Titebond glue

I used to be able to find Titebond glues in just about any hardware or building supply place. I'm finishing up a project right now where I've been using Titebond III and when I went to get more I couldn't find any locally. I thought it might be just because I live in a small town with only two hardware stores, but I was in Calgary last week and I couldn't find it at Lowes, Home Depot or Canadian Tire. So what gives? Is this just a Canadian development or am I just having bad luck. The one source I still have available is Lee Valley, but it just seems strange that it's dried up everywhere else.

Did you try Walmart? Franklin International says that Walmart stocks TB III.

I cannot explain your situation, but I can share my own experience. I've had that happen before with Titebond, and with Color Putty. I would be in the middle of something and run out, so I'd run into town to get some. The hardware store only had Elmer's. Okay, I'd go to the next place, only Elmer's. Went to one paint store, then another...only Elmer's. WTF? These are all stores that carried Titebond glues for years. Then sometime later, Titebond reappeared. Everywhere. I have 2 speculations. One is that Franklin had a temporary distribution problem. Or, Elmer's offered stores a REALLY sweet deal to stock up on their product, and the stores needed to move the excess stock. ????

Our Lowe's store carries two or three types of TB. I use a lot of TBIII, buy the 16 oz. bottles.

Did you ask at the store if it was available, there is a small Ace Hardware family owned franchise in my neighbourhood so I try to support them if I can. They will happily special order any product Rona or Lowes carries if I am not in a hurry.

Thanks for all the suggestions. As I said, I can still get it at Lee Valley and Iíve stocked up. I was just curious as to why it seemed to have disappeared off the shelves in all the places it used to be available. Iíve noticed too that itís available at Amazon.ca, but at a ridiculous price. Even at Lee Valley itís $20CA for a 16 ounce bottle which is way more than it is on Amazon.com. Guess Iíll stock up next time Iím in the USA.

Could the Canadian shipment of Titebond glue be stuck somewhere? :-p

I checked HDís US and Canadian websites. On the US site several Titebond products are listed with TB III at $7.47 USD for a 16 oz bottle. A search on their Canadian site returned zero hits. No Titebond products!

Why don't you contact Titebond and ask them?

I have found that many items from Amazon.com are now shipping to Canada, even with exchange rate most prices are much lower than from Amazon.ca.
