I saw some today in a local beer and wine shop, yet! Big open case of rolls with a sign "$1/49/roll - LIMIT 3". Saw some bought, too.

The fact that individual rolls of tp are being sold in a location that normally doesn't have them is not weird to me. Heck, 2 weeks ago my daughter bought me one roll of tp that was being sold, individually, at a local CVS. They had no packages of tp but used an off brand (Just the Basics) that was individually wrapped to sell. The were $1.00 each and had 1000 sheets per roll but they were one-ply which means you use more.

It's not unusual for liquor stores or convenience stores to have household items but the mark up is quite a bit more.
