On December 11th, entrepreneurship students from Saint Mary's University summarized the incomes and expenditures of their semester projects.
These students, broken into smaller groups, had chosen five new products to sell at the Cardinal Corner, a small not-for-profit retail shop located in the basement of the university's Toner Student Center. The students chose to sell a vintage-style Saint Mary's College shirt, stress footballs, stocking hats, tote bags and cancer awareness shirts.
The Cardinal Corner brought in over $2,300 in revenue and had a profit margin over 40 percent, breaking records by over $1,000 and 800 basis points of margin.
Funds from this semester will be donated to the First-Generation Initiative at Saint Mary's.
