    I have been to a Target and a Walmart and they both said they stopped carrying it. Still looking.

    Try your local grocery store in the Laundry Aisle. The Walmart near me carries it. Just saw it there Saturday.

    In our local Walmart it is on the very top shelf, just above the bleach.

    OK I found some at a Tom Thumb (grocery store). Bugs me though that my local Walmart said they stopped carrying it.
