You just said a mouthful there, brother! They are also bad about keeping regular merchandise in stock. I've learned to stock up when they do get stuff in.
I know that one only too well when going in and finding a particular flash light in their camping section(not a coleman) and you would see 5,6,7 hanging on a rack and buy one or two to hand out. Then you go back and you may or may not find the last one or an empty spot. That particular brand and style once gone never is to be seen again! Likewise small bath mats with designs, clothes hampers, and other everyday type items poof once gone something takes their place!
The secret there besides transferring inventoroies around between stores is they buy in bulk and once the bulk item is sold out... ??? where can you get that same thing again? Other items you find regularly once sold stay gone for days and even weeks for some until a truck comes in and they put stuff back on the shelves. There is no backroom inventory to replenish shelves while they do offer layaway or free shipping to have something like a swivel chair transferred to the location you choose when not instore when going to order something online.
With the software section before one store expanded to add in grocery and bakery sections resulting in another long time food store closing up during the same time the shuffle practically wiped all softwares out period! You might it online however while the inhouse inventory was replaced by PS3 and other gaming systems and the game cartridges. What does keep them going since that's one area were retail chains come and go is being able to outprice the retailers that last in those same areas by price cutting or beating any coupon you bring in.
The recommend here for software shopping in general is to do a little leg work on Bing and find who sells what for less along with media if you are not simply looking for a download type purchase.
