It's EU, and probably not cheap comparet to what they're used to... at
least 789 in stock at time of writing ;)

German seller Reichelt.de let me just put 1000 TL072 DIP into the
basket, but at 1.2 € / pcs.

JLCPCB currently has the SOIC TL072, but by ST, not Texas, as a "basic
part" (i.e. no extra "special component" fee),
in stock with 157 thousand... If you buy 1000 pcs, the price per unit is
~ 0.15 USD.
So I guess you could design breakout DIP adapters and have them put the
ICs on it... if you need to solder pins to them it's added effeort and
price of course... perhaps better than not having any at all.
