In the shops now! Full-price, half-empty deals
Two consumer issues here, courtesy of Go-Cat; the first is of interest to environmentally-conscious folks, the second to cynical consumers:
It's difficult to judge by the photo, but the box is newly opened yet barely half-full. Considering that cat biscuits are solid and rarely noted for their need to settle during transit:
- surely the box could be made at least a third smaller? Not only would that save a lot of packaging, but it might mean you could fit the bloody thing in the cupboard
- how many people equate size with value and would be more likely to buy the "bigger" box, despite it been half-full of bugger all?
Wasteful and misleading, and probably not the worst offender. Let us have your tales of retail wrong-doing at [email protected]
