Yes, everyone except Ilford has/will stop carrying R3, I know this because I had just learned R3 when I received Kodak not of discontinuation. However the date of discontinuation is Sept 31, so your lab just jumped out early is all. I still have enough chems to go through three or four more 40" rolls, but I hesitate to buy more if it just sits. Are you folks interested in having me grab a couple more rolls before it dies completely? That's assuming they (Kodak) haven't jumped their own deadline.
