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. :-\
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.
