I just moved my business to a new location. The bathroom at the new studio has a dispenser for those big giant rolls of toilet paper - nothing for regular size rolls.
I've shopped around but I can't find those big giant rolls.
I called the leasing office; they admitted that they had installed the dreadful thing but didn't know where to buy refills.
Where in the heck do you buy those things?
usually an industrial janitorial supply company
This seems promising:
but it doesn't like Safari (my browser), it wants IE.
do you have a name and model on the dispener?
do you have a restaurant supply shop where yo ulive?
they carry those.
the actual rolls
Sozo - that's funny we found the same site originally I looked to find a Portland Store
Yes, I was hoping for a Portland store and I was hoping to not have to order by the case but heck - we need toilet paper.
Toilet paper world.
The name on the dispenser is "Cintas". I noticed some trucks in the parking lot that said "Cintas" and called the number on the truck. It turns out that they do some kind of saftey education and have nothing to do with toilet paper.
I know where a few of those are since I buy all my kitchen stuff at restaurant supply.
I'll check that out for sure!
Thank you all!
If worse comes to worse you could always I would imagine ask to have the dispenser replaced.
What the heck!?
Why those dirty cleaner uppers.... I oughtta.....
I'm calling back and demanding some toilet paper pronto!
Toilet paper, toilet paper. My kingdom for a roll of toilet paper.
We might as well admit - there are times where you would trade something of more value for a simple roll of toilet paper.
Maybe not your kingdom but.....
I probably shouldn't admit this but we have been handling the situation in a creative fashion: the dispenser opens up and when laid flat it creates kind of little tub-shelf thing that hangs off of the wall. We have stocked the tub-shelf thingy with a loose roll of toilet paper along with a variety of other toilet type supplies such as you might find in a nice restaurant.
Perhaps we should add a bathroom attendant.
Do you think that would be too much?
We buy toilet paper from the same place we get office paper. Paper is paper, I guess. They bring it all together in the same truck. Check the yellow pages for paper.
Before, we had regular toilet paper delivered by Office Depot along with all of our other supplies but they don't carry the big giant rolls.
And neither does Costco.
And apparently the big giant roll manufacturers make different circumference cardboard center tubes so you can't use their paper on other manufacturer's rollers.
Who knew toilet paper was such a competitive industry?
toilet paper competition...
there can be a great many jokes based on that subject alone
