Great info and post - actually its a good example. That vendor happens to be closing down inventory of "last year's models" and in the midst of bringing out new models in electronics (TV's in particular). Stock could indeed be in the back somewhere and just not displayed yet...or not even received at the story yet. The challenge for the consumer is they typically don't care why...but are kept guessing "where's all the TV's I could buy?". A valid point aligned with the original post to some degree.
