Why you may soon pay more for Huggies, Scott bathroom tissue and other household essentials
(Gray News) - Some household supplies are expected to cost more at the grocery store in the coming months because of market impacts.
Kimberly-Clark, which makes popular brands Huggies, Kleenex and Pull-Ups, announced Wednesday it plans to increase prices in its baby and child care, adult care and Scott Bathroom tissue businesses.
The Texas-based corporation said the increases will take effect in late June because of “significant commodity cost inflation.”
While Kimberly-Clark didn’t list all brands affected by the price hike, it did say net selling prices will increase “across a majority of its North America consumer products business.”
Other brands Kimberly-Clark manufactures include Poise, Cottonelle, Depend and Viva.
Customers can expect price percentage increases ranging from the mid-to-high single digits.
