Good question. Walmart has been out for weeks.

I guess it’s an import thing from NOB for Ziplock brand name.

Many folks always say Mecardolibre, (spelling). Me? I either wait until I go up north three times per year, or when looking for something I can't locally or at Costcos, I go to Amazon.

Do I know the best answer? Heck no. but learning from my own experience which include checking on the local forums do alright, Most of the time :)

Sorianna had 'Reynolds' brand (as in aluminum foil) The zip seal was not so wide, bit difficult to seal (made in Thailand..) but price was right & both sizes. You might want to try Fresko in Guadalajara as they have abundance of imports, decent prices. Nice one near the southern Costco.

You will find Ziplocks at El Torito, in bigger economical boxes. Not a lot, mind. Any place else that has them, as was mentioned, are a different brand and pretty useless. The ones at Torito look like they've been there awhile... definitely some kind of shortage.

As for the comment about Thailand (?), most SC Johnson products are made in Asia. It's not where they are made that's important.

Furthermore, every Ziplock product I've bought here is not considered imported.

Surtidor in Ajijic had plenty of quart size (mediana) last week. No gallon size.

I never saw a shortage of either here.  Mostly I shop on foot around Ajijic; most Mexicans cannot afford to hoard since they live paycheck to paycheck, hence no shortages where they (and I) shop.  I heard of hoarding/shortages at Walmart early on, most likely precipitated by watching too much US tv.

I find them too "slick" to be practical and use a lot more of them than the normal toilet paper, so it´s back to the regular stuff.
They don´t decompose well in septic tanks either.

Hope that answers your question……. lol!

I hear they're used on stake outs. Poop in bag, bury bag.
I think perhaps I've read too many police novels.
