I'm guessing this was a pricing error?

You better park that new truck around the corner from now on and go in on foot.

The Swiss have a base on the Moon and they are exporting cheese now?

My thoughts exactly, wasn't there a nursery rhyme that said the moon was made of Swiss cheese? Lol!

Goofy store.
Ya always gotta be paying attention
If it wasn't for the fact that I figured 10 bucks would cover my purchases, I could have been walking out of there with $51 worth of cheese... enough for about three sandwiches

In the past 12 months the value of the Swiss Franc (denominated in $US) has risen nearly 40% but I do not think that the 'Swiss' cheese pictured in Pacanis' post is from Switzerland.
Murray's has some very good stuff, wish he was in my area-
Cheese - Emmentaler Swiss, Gourmino
