TIL – Annual sales of typical vs. college bookstores are seriously tipped

The typical U.S. bookstore brings in average sales of $1M per year, while the typical college bookstore brings in $4.9M! That’s a huge disparity. Unlike your run-of-the-mill bookstore, college bookstores’ customers are (in most cases) required to shop there, which guarantees a customer base and allows for rampant price gouging.
