So, I've been shopping at Shoppers Drug Mart for as long as I've had my own money to spend. I tend to like their assortment of goods, and I like their house-brand products.
Lately, (the last ten or so years), Shoppers Drug Mart has begun to brown me off. They will get a very good product for their house brand, and then, once you have decided that you like it and would like to continue buying it, they discontinue the product. They've done it with a hair serum and a shea butter and a shampoo & rinse most recently.
But now they have gone too far.
I like to use non-aerosol shaving cream. More importantly, I have very fussy skin, and I need to be very careful what I put on my skin. I happen to be a woman who shaves every day, so the quality of the shaving cream is crucial. Previously, the whole of western Canada ceased to carry gillette's non-aerosol version of skintimates, which was lovely, and I have had to make do with substandard stuff that left me with razor burn. Bah.
Then Shoppers Drug Mart came out with a house brand called Pur Sensitive Skin non-aerosol shave cream.
It was *amazing*.
It was *AMAZING* - and I have been happily using it for the last two or so years.
But tonight I disovered that it has been discontinued. Please note that I left the store without buying anything. I used to always buy more than just my shaving cream, because once I was in the store, why not, eh? I have decided that I am not going to buy anything from Shoppers Drug Mart until the fabulous shaving cream comes back. I can buy any of the other things that Shoppers Drugs carries at any of a dozen stores.
I am ceasing to reward Shoppers Drug Mart for continually failing me.
