Today I traveled 47 miles to your store in Crossett, Arkansas, to purchase herbicide to spray the fence rows on our family farm.
There was a 2.5 gallon container of concentrated Round Up, which I usually purchase, for $129.99 and a "generic" brand for $37.99 for 2.5 gallons. I attempted to purchase the $37.99 brand and was told I could not, as I do not have a "license" to purchase that product. The store manager could not give me good reason why I could purchase the more expensive 2.5 gallon container of Round Up, but not the other product. He stated "it's a law", yet could not produce such a law nor could he give me any information. He further explained something about "wind blowing" the product. Apparently, wind does not blow the more expensive Round Up or the smaller containers of the "generic" product - which I could buy without a license. Since we have 200 acres, it is not economically feasible to purchase the smaller bottles.
My question is this - why didn't the manager know why he could sell one product and not another? His explanation made no sense, as the product in the smaller container and the Round Up would have the same effect if "blown by the wind".
I am very disappointed in Atwoods for having a product on the shelves they "cannot" sell to the consumer/farm owner. There were no signs stating I could not purchase the "generic" product on the display until after I questioned why the product I wanted was not available to me.
I have not had a problem buying herbicides before and find the so-called explaination by the Atwoods store manager rather lame. At the very least, he should have been able to tell me what law does not allow me to purchase the lesser expensive product. I won't be shopping at Atwoods - but will travel up to Little Rock to buy my supplies at Tractor Supply.
