Rite Aid is Weird

June 23rd, 2009 at 09:03 pm

I was driving to meet some people at a park yesterday. I realized I forgot to put on deodorant and, since the day was pretty warm, I thought I'd better stop on the way and buy some.

I went into a Rite Aid and located the right aisle. The shelves of deodorant had clear doors over them. I had to lift open the doors to access the deodorant, and then a loud chiming rang as long as the doors were open. I thought that was so bizarre!

I could not understand why they would bother to do this to deodorant only, an inexpensive item. Is there something I don't know about deodorant? Very strange.

    Perhaps there is an impending shortage of deo sticks in northern California?

    Oh, I think I know! Walgreens in my city puts those adhesive security tags on deodorant, as if it were a highly priced item. I asked about it and was told it was their number one most shop-lifted item.

    I guess in our society, having no trace of body odor or underarm sweat is so important at all times and places that people are willing to steal deodorant to save face. Incredible, huh?

    lol. we have security stickers on packs of razors (the venus and gillette variety - sell for around $16 for a pack of 4) and batteries, but haven't ever heard of deodorant like that hehe.

    I've seen the clinical strength deodorants behind doors before (the ones that cost upwards of $10) but never the regular 2 or 3 ones. That is strange.
