Sunday newsagency challenge: touch every item you sell

I bought an item from a newsagency last week that had a price abel that had to be at least five years old. It made me wonder what the policy in the business was about old stock.

My challenge today is for you to touch everything you sell. I expect that through the process you will touch items you throw away rather than put back on the shelves.

    On the Christmas eve we sold out our large bags, when we searched for more bags in the drawers we found some bags with tags from 2009. we put them out and sold them all. I felt so good 🙂

    Shame on you Eric for having 2009 stock. (Joking) Seriously, though – clear everything.
