I really wish there would be more questions here than over at the auto-*** guy... but that's reddit for you! What kind of margins do chains like these have on goods they sale ? Returns and shoplifting would seem to be very high. What kind of order/logistics systems do they use ?

Margins is an interesting question but also, unfortunately, too complex for me to answer accurately. Because a significant amount of the merchandise that FDS sells ends up discounted or off retail, your original, MSRP markups can be HUGE - well over 100% in some instances. They are highest on the most popular designers and the home goods as well (never, EVER, buy a home good on sale!). FDS uses FedFlo, which is internally designed and runs off of AS/400 mainframes, as does the rest of the company. Their IT is so far behind it's amusing. If you can get more detailed, I am happy to answer specifics.
