except that they're just exactly the same?
i bought these 6 cans of coke for £2.19. so why couldn't they just sell them separately for 37p?
but if they sell them for the appropriately low price (case price/6) then it doesn't make a difference
as stated above, it's a basic economic law/rule. you buy more, you get it at a lower unit cost.
people should always buy multipacks and it would force down the cost of single cans
I am the smartest man alive.
thus saving on the economies of scale there too
if you went into a shop and saw cans of coke with NOT TO BE SOLD SEPERATELY on the side and then just behind the counter the shopkeep has extensive lab equipment created solely for the purposes of separating the chemical ingredients of cans of coke and as you walk up to the counter you realise he has a massive grudge against authority
has a 'plan'
and by selling them seperately people will be not following what the brand owner planned.
Brand owners like this tend to be powerful and have freinds that are involved in legislation.
My recommendation is that it doesnt matter to you guys so do what you want to, you have no responsibility to their plan
they do it though.
And I NEVER buy it if it doesn't have the "made in GB" stamp on the side.
Trickle down effect!
What's all that about then?
I could redeem them somewhere and receive a few pence? Where would I go to do this - the bank, the shop, or post them off somewhere?
