I don't see what difference it makes how things are packed.  If people with
sticky fingers want to pinch things they just take them off the shelves and
deal with the packing when they get home.  They wouldn't normally take
things out of boxes.

Hi All,  you must remember that these are done like this to stop the people 
with sticky fingers  from taken the items,  with the old type of package it 
was very easy to do,  so this is why it is like this.
