119. and isn't it just to get them to come back on later days?
The whole point is to get people into the store in the first place. Whether large or small items, if they're in your store, they're much more likely going to buy it from your store.

If you have 100 people trying to buy a DVD player for $50, but there are only 4 in stock, you might then get 96 orders for the DVD player to be picked up a few days later when they restock. Those are then 96 customers who will have to return to the store--and probably buy something else on their return visit, too (which might also be out of stock; repeat as necessary).

It really is criminal. When the Walton family (and other owners of these stores) sees video of those stampedes, they think, "Good," while counting the sales.

I hope the family sues the fuck out of Wal-Mart.
