P & G Making Changes Again to Powder Detergent
I happen to be at a Walmart last week and noticed that the boxes of powder Gain detergent has changed. No, not the amount per use, but the amount in the box. Instead of an 80 load box, you will get a 68(?) load box. I believe the 120 load box is the same and cannot confirm the small box load. While at Kmart last week, I noticed it had not filtered down to them yet.
Today, while at a Smart and Final, I noticed they had only one Gain he 80 loads on the shelf. Looking on the overflow top shelf, they had the smaller 68's waiting to stock. The price had even gone up.
I cannot say if they are doing the same thing with Tide or Cheer, but I thought I recalled some boxes of Tide were different at Walmart. I looked at the Gain website and nothing has changed. Tide does not even show the load size on their one site. I might not have looked hard enough.
I think a 12 load decrease is a large amount.
While you are at your local store, check out the load sizes.
