That means that the store bought it and now resells, but much more expensive. The same situation is with medical masks, which cost in some stores 10 dollars now, with normal price of 20 cents.
But that is not the worst example. In another Sydney shop you can find the same bottle of antiseptic (450 ml) which costs 50 dollars.
