The surprising places you can buy toilet paper

It’s official. We’re low on loo rolls. As most supermarkets have been wiped of toilet paper in the midst of coronavirus panic buying, you may be wondering where to get your next lot.

Toilet paper remains limited to one pack per customer at all major supermarkets, but even that hasn’t stopped retailers and some online stores selling out. So, besides the big four supermarkets like Woolies, Coles, ALDI and Costco, where can you find toilet paper?

Fret not, we’ve tracked down some surprising places you could buy TP (subject to availability) in Australia.
