20. Spoiled Cheese? Recall Frankie’s Homemade Cheese Shop from Chapter 7 cases. Assume now that Frankie has finished construction of the new cheese superstore along Route 5 and capitalized $1.9 million related to the project as of the store’s opening on 1/1/20X1. As of 12/31/X1, the shop’s current carrying value is $1.805 million (assuming a 20-year life for the store and straight-line depreciation). As of 12/31/X1, Frankie’s notices that a few negative factors are at play and asks you whether it is required to test the superstore for impairment: 1. A key stock market index (the Dow) has slid 1,500 points, or 6% since the store was opened. 2. Monthly sales have slid by 10% since the store was opened, partially due to a construction project on Route 5 that has reduced traffic flow to the area. 3. As a result of the slide in monthly sales, the store operated at a deficit in October, November, and December of 20X1
