Last week Aldi was selling digital kitchen scales for $9.99. A few days before the sale went live I saw on a deals site that this would be the case. The sale started on a Wednesday, store opened at 9. I went in around 11 and all scales were gone. Someone I know works there, they called other stores in the area, all sold out. Wow, I thought!
Couple days later I saw my friend and she said turns out kitchen scales are very popular items when one runs a meth lab!! She commented that workers were saying that people were buying them up like crazy and most of those people looked, shall we say, um, seedy?
So the next time you buy a kitchen scale, now you know what the cashier is thinking!
