You are moved to the second shelf. U are not the first the interested parties look at but u are still in the eye level with a little struggle
U are moved to the third isle. At this point you are not at the eye level any longer and usually discounted a bit and lower income customers look to buy you
You moved to the 4th row with sign old price versus discounted price only limited number of customers look there out of necessity.
Your are moved into the bin in the middle isle heavily discounted. Customers roam through and pick up and throw down and fewer customers will buy you
You are getting close to expiration date. The store sells u at discount to Dollar stores.
U are donated to the food kitchens if they accept you or need you
U are bundled up and sent overseas at 5% of the cost
In order to be happy in life don’t try to jump out of the bin and back into the upper shelves
