Why is my favorite TP no longer available? What is happening with our distribution network? Why no Scott?

What other shortages are you all encountering?

At this point I’d be happy with ANY brand of toilet paper. Let’s just say I’m eying up the leaves just in case.

I was forced to buy an off brand of lavender scented TP. They did have single rolls of Scott but way over priced so I gave in. Had a lavender-induced asthma attack in the car (the package was still sealed) including tingling lips and tongue. I put it out on the curb with a sign that said 12 free rolls of toilet paper and within an hour they were gone. I hope I didn't kill anybody!

I don’t understand it.   Why is everyone still hoarding toilet paper? It’s not even edible.  Yet every grocery trip I can’t find my fav brand Either cottonelle ripples.  Been using generic for the past few months...bah!

Scott is made near my home  available here--big sign outside plant that they've ramped up production.  Their website suggests can order from office depothttps://www.scottbrand.com/en-us/products. 

Disclaimer:  DH has 10 shares of stock.   However, he's switched to Charmin that we get from BJ's in bulk.   😉

Interesting. I asked the stocking fellow in the aisle, why no Scott.  He said, they cannot get any.

Lots of frozen mango at Grocery Outlet here. Good price too.

I prefer Charmin mega rolls, but I haven't been able to locate any in over 2 months. I'm lucky if I can find generic TP, which is usually terrible but better than nothing. Right now we're using some one-ply paper. I am not a fan. But again, it's better than nothing and we have plenty of it.

OMG! You, too???!! I thought this virus situation and wearing masks all day was making me overly sensitive. What a relief!

On another note, I generally purchase groceries to last for three months; I live alone, so it doesn’t take much. To be forced into reactive hoarding doesn’t sit well with me. My organization offered toilet paper at a discount. Having had too many close calls, I gave in and placed my order: one case. I thought, no big deal. When it arrived, I saw this huge unmarked box. What the ****?!

When I got home and opened it, my mouth dropped open. It was 80 rolls! Not only that, it was Scott Tissue, one-ply (the kind my dad used to buy back in the old days when I was a youngster). OMG, I’m roughin’ it out here.😭😭😭

I'm not sure where you all are but I can get Scott TP, Frozen fruit including Pineapple  and Mango). There are some shortages here but we have direct connections for eggs, fruit, and vegies. I am think of going in with 2 neighbors to buy a whole steer and divide up the meet.

The TP hoarding seems to have passed where I am, thankfully, as well as hand sanitizer, alcohol, meat.  On a non-COVID related note, I was devastated when Scott stopped making the tubeless TP about a year ago.  Now I have to dispose of cardboard rolls again like a chump and it kills me 😂

I stop at the store on the way home from night shift and that is when I find tp and other stuff if I am going to find it.  Somewhat intrigued yesterday when I encountered all aisles knee deep in unstocked merchandise.  Asked employee if they weren't usually stocking at night and he said all the backlog was because people were not coming to work.  Don't blame them after all the reported deaths of grocery store workers.
