TIDE DETERGENT BEING SOLD ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD IN HOUSTON?

image

I’m not quite sure what’s sparking this new trend but have you noticed the detergent Tide being sold on the side of the roads in Houston?

I stumbled on this scene in north Houston where a booth had been set up just on the North Freeway and a man was selling Tide.

I’m not sure if the sells are sanctioned by Proctor and Gamble but apparently business is brisk.

A call to the maker of Tide has not been returned yet but I will get to the bottom of this new trend in our city.

HPD also says they have not received any reports of Tide being sold on the side of the roads but spokesman John Cannon did not say of if the selling of the detergent was against any city ordinance!

    Tide is being sold roadside across the city. 288 and almeda genoea and even at a yard sale off 610 and calais road. $40 for a big bucket or a bag. Is this real Tide or a knockoff ?

    Yes, I looked at the offering and I notice that the tide package appears to be in Chinese! We all know that some of the items that come from China contain levels of lead that are hazardous. I definitely am not willing to risk my health to save some money.

    Thanks but no thanks!

      The Tide is real. P& G is a multi-national company so they manufacture item in other countries for the local markets. Some of those items make it over hear. Nothing is wrong with or illegal about the items. If you are skeptical take a moment of your time and ask the vendor versus jumping to conclusions or making accusations without adequate foundation. Oh and please research what the meaning of the word ghetto is before continuing to use it in that context.

    This is what cities like NY or LA call globalization or international trade, brands are worldwide just an example , colgate Palmolive has operation in more than 50 countries. That mean than Anything made outside of US are fake????

    It’s counterfeit detergent. CBP started seizing shipments of this from China in 2011. Anyone who sees this happening should under NO circumstance buy any and contact your local law enforcement agency or customs and border control.

    Who buys detergent off the side of the road? That’s so ghetto. If some dude is sitting on the side of the road with a PILE OF LAUNDRY DETERGENT for sale (and cheaper than seems usual) people know that it’s either fake or more than likely STOLEN from a trailer somewhere. Normal people just don’t buy this stuff. Next you will be hearing about the strange rashes breaking out in those areas where this stuff is being sold. Don’t folks…….just don’t.

    Actually it is the real Tide distributed by P&G .
    It is not a knock off at $40 for 9 kg. Since at Sams the 6.3 kg goes for $26 hence 9 kg would come to around $35. + tax makes it to that neighborhood of $38 to $40.
