They steal toothpaste?

It’s not in short supply, there are shelves full of it, but when daughter went to buy a tube of her favourite, it was locked behind a see through cabinet. I asked why that particular brand was behind locked doors and the assistant told us: “They steal it, they come in and sweep it off in armfuls and walk out with it”. Are these dental outrages for a reason I ask. “ They resell them and use the cash” Why don’t they take these I asked pointing to another unguarded brand. “Not a popular brand” she responded.

Toothpaste retails at around 6.00 to 8.00 dollars per tube. Who would have thought that Sensodine was a black market product here in sunny California?
