So how much profit are they making off me, anyway?

This is a four-part question, in which I ask: how much profit does a merchant typically make on the following products and services: A $2.00 slice of plain pizza, a $5.50 cycle on a laundromat clothes washer, a $1.50 box of strawberries and a $0.25 cycle of 8-10 minutes in a laundromat dryer?

I'm assuming that the merchant's costs would be those typical of the New York City area. But information about other cities is welcome as well.
Many thanks in advance.
