I was at the drug store and being the nosey type I always look around. Last week I noticed the sheves were empty of KY and other personal lubricants. I picked up what I needed ( no not KY !) and went to the counter. I knew they guy that was working so I asked him about it. He told me they always have a run on personal lubrcants right before valentiens day, most bought by women.

Most stores ore on an automated replentishment system (ARS) to resock goods. Chains (CVS, Brooks, Walgreens) will usially not stock up on anything that is not a "seasonal item" (decorations, heart-shaped chocolates, etc). The theory is that if they sell a tube of KY, the warehouse automatically puts a tube in with the next shipment so that the stock is always full. Sometimes, the item gets purchased faster than expected and there is a delay between the time it take to order (usually the register is connected to the ARS and orders instantly) and the time it takes for the next scheduled delivery.

Forgot to mention it earlier, but on my lunchbreak I went into a chemist and thought I'd check out the KY supplies. There was plenty, so if anyone is short... let me know.

It entirely depends on the store, but this isn't a standard replentishment system regardless. It's very expensive and almost unheard of to restock single items. More likely they restock by the case at the bare minimum. It is also common to restock items based on demand same week or month last year.

That said, I think this is one of those 'toilets flush more during the superbowl' things. I don't honestly think that people have sex so signifigantly more on Valentine's day that lubricants become hard to come by. More likely, in this particular case the store screwed up, didn't restock thier KY and this lead to people purchasing other products since that was all that was available. I would guess the store clerk was blowing smoke.

Beach...sex once a year on valentines days is pretty pathetic and sad...Life!

This is entirely speculation on my part, but maybe people aren't just having more sex, they're having more anal sex, therefore requiring more lube.

Actually I'm with Beachlife on this one. I can see there being a slightly higher demand, but not enough to wipe out the entire supply.

When I used to work at Kmart, some items were sent to us (from the warehouse) in a big box of single items that needed restocking, however, most items did come to us by the case. Some of the slower selling items were sent in the box.
Items like batteries, for example might sell fast enough that it is more economical to send it by the case, others sold slowly enough that only a single item had been sold during that period and so only a single item was sent (Philco headphones).
While such a system is costly to implement, the companies that use them feel that it is cheaper than paying someone to inventory and restock items more frequently. There is also method of placing orders manually as well.

Yes, this all makes sense, though KY wouldn't fall in the Philco headphones category.

You have to restock the item based on sales and inventory, or both. A good selling item may have an automatic restockage level of 25%. A slower seller might have a restockage level of 5%. It all depends on sales, overhead costs, and shipping efficiency.

Large stores can get away with less-than-caseload quantities when they order from their suppliers, but probably only stores like KMart, Wal*Mart, and maybe Target. Perhaps stores' distribution centers allow it, as well, but that doesn't make a whole lot of labor sense.

As for why the store was out, I wonder if a quick quality check indicated that all the available product was past expiration date, which can happen if they don't sell a caseload quantity in a year.

Richard W, YOMANK

AnglRdr, that makes sense. I've heard that lubricants have a pretty long expiration date though. Or perhaps my friends are just gross and use old lube.

ETA: Or maybe there's a "sell by" date and the lube's still good at home for awhile after that, like milk. Well, not exactly like milk.

KY does have an expiration date, but no sell by date.

I'm surprised no one has suggested that there was a slip-up at the KY factory.

My guess is that people are willing to be more open (no pun intended!) on Valentine's. So, maybe anal sex, maybe other things... Plus, KY has massage oils and stuff now, too.

I know I find Valentine's Day a good time to experiment (and to talk my partner into experimenting).

I don't care what anybody says, Kentucky Jelly tastes terrible. How did those people in Kentucky create such a demand for their product?


I'll get it [fish]

Anybody ever go to the drugstore just to buy a tube of KY Jelly, and just out of embarassment, buy a baby thermometer too just so the cute cashier won't think you're a loser with nothing better to do on a Friday night? ...or is it just me?

Robbiev -anybody need a baby thermomether? I've got plenty to spare- 427

I did the same thing once at an adult bookstore, although instead of buying a birthday card, I made a statement about buying it for a bachelor party. Yeah, bachelor party *innocent whistling continues*

BTW...shouldn't have been necessary at Spencer's (didn't know those were still around). Those boxes said "Back Massager" didn't they? What's so embarassing about buying a back massager? [Wink] [Wink]

Cleaning up my room i found an old promo thing from a box of condoms, that was advertising how their lube was sold, 5ml sachets, up to 500ml pump packs. I laughed so hard at the pump pack.
Hooray i'm not the only person who buys things' for a friend or party'. I always grab something else when i get anything like that, and they really need to move the condoms and lube into an area with something intersteing than panadol to pretend you are looking at.

It's pretty depressing when I'm cleaning my room and I find a box of 12 condoms I bought at the beginning of the month, and it's the end of the month and there are still a dozen left.

Robbiev -oh...wait, you thought I was kidding- 427 [Frown]

Hooray i'm not the only person who buys things' for a friend or party'. I always grab something else when i get anything like that, and they really need to move the condoms and lube into an area with something intersteing than panadol to pretend you are looking at.

I think there should be a special section with it's own cash register and the cashier should be really ugly and disgusting looking and won't hardly speak. Intead, I always seem to get the friendly, chatty, cute 21 year old college student, who I might have asked out if I wasn't standing there with a bottle of KY and a Hustler magazine. I can just hear myself now. "I was going to go home by myself tonight and have a jerk-fest, but if you're interested in a date with me, I could wait and spend this $9.00 on you instead." How romantic.

Either that, or as I'm walking up to the cashier, I realize it's someone I know from church and have to quickly ditch the stuff and buy a pack of gum.

Robbiev -yep, it's 1:00 AM and all I came in for was this pack of Wrigley's- 427

Every time I see a good looking woman, I think, "0oooh. There's another one I'll never have!"

Corvette. The louder you scream, the faster I'll go.
