The order page says the hand sanitizer hasn’t shipped yet but is expected to arrive tomorrow. I have no idea how Staples is making any money off this order, delivering $0.60 of notebooks and $6 of hand sanitizer from the same order separately. I did notice that it was a Staples branded delivery truck that delivered the notebooks, so it seems in Calgary at least that they are not outsourcing the delivery service.
As someone who worked in shipping for quite some time. This is probably a shipping manager/worker who just doesn't care.

After rinsing the bottles I live-chatted with Staples online to tell them about the damaged and leaking nozzle/pump and they immediately refunded me the cost of one bottle.

Poured the damaged bottle's contents into an old dispenser.
Aw, wish I had thought of that. I ordered 3 bottles and 1 one of them had an unsecure top. Miraculously, none of it had leaked out of the bag. I poured its contents into various smaller bottles, so everything was saved.

Lol, ordered 4 bottles and 10 arrived in the shipment today, maybe it got swapped with someone else's so make sure you check your order! Contacted Staples online chat and they could only send a driver during work hours so they asked me to drop it off at my local Staples. I guess I get to choose the 4 best bottles

Thanked.
Ordered 4 and they arrived via UPS but in a Staples box that was 1/3 too big with not enough cushion inside so one side of the box was ripped and caved in. Luckily the contents were ok in individual plastic bags, but this seems to be a bad trend with how the package things for shipping.

Exact same thing happened to me when I ordered two bottles. Also got refunded for one bottle after emailing customer service.
You'd think they would put more effort into their packaging when shipping liquid.

Mine arrived with 2 bottles bagged in 1.
One side of the box flap nearly came off of the tape.
Overall, no leakage.
I agree, no packing to secure items at all.

Think of the Childre…
Mine wasn't even in a box, it was in a flimsy grey plastic envelope, each bottle was bagged but no cushion. Luckily no leakage.

WOULD SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!

Phew I was lucky. Ordered 8 small bottles and got all 8 in a box. But I also ordered other stuff.

I imagine their focus is on health care and large commercial buyers, because these were their key customers before the pandemic and will be long after it's faded into obscurity. Given the crisis in the U.S., I imagine we won't see Purell returning to store shelves for a while. I hope I'm wrong though, because I feel like the quality of their product is the best (relatively higher alcohol content, the gel is very smooth, doesn't leave any stickiness, etc.).
Update: My local Shoppers had some 236ml bottles behind the checkout. $5 each. First time seeing Purell since March 1st.

I've seen a very large shipment of 1L one-step with unsecured top nozzles at walmart back a few months ago. They had 2 types of nozzles - the older type were all unsecured, whole the wider-new version were secured.

I ordered 4 of these right in the middle of the pandemic when they were very hard to find. Have yet to use one.

We ordered 2 and they came individually wrapped in sealed plastic bags. It's the same as the old One Step sanitizers but seems to have a new label/branding. Very nice product.
