Small rolls, thin rough paper. That's Marcal!

It just occurred to me. Why would a company like Staples conduct false advertisement on toilet paper, of all things?
Why not, I don't know, an All-In-One Office printer?
At a pack of toilet paper for $4.99 versus, I don't know, a regular price of let's say $9.99, this ruse would have netted the company not only bad will but $5.
With a printer, they could suck in maybe $30-40 on an equivalent "scam".
I just noticed this was a one day sale. I still am of the opinion they had a certain quantity, and once they realized it was sold out they stopped the sale. We have seen web portals frequently do not have accurate availability information. Hence orders were received and processed for which ultimately there was no remaining supply. Then the price returned to normal.
Turns out this is Marcal - some of the worst TP on Planet Earth, IMO.
