MerchandiseSome of your listings say "these are repack shelf pulls". What does that mean?
Repacked cases or shelf pulls mean that the product is not packaged in it's original manufacturer's case. An example of repacking may be because of original case damage, where the good products are pulled and repacked. Shelf pull items may have previously been available for sale in a retail environment but were never sold. They usually possess one or more price tags and/or stickers, indicating multiple markdowns and have been exposed to appreciable customer contact. In addition, since most of these items are sent through a reverse supply chain (e.g., from a retailer back to a centralized warehouse), they can show signs of further handling. Accordingly, these items can exhibit a wide range of individual product and package conditions that can differ substantially from the original manufacturing
