Maybe ghost stock? Stolen stock/missing stock, etc.

Their entire system is pretty bad but this at least gives us an idea if it's even worth going to a store for an item or not.

I just tried this. It works! Just use blank values on everything except UPC and csrfToken.
On an unrelated note, do you guys have any idea why some stores have inventories of 1 and 2 but show "OutOfStock" as status? Others are out of stock as well but inventories of 0, which makes sense.
No clue now.

Some 2s are showing as available, while other 2s say OOS..

Keep in mind that although some stores may show on-hands that it might be sitting in the back waiting for a RA. Walmart does not separate sellable items from non sellable.
