Supermarket In Denmark Comes Up With A Brilliant Way To Counter Those Hoarders…

People are hoarding toilet paper, hand sanitizer, masks, water, guns, you name it as you can see from all the resulting Coronavirus Memes. Well, one supermarket in Denmark came up with a genius pricing trick to counter the hoarders and panic buying.

From “Rotunden” supermarket in Denmark:

Apparently, Denmark’s Rotunden supermarket is now selling at the following prices on the 1st and 2nd bottles of hand sanitizer:

1 bottle kr40 (€5.50 or $5.73)

2 bottles kr1,000 (€134.00 or $143) per bottle (after the first).

Well, hoarding instantly stopped, as one might expect. The store posted a message explaining the pricing decision :

β€œDear customers,
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 state in the letter.

Of course, there was a range of, mostly positive, reactions on Twitter :
