30 Tissues Disappear From Redesigned Kleenex Box At Costco

As we all know, Costco is the place to get the hottest deals on huge quantities of consumer goods. For example, you can buy a box of Kleenex tissues that contains 260 pieces. Which isn’t a very big quantity, come to think of it…but now it’s shrinking.


Reports reader Elizabeth: the smaller box has “a new design, and a claim that the tissues are thicker.” Her verdict? “Not so much, they feel the same.” Maybe the extra thickness and sneeze-shielding ability is beyond our mere human powers of perception.
