Reed aggressive pricing and placement in mainstream grocer with 4 flavors!
regular priced @ $3.49 on sale @ $2.69 no competitors in Kombucha in Giant Eagle! No Hain, No GT Synergy, No Bucci Reed has history in soda with this strong regional market in W.Va, Pa, and Ohio! Giant Eagle out of Pittsburgh who years ago took over many Big Bear locations and expanded.
Visited the 2 Giant Eagle stores in MD today and the story over there it is exactly what zzwildman wrote. Exp. dates on bottles- 11/17/13. Thanks, zzwildman. Now listen you Reed's naysayers, what just happened? Even while dealing with a bunch of problems, Reed's still managed to add a big new K customer, GE, and stocked a bunch (if not all) of those stores with fresh K during the quarter!
zzwildman couple of questions:
The 4 flavors you saw priced @ 2.69 - do you recall if they were the "old" flavors or were any one of them part of the "new" flavors (new flavors are mango, grape, coconut....)
Second question - did you happen to see the expiration date on these 4 flavors priced @ 2.69.
The flavors are "old" ones. Rasberry, Goji ginger. I have been checking stock for a couple weeks and haven't seen the new flavors yet. They were also on sale at the Giant Eagle by me (2.69). There were only 6 bottles of each of these two flavors. I bought a few so they need to restock. Where is the expiration date at? I was trying to find it on these bottles but couldn't locate it anywhere.
