93. Sorry, MR, but it's worse than that.
Most of the time the retailer has plenty of the item. They just designate, say, 6 to be sold at the doorbuster price, and keep the rest back at the warehouse until after the sale.

Ever wonder why the name "doorbuster" has been used for many years regarding certain sales? Wal-Mart knows what it's doing by playing on people's primal fear of scarcity and their greed, and likes it that way.
