mulch retail price

My family owns a garden center and I do the landscaping and lawn care. I purchased a load of hardwood mulch for a total of 85 yards. I will use over half myself for jobs but what would you charge the average customer that comes to the store? I have $13.33 in each yard.

It is more expensive than typical mulch,,, maybe $25-$30...
I think the stuff is uselss where ever there are shrubs and trees,,, becuz it is too light weight to clean up with a blower...

24 retail. I prefer this mulch because it breaks down faster and feeds the plants on new installs. This helps the landscape beds build OM. The other mulches take way longer to break down. Then later we put down the fancy stuff.
