    Good Chlorine price in Southern Ohio area

    So I've been buying 10% Chlorine at the pool store (Leslies) for $19.99.

    We were at our local grocery store last night (Kroger) and walked by an end cap, and what do I see?
    A 4 pack of 10% for $10.99.
    I thought it was a pretty good price so I bought 4 cases of it.

    Not sure where in southern OH you are but i can usually find 10% at my local Biggs for 10$ a case, not sure how fresh it is but their stock seems to get depleted father quickly so i guess it isn't too bad, i'm just north of cincinnati. 20$ seems really high to me....my local guy sells 10-12.5% for 15 a case

    geosojda, that's what I was saying.
    I was tired of paying $19.99 for a case at Leslie's, and then I found the case at Kroger for $10.99.
    I don't shop at Biggs...well no longer Biggs by me, now its Rempke.

    Remke bought out a few of the Bigg's locations around here.

    If you do a Google search for Remke buys Biggs you'll find a lot of local articles if you're interested.

    It was called, Champion Pool Shock.

    Wal Mart has 1g containers of 6% bleach for $2.54 each (~$ 2 cents per oz).

    Wal Mart also has a 2 gallon package of 10% chlorine for about $11. Since I don't know how long the 10% chlorine has been on the shelf I buy the 6% when I am there.

    Sam's Club has 3 packs of 1.44g (182oz) containers of 6% Chlorox bleach for $8.12 (~1.5 cents per oz).

    I may have to take a trip to my local Kroger and see if they have the same deal. While the price is similar to what I am paying per ounce for 6%, I would only have to use about half as much.

    Yeah I saw that there when I went to pick up some CYA, but that was after I bought my Kroger stuff.
