Grocery Store Etiquette Revisited.
Advertisements [?]

We all know that grocers rotate their stock so that items with expiration dates in the near future are closest to the consumer, while identical items which will not expire for a while are toward the back. This of course is done so that consumers will purchase the items which are about to expire and thereby prevent the store from suffering a loss by having to remove and discard any older, expired items still on the shelf.

Question: It is bad / wrong / unfair to take the fresher items from the back?

Along those lines, of what use are the "Sell by" dates if they don't tell you when the item actually expires?
