Instead of listing places where the supply is "temporarily" out....list those places that have the paper products in stock.
Publix on 466 last night and Walgreens on Paar drive this morning.....adequate supplies of paper products.

Which ply has the most resistance, or makes a better hat to wear?
We have 5000 tins of beans stored 'just in case' so I know we will need extra in an emergency!
According to SNOPES.COM: A risk expert in the country explained it this way: “Stocking up on toilet paper is … a relatively cheap action, and people like to think that they are ‘doing something’ when they feel at risk.”

This is an example of “zero risk bias,” in which people prefer to try to eliminate one type of possibly superficial risk entirely rather than do something that would reduce their total risk by a greater amount.

Hoarding also makes people feel secure. This is especially relevant when the world is faced with a novel disease over which all of us have little or no control. However, we can control things like having enough toilet paper in case we are quarantined.

It’s also possible we are biologically programmed to hoard. Birds, squirrels and other animals tend to hoard stuff.

We get ours from BJ's in Clermont....their's hangs down in front when installed
I turned all our toilet roll holders upside down, and moved them onto the other wall to solve tha Costco TR problem!

Just came from Winn Dixie at Lake Sumter Landing.
No problem get most any paper goods you might want.
AFter the reorders for all other types of stores the shelves will be filled once again.
There is no shortage or scarcity.
The system is not design for everybody to buy multiple times what they usually buy....AT THE SAME TIME!

How about some good future planning? Don't use of your horde. Keep an emergency supply back and replenish as per usual.

Uh-Huh....that will happen the same day folks stop for stop signs and do the speed limit!!!
