Tri-X on the way out?

The December issue of the English magazine Black & White Photography (which has only just arrived here at the bottom of the world) dropped a bombshell. "Silverprint [big photo supplies store in UK] reckon Kodak's Tri-X could be on the way out, so they've bought up a thousand rolls before it gets even more expensive (not to mention rare)."

This may simply be a marketing scare campaign by Silverprint, but they have a high reputation to uphold, so I'd be surprised if they were pulling a swiftie. While I give Lithos some smelling salts, can anyone confirm or deny this earthquake?

C'mon, Lith, wake up. Easy, boy, easy....

Well, FWIW, Silverfast also recentlty claimed that Nikon was discontinuing the F6, which Nikon subsequently denied.

I've noticed Ilford has increased visibility everywhere.... though I doubt Tri-X will dissapear anytime soon.

Ah, this rumor seems to come up about twice a year.

Kind of hard to advertise something people take for granted, I suppose.
