For some reason unknown to me, there is a supermarket near to our house that when a line is discontinued or whatever, they reduce the price of their products to a matter of pennies, remove all the labelling from them and leave them there. If you go with the hand scanners that you can use in supermarkets, and you scan the products you see without labels on them, you can legitimately put products into your trolley that have had a 99.999% reduction. According to my friend, this is perfectly legal and legitimate - but she says you have to be careful not to be caught with the products because they can say "Oh that wasn't for sale" and take it back. The fact that you have to be covert about it makes me think it's not as legal and legitimate as she says it is. Nonetheless, every couple of months she shows me her latest haul, and sometimes it can be really valuable things like home products and expensive chocolates, and she paid only a few pence for loads. To me it feels like this might be classed as stealing, but then I don't know why the store leaves these products there. I wonder whether maybe they remove the labelling and then wait until the store closes before taking them off the shelves. Or whether there's some law which means they have to leave them to sell for a miniscule amount before disposing of them. Does anyone know?
