Costco resizes Kirkland ice cream

A repackaging of Kirkland Signature ice cream from Costco is done with consumersā€”and their freezersā€”in mind.

The May 16, 2006 issue of Warehouse Club Focus included a visit to a Costco store where publisher Michael Clayman found two is better than one:

In the freezer category, Costco changed the packaging on its Kirkland Signature vanilla ice cream. Instead of packaging the ice cream in a one-gallon container, Costcoā€™s new vanilla ice cream package includes two half-gallon containers and retails for $7.29. Costco continues to offer the same value on the product, but now it is just as appealing to a consumer as it was to a business member.

Previously, consumers might avoid purchasing a gallon-size container of ice cream due to its size. With the new package, consumers are more likely to purchase two half-gallon containers of ice cream as it can be more easily stored and accessed than larger gallon containers.
