I guess if you were generous, you could consider it a win for advertising the product by having the bins on display in the front entryway.
The brand name was getting some good traffic, right?
I wasn’t feeling so generous when I found the real Lil’ Snappers meant for those bins buried elsewhere in the department.
I understand retailers need to do the best they can with what they’ve got, and resources are tight.
Not everyone has high-graphic, decorative private-labeled boxes to build with, like a Whole Foods store, and not everyone can go out and order brand new bins for every season.
But make sure your thriftiness isn’t costing you elsewhere — particularly in accountability with consumers and vendors who supply the materials.
