Say, does that Just For Men hair coloring work, ol' timer? :D ;)
The local independent British chemist is fairly rare sight now days, usually you find these in small towns or at the back street of the larger cities. Hat off to whoever stock something other than Axe and dear old Mr Beckham. More pics of the same shelve for your enjoyment.

Now that is a proper mens section! Hats off to your chemist, it puts the bigger stores to shame!

That's a great selection! I only have the Well pharmacies near me and they don't stock any classic shaving products. I've wanted to try Ingrams, Erasmic and WS stick but they so expensive online given their normal price. I'll keep my eyes open next time I'm in the depths of Devon and Cornwall for a pharmacy like that.

Palmolive sticks have been made in Germany for years, so that email from Colgate isn't really news. Just because a product is made abroad, doesn't mean it isn't sold in the UK.

Now if they said they were stopping manufacture of it completely then I'd be worried :)

Still available in Asda, Wilko and superdrug...

Or am I missing something here?!

Used to be everywhere Along with that horrible Wilky blue bowl c**p And those plastic wilky brushes, Well my local Superdrug has none but local private pharmacy has them on clearance offer at 50p a go I asked why on clearance and she said it just a slow seller but said ordering more was not an issue if I needed bulk ??? so anyway just in case I bought 25. And 4 tubes of Cream to ensure I have plenty for a bit of uberlthering I have only used palmolive trumpers coconut cream, and proraso for the last few years I sold all my other soaps

The Palmolive Classic line is not distributed in the UK by Colgate. It is purchased directly by Wilko, ASDA etc and they distribute it. If Colgate UK have delisted the line its because no one buys it through them anymore. I try to tell people when they ask but we are still getting many doomsday like purchases.
The Armageddon has been postponed.

Thanks for the info though Paul.

Polsilvers are not currently in production, not sure if P&G ever kill a brand they own. Although I have NOS Silver Blues they have been made in 2017/18, I just can't get them anymore. Petersburg tend to do big runs of one blade then stop & set up for the next type, so I am told. The newest blades from late 2017 are laser etched on one side, single wrapped. For us the Silver Blue & 7 o'clock Sharp Edge are the most popular, but Gillette normally reserve the Platinum brand for their top of the line blade. Polsilver were different but they were meant for Eastern Europe distribution, 7 o'clocks are normal distributed out of Dubai. I find the 7 'clock and Platinum both very good but I prefer the Sharp Edge, smoother for me.

The NOS Silver Blues you have are double wrapped right, have printing on both sides and have 4 large glue spots? I think the current Silver Blues are etched on one side, blank on the other and are single wrapped which is the way PPI are making all their blades now.

Gillette PPI seem to have two different packaging for their Platinum line, the one which is dark blue text on a white box with a dark blue border, I think this one is for the Arabic market. The other one is white text on a blue printing, and that one seems to be for the Eastern European market (maybe Bulgaria).

Yes, there are also Silver Blues and others that are single wrapped, with printing and the new style glue spots. They are made before 2017 but after 2011/12 I think, I don't always get packing slips with production dates. Also Gillette have been selling Platinums (dark blue) in TAOS stores, I believe these are Brazil made ones.

The former is sold in the USA as well by the AOS stores.
