What happened to Wal-Mart's Great Value Dark Roast?

Wal-Mart's Great Value Dark Roast
I have purchased Great Value Dark Roast for 10+ years. It is a great tasting coffee at a great price. Recently, I have noticed that Wal-Mart has downsized their Great Value coffee offerings. Is the Dark Roast gone?
Honestly, I have no idea!
I do know that a lot of the low-cost coffees are changing. Mostly this means the quality has been suffering, as companies look for ways to keep selling the coffee at the really low prices people expect.
To name two, Maxwell House and Folgers are both getting a lot of complaints about the quality of their coffees recently.
I don’t know if this is true for Wal-Mart's Great Value Dark Roast. Have you noticed a fall in its quality?
Whether it’s about the quality or the price, maybe Wal Mart is finding they can no longer sell a half-decent coffee at the low price people want.
Or it could be a regional and/or distribution issue.
Hopefully other coffee lovers will read this and be able to share their own experiences of Wal-Mart's Great Value Dark Roast, and whether they’re also having trouble finding it on the shelves.
Thanks for the question!
