I've noticed the past 6 months or so that items visibly in stock (and unobtainable with yellow tape here in Ontario) are not at all accurate with Walmart's online stock availability?

It would seem that they are purposely distorting items to 0 quantity for some reason.

Store availability is not real time. It's only updated once a day.

I was in a store today and they had patio furniture blocked off (GTA) ... the same store had 0 stock, and has had 0 stock on those items for the past little while. As far back as when their summer catalog came out trying to hype up the summer season items.

There was a $1 snow shovel showing in stock, but staff said no winter stock kept out on the floor. So, I was S.O.L.; "too bad, so sad". Same issue with the shovel at Lowes!
