for consumers, business phone lines are expensive,
business insurance in California is the highest in the nation....I'd say
your LFS is lucky to still be in business! Robbery? I doubt it.
