Costco sells over ONE BILLION rolls of toilet paper 🧻🧻🧻 each year. That’s enough to stretch from …

the Earth to the Moon and back over 47 times!

Toilet paper is the best selling Costco product, generating over $400 million in sales annually.

The company hires technicians to test the toilet paper based on thickness, strength, and softness.

The toilet paper sold by Costco annually could cover the entire city of San Francisco about 35 times!

Merchandise managers often take tours of the toilet paper mills to check the water used in the production, paper quality, and humidity levels.

During the pandemic, Costco limited Members to one package per day and often ran out of toilet paper completely. The “TP Tracker” we built to help Members track, in real time, which stores still had toilet paper in stock generated almost one million views and over 10,000 member submissions.

These fun facts are inspired by the new book “The Joy of Costco – A Treasure Hunt from A to Z” by David & Susan Schwartz.  This is such an awesome book and obviously a lot of time, care, and research went into making it.

Pick a few up on Amazon (or you may also find it at your local Costco) and give them as Holiday gifts to the Costco lovers in your life.
