The increase applies to all basis weights, bulks, finishes and related private label grades.
This ought to make some people pretty happy. On Thursday, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf ordered all businesses in that state that aren’t “life-sustaining” to close.
But, as Procter & Gamble is quick to point out, that order did not include a plant the giant CPG company operates there.
That plant manufactures Charmin toilet paper, the nation’s best-selling brand. At a time Americans for some reason just can’t seem to get enough TP, news that the plant is officially exempted from the Pennsylvania order is, well, a relief.
