Does Costco in Orlando have toilet paper or are they out? Thinking about making a trip tomorrow.

There was plenty at Publix on 466 last night.
And in a week or so the reorder supplies will be hitting the stores.
It is not as if it will not be available.

So, figuring in the costs to drive to Costco, is it really worth the effort to not drive to Publix, Winn Dixie, Walgreens, CVS, etc., etc., etc. and get your tp?

You would think Costco is giving away free drugs to the cult followers......

Really? LOL, why do you assume he's going JUST for TP and why would it be anyone's business but his?

Wait till the first case of Aye Corona hits here in TV (and it will sooner than later) and everyone goes into panic mode. You think the hurricane warnings cleans out the markets, you'll wish you went to Costco for TP. Start hording your "Daily Sun" because the happy news will finally be put good use.

Yes. Stock up on toilet paper. That is the key to survival.

Top three things on my list.

1. Water
2. Food
3. Toilet paper

You've been here long enough now, you know what will be wiped out first in the store anytime there is any kind of disaster coming our way: beer, wine, liquor. Everything else is secondary.

Staples has toilet paper at a reasonable price. I got 2-24 roll packs. $14.99 each. They have other, higher priced as well.

I agree with some reasonable planning, but we’ve been here 8 years and have never been unable to get what we need without hoarding supplies during hurricane scares. Has that really happened here at some point prior to that? Just curious. I would think at this age we would all be a little more rational and thoughtful of our neighbors.

Water??? It’s NOT a hurricane or tornado. Nothing happening to the water supply. Toilet paper??? I don’t think diarrhea is a symptom of Corona Virus. Food? YES. Canned and frozen. Let’s not get crazy people.
