RALEIGH, N.C. — Among the best kinds of gifts are those that don’t cost the gift giver too much and also help the gift recipient save money. Kerr Drug is stocking an item that does both.
Starting Wednesday, Kerr Drug stores across North Carolina began selling Razorpit, a Danish-designed device distributed by Perma Brands that uses a friction-based method to remove residues of hair, skin and soap that cause razor blades to go dull, potentially extending the life of a razor from 10 shaves to 150. Perma Brands estimated that with most five-blade cartridges costing around $4.51, the Razorpit can save men $200 in the first year alone.
“The No. 1 complaint that we hear from customers about shaving products is the cost and short lifespan of razor blades,” Kerr Drug SVP merchandising and marketing Bill Baxley said. “We think that Razorpit is something that every dad should have to complement their shaving routine.”
