    Just a way for the manufacturer to get the store owner to "refresh" their shelves.
     
    (I'm anti-manufacturer this week)
     
    When I was selling hot sauce it only caused me to buy in smaller quantities.

      OK fishtaco, you must be on TF as well and started a similar thread. What's you handle there, you can PM me if you don't want to reveal your identity.
       
      I think it's just a ploy to get you to buy more shampoo. Next question, I have a lot of hair so mine goes so quickly it would never reach the expiration date, so you are either an infrequent shampooer or you are folically challenged. Which one?

          Truth is that some products break down after awhile or discolor.  The manufacturers want you to get its product at its best.

            LMAO, Yep that me over on TF. And I have a full head of long locks! Just had never noticed it before.
             
            ces, TF is TrackFourm, It is mainly IndyCar related.
