I was in the local "Big Lots" store and as I do in most stores, I gravitate over to the shaving isle. They were selling generic double blade Trac II type cartridges made by ASR for $4.49 for a 10 pack. OK, so that's 45 cents per cartridge. Next to them there are bags of ASR double blade Trac II type disposable razors. A bag of 20 of these disposable razors cost $1.80! That's 9 cents a piece for the blade and the razor! I would think the disposables would be more expensive than the cartridges but it isn't so. Any thoughts on why this is?
