That's my guess. I know my local Bi-Lo and a Publix are now doing this because people were taking the entire display of coupon booklets. Not only this one but others.

I'm thinking this is probably the reason. It wouldn't surprise me if the original poster and myself shop at the same Shaws, although I haven't been in store in a few days so I don't know if the books are pulled. It always seems that the displays of coupons are wiped out. It doesn't matter if it's a Shaws Coupon book or MQs on displays. I remember a month or so ago when the Picollini pasta was cheap or free with a coupon in the store book...there were a ton in store the day before the sale, I grabbed a couple to use the next day. When I went back the next evening, both displays were completely wiped out. Some people are just not very good at sharing. :-\

I usually pick up one or two booklets each shopping trip (assuming they are well stocked) --- and my store still had an entire display full of booklets as of yesterday. Guess it depends on the store.

When Extreme Couponing became a series, the tear pads disappeared quickly at the store which I frequent. I remember Shaw's deals went through a lull when Supervalu tried to sell the chain. I think the lack of deals dissuaded these people.

I've never had a problem with stock. This is why I was surprised by the stores reaction. Then again, I was told to leave the Burlington, MA store for using catalina's. The coupon bin was full from previous shoppers and the store manager assumed it was us that filled it without looking. I remember my son sitting on the floor crying because I asked if I could purchase a cake for his birthday. I was told no so I threw the cake on the floor. Shaw's is a very inconsistent chain.

OMG That is horrible. Poor Kid.

The store that I go to most of the time had the cornucopia books in the back of customer service counter when the cous cous sale was going on..Im assuming so that noone took them all.
