Has anyone seen it in this region since March? Where and when? Isn't it supposed to be back on the shelves in other parts of the country? Some people on here are shocked when anyone complains about not being able to find any, as if the whole shortage has already blown over. I haven't seen any sign of let-up.

OP I'm in western Massachusetts and the last two times I've gone to the local CVS they've had some in stock (one per customer). I grabbed some both times.

Walmart has been stocking only Charmin and their own brand, here in Tampa.

I live in a suburb north of Boston and the Stop and Shop near me had plenty of toilet paper yesterday, all the well known brands. In fact, the entire paper goods aisle was very well stocked.

I've scored TP and paper towels from Office Depot/Office Max.

I’ve been seeing Scott TP in Hannaford, OP. One 12-pack per customer.

If you're staunch you don't need it, OP!
Mother and I just used leaves!

R7 - yes - the 'cleaning' aisles of Home Depot, Lowe's, etc. have quite a bit of paper products. People don't think of these stores for these items.
I would try there - and also Dollar stores seem to have some stock.

Mid-South...sporadic, but I don't drive all over town looking. When I need it there always seems to be some, but not everytime I'm in the store.

Another place to try is an auto parts store. They often carry RV and camper accessories, including septic tank safe toilet paper.

The major reason for the shortage is that the commercial toilet paper industry is completely different from the residential toilet paper company (yes, I know this sounds stupid). No one is using toilet paper in offices, restaurants, etc., right now so the commercial TP industry has a lot of it on hand and hasn't been able to retool its production for the residential market.
So going to places like Office Depot where they sell commercial toilet paper is a good idea. Maybe even restaurant supply stores. Home Depot might fall into that category too.

Price Chopper/Market32, Hannaford, and Costco in Vermont.

Now, they may have rolls too big for a traditional home dispenser, so you might have to, like, lay the roll on a shelf near your toilet. But it's usable.
Same with paper towels. The office stores have many bifold or trifold paper towels for sale. It's of course different than a roll for home, but just as usable.

My niece is a McGill student working part time as a cashier at IGA. According to her, their biggest problem is whole families coming in together but buying as individuals to circumvent the quota system on items like toilet paper, rice, etc.
On another note, she suggests patience for we bacon lovers. For some reason it is not selling well and will likely be on sale quite soon.

I second auto parts stores. Lots of people don't think of those and I've had some pretty good luck scoring TP and cleaning products.

I buy my P95 3M respirators from an auto parts store. They haven’t been taken away “for essential workers only” yet.

I’m from Western MA too. Northampton area. Admittedly I haven’t been scouring the stores because I’m limiting exposure but every time I check for TP at both Stop &Shop and BigY the shelves are empty. I just stocked up with Amazon. My neighbor was desperate so I gave her five rolls.

Southern Rhode Island Stop ‘n’ Shops have had Charmim in quantity on my last three visits to two stores.
