It's like this everywhere, in every sort of retail outlet; they only stock what sells fastest.
It's a vicious circle, You go to a storefront and try to buy product X, we don't stock product X, but we can order it for you. I can order it myself. I recently went through this on a set of large mould handles, I saved about $8 ordering them new on line, and that was after I paid for shipping. maybe the local retailer I tried first is over priced, maybe not, but I did give them the first shot at it.
