Store Attempts To Dissuade Customers From Trying On Condoms Before Buying

There is already a great deal of information for consumers printed on boxes of condoms, covering everything from proper use to possible allergic reactions to effectiveness in preventing pregnancy and transmission of infectious disease. But one store felt the need to post its own advisory about condoms: That you shouldn’t crack open a box to try one on without paying.

Over at Reddit, someone posted this image (which we believe to be from a Walgreens) of a sign on the condom shelf reading, “ATTENTION: Please DO NOT open or try on product… thank you.”
