I agree with what you say about the Gillette pricing. I was at Walgreen's yesterday, and was shocked to see that a ten pack was going for $8.50. I couldn't understand it, when Merkurs go for $4.50, and Feathers for $6. Of course, I would have to pay shipping for the Merkurs and Feathers, but if I buy multiple packs at a time, it would still cost considerably less than the Gillettes.
Thanks for your feedback.
