The economics of bulk buying|
One of the cheap shops at the grotty end of town did something even more extreme. They advertised bars of soap at 30p each or three for £1. You'd be amazed how many people bought three.
A friend of my ex-husband's, who was short of money but not brains, actually wanted three bars of soap, asked to be charged for them individually, and was told that this wasn't allowed. He would have to be charged for three. So he bought one bar of soap, then queued at the checkout again for the other two.
