Also websites of bakeries. Some are selling ingredients, though I think they're selling out too.

I'm starting to see flour trickling back in stock, albeit not the full shelves we're using to seeing for the past few generations. But you have to go early in the morning. Most stores near me allow people with low risk for covid in at 8am, and even then the shelves are not full, so I can only imagine what little flour is available at 8-9am is sold out in a few hours. I'm still only seeing AP flour, but there are plenty of recipes for breads with AP flour.

Try King Arthur and Bob's Red Mill web sites periodically, but be aware that even when they have flour, delivery times will be longer. I've had some luck with my delivery orders from Whole Foods and Shipt (which delivers here from a local grocery chain, Publix). I know it's hit or miss, but it's worth a try. Currently on the hunt for whole wheat. Sigh.

Three suggestions, but/and availability will vary by where you are:
Local mills
Wholesale suppliers.
FYI, the last two may have only or mostly supplies in large quantities, as part of the problem in retail stores is packaging in usual home-use sizes.
Check by phone before your make a special trip.
