I placed an online order for a battery charger that was on sale and receive order verification. I question about when I can pick it up in the store and today received an email that someone cancelled it and it was out of stock. I had been at the store on Sunday and they had plenty on the shelf. I went in to reorder it and it is more money. I wish you hired people that have people skills. The sales people in the Wilmington sNC store are outstanding. Bill

    Here's the likely scenario.

    Once the Internet order is received and the store pickup option is being processed, someone in Merchandise Pick Up in the store has to verify inventory of the item is present and available for "the pickup".

    Tool battery chargers are sold in the Tool Department of the store and fairly easily found and electronically confirmed "ready for pickup".

    AUTOMOBILE battery chargers are sold over to the Automotive Center and, most likely, the MPU associate that was confirming merchandise availability did not no this informal bit of inventory stocking and display knowledge.

    The next time I'm visiting the store, I can ask how "they" would overcome this inconsistency with Internet to Store Pickup orders.
