Genius pricing trick made people stop hoarding sanitizers!
Since the whole Coronavirus situation happened , everyobody has been stocking up toilet paper , medical respirators and sigle-use medical gloves like there is no tomorrow . But there is one thing also that people are hoarding like crazy. HAND SANITIZER of course!
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.
While people are stocking up on it like crazy, this supermarket in Denmark came up with a genius way to put an end to it with this simple yet brilliant pricing trick.
Apparently, the store is now selling one bottle of sanitizer for 40 DKK ($4.09) while two bottles cost 1,000 DKK ($95)

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 explain in the letter.
