Kitco says Gillette posted the losses because of competition from good dollar store brands but I'd then like to ask why Schick and others are not posting similar losses. I have the answer:
I buy nothing but name brand razors because if you use them properly, they last a FULL YEAR each. I use Schick Extreme 3's which only cost 50 cents each in a giant Sam's pack and they last a FULL YEAR each. And I DID buy Gillette occasionally before getting that huge pack, (which ended my razor expenses) but will not EVER AGAIN if something happens to my stache. FACT: If you buy a car after the company that sells it bashed you, your race, or your civilization, you're a spineless moron. At this time, that leaves only Dodge, Jeep and Fiat as cars I'd consider new because I can't afford a Tesla (which would also be an option because Musk has not pulled the SJW crap) - Do that, and I AM GONE. And the same is true for everything from canned foods to Kleenex to a Disney movie to razors, pull that crap, and I'll eat Chinese forever if that becomes the only way to eat and not pander to social programming BULLSHIT.
Adios Gillette, you are posting losses on par with Boeing over the SJW rot and I could really care less if Boeing dies after what they did to all their great engineers just because they were white, they are trying to shift the blame for the failure of the SJW MAX over to Whitie but the effort is largely failing because it is too obviously patently false. Adios Gillette, Boeing, (hopefully Nike) and whoever else takes a crap on their roots including Dicks Sporting Goods, which has now posted enormous losses - I'd rather see them gone and if others stood their ground well enough, we'll see LOTS MORE get tossed in the ash bin of history. I'll be disappointed if anyone who tries to damage our civilization further than it has already been damaged survives in business after trying.
