Gillette is hurting in Russia…

I have talked about Gillette and that they deserve to go out of business and that I will never buy a Gillette razor again…

Gillette! Yes anti-Gillette in Russia also…

Gillette has raised recently their prices, four times and even five times the original price in Russia. I mean seriously, they have reduced the quantity (9 razors now at 3 in the pack for a higher price.) and raised the price. I at one time (two weeks ago) could buy 5 basic double blade Gillette razors for around 89 rubles. They now sell at 599 rubles at Globus. The image is of their checkout stock and I will tell you that hardly anyone will buy them…

The Russian manufacturing has produced the equivalent razors, at the same quality and higher quantity in a package for what is now 69 rubles a 5 pack… (Touch more than a Dollar for five razors.)

A company that raises the price this high in the foreign market shows that it is under stress. It either means that the US market is collapsing and or has collapsed and they are trying to make up some profit downfall by foreign sales increases. This is a stop gap measure and even more Russians will stop buying Gillette…

I have to smile when I see a company as pathetic as Gillette falter. They will lie and cover it up for a year or more. That is typical corporate manner, but it will start showing on their bottom line in the future…

Gillette you deserve to be out of business for your slanted, hateful advertisement to your biggest buyers of razor products…
