    Bleach Price Increase

    I went to Wal Mart this morning to stock back up on 182 oz. jugs of Great Value Bleach. It has gone up to $2.98. That's a price increase of almost 50 cents all at once.
    I guess we are lucky they held the old price as long as they did. It's getting harder to buy it in bulk at our local Wally World. More often than not, the shelf is bare.
    I always go super early when I plan to buy alot. I have to get there before it's gone, especially on weekends.

    One more reason to go with an intex SWCG on sale now at walmart.com for $100. This will surely produce more chlorine than 30 jugs of bleach.

    Leebo, it's still a better deal than Baquacil.

    I noticed this too. I thought it was just a local thing. Anyone notice if other places raised their price too? Aldi's, Sam's or Target?

    Carl Ichan is trying to take over Clorox. Wild guess that corporate concerns have something to do with it. Raise prices to improve profitability, stave off takeover. Or maybe just flow through of costs.

    Re: Bleach Price Increase

    I noticed this too last week. I went to Sam's to get Clorox, been paying $7.48 for 3 182oz. jugs and found out it went up to $8.54! So I decided to wait until I went to Walmart and just buy GV. Well, when I got there I noticed the GV 182oz. jugs had went up to $2.98, was just $2.79 a few days before. So I guess I will be staying with Sam's since it still comes out a few cents cheaper and I shop there for other items anyway. I was really shocked by the large increase though.

    My local Dollar General had 182oz for $2.75. They were my backup to Walmart. They don't even sell 182oz house brand. I'm swinging by my local Walmart tonight.

    "Billionaire investor Carl Icahn said Friday he intends to nominate 11 people, including himself, to replace Clorox Co.'s whole board at the company's next shareholder meeting.

    The move, revealed in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, further escalates the battle between the household-products company and the activist shareholder, who owns about a 9.4% stake between him and his affiliate entities. .................."
