Danish Supermarket Comes Up With A Perfect Pricing Strategy Against Sanitizer Hoarders (20 pics)

This guy shared on Twitter one Danish supermarket’s idea for stopping people from hoarding hand sanitizer

“Rotunden” supermarket in Denmark consider themselves to be Denmark’s most beautiful supermarket and describe themselves as an exclusive shopping environment with respect for people’s busy everyday life. Apparently, their values are also humane enough to care not only about selling as much as possible but also to getting the product to as many people in need as possible.

 

Apparently, the store is now selling one bottle of sanitizer for 40 DKK ($4.09) while two bottles cost 1,000 DKK ($95)

Same as a lot of supermarkets nowadays, they recently experienced people trying to hoard certain products and felt they couldn’t just leave it like that and ought to do something. Therefore, they came up with quite an unconventional pricing idea for the hand sanitizer they are selling after they noticed some people are buying way too much of it.

 

The store itself took it to Facebook to explain their motivation behind this pricing

“Dear customers,

We have a great responsibility to keep the business running, and we can only do that with everyone’s help and understanding. I can help in the following way:

We ask all customers to respect the distance between each other and our co-workers;

Sprinkle (likely sanitize or wash) hands off at the entrance and use gloves;

If you are a family, please allow only one person to purchase the purchases if possible;

There may be times when we limit how many customers we accept in the store at one time. We will keep you informed about any operating changes on Facebook. Take care and thank you for your understanding,” they state in the letter.

 

Most people loved the idea but some were convinced there were better ways to stops hoarding

Here's what's sad about the reality of Americans, and I'm American
If a store was to post a thing like
1 bottle of hand sanitizer is $1.99 and second would be $29.99 or more,
They'd still buy it. Americans are greedy and freak out of things.
For example,
I went to the store the other day and asked a greeter if I could use a single wipe to wipe down my cart/buggy (she had a bottle of wipes)
She said they are not for sale, I said "ma'am, I don't want to buy them, I simply would like a single wipe" she went off one like a wolverine and held the bottle to her chest and said louder "they aren't for sale"
I told her "ma'am, I take it you don't like to help the human race, have a good day"
A lady who was behind me gave me a wipe and said here you go, she then gave the lady who refused to give me a wipe the eyes of death. If we can't help each other out in times of need, then we as the human race are [email protected]#ked in more ways than one.
Please be safe out there everyone.

Reverse bulk pricing was an idea I had a few days ago. I’m glad I’m not the only one. In the US many stores are putting a stop to this by limiting purchases to one item per person/checkout. These aholes are just coming back multiple times or going to multiple stores. It’s so insane. I can’t even get a bag of rice or eggs. Like ever.

What I want to know is where is EVERYBODY getting the money to stock up for months? I certainly can’t afford it and I make way above the median income. No way I’m racking up credit cards for this.
