Default Re: Why must some companies make price increases that are sneaky--not straightforward

And I had long assumed that they were just the same--except for a slight price difference.

Well, I was mistaken.

Upon closer examination, the Walmart tissues are 80 to a box; whereas the Kroger tissues are just 65 to a box.

But the boxes look just alike. So that is not easily discernible.

Whoda thunk it?
That's called being a good shopper.

Try Awesome products. They manufacture or import products for the dollar stores. Most if not all of their products are at least as good as the expensive brand name products.
