i usually get over-the-counter medication & vitamin supplement from Guardian, but occasionally i go to Watsons because they have a discount section where items with short expiry dates are sold at between 30 - 70% less.
today i purchased a bottle of chewable vitamins whose expiry date is 20 Sept, at 70% discount. while making payment, the guy at the counter reminded me of the expiry date & even advised that i keep the bottle away from sunlight &, after opening, to store in the fridge, to prolong its shelf life.
how informative, customer-friendly & RARE is this?? it made my day & just goes to show that it doesn't take much to make a customer happy.
if we were in a restaurant or hotel, i would have given him a tip!
PS. those in the pharmaceutical industry can confrim that those pills are effective up to 6 months after their stated expiry date.
