Need a mask? Can’t find toilet paper? This guide will have you sorted!

Toilet Paper

Did I ever think I would be writing about where to get toilet paper? Look, it wasn’t something I expected in my life, but hey, I also didn’t expect our educated society to be panic buying it either; but here we are!

Whilst we continue to see the big grocery chains have less and less product available on their shelves, there are other spots you can consider to find loo roll. PSA: If you’re a panic buyer, this article isn’t for you.

The office supplies mega-stores even stock toilet paper! Whilst we’re pretty sure a lot of people are already onto this one, it’s not a bad back up if you can’t get any on your usual grocery shop!
Where: Newcastle West, Kotara, Warners Bay 

Local Convenience Stores
From the Foodworks on Glebe Rd in Adamstown to Spar Express on Elder St in Lambton, there’s a good chance that your local small convenience stores are stocking the goods! 

Petrol Stations
I hadn’t thought of Petrol Stations until one of the girls in the office mentioned they were always her backup of her backup! 

Some Chemists
Similar to your local convenience stores, there’s a good chance the chemist round the corner is also stocking a couple of rolls of toilet paper. 

A little google search actually gave me this one! For the Lake Mac locals or those desperate enough to have to drive out that way, the retail and wholesale food spot is also home to toilet paper!
Where: 355 Hillsborough Rd, Warners Bay
