Well, there’s supply chain shortages and high demand with people buying them as gifts.
So it seems reasonable.

Have you called the store to ask?
Is the model you want available at other retailers?

It's unlikely they are hiding them and not trying to sell them.
My wife ordered one through work (education program) a few months ago and it took about 4-6 weeks to get one from Apple.

Yes iPads have been in short supply since before Black Friday. Only version that seemed more available is the iPad Air 4. Normal iPad cheapest $430 version goes quickly when it comes in stock

Prob due to shortages as others have mentioned and prob increased demand as people are generally staying in. We ordered one a couple of weeks back and estimated shipping date is middle of January.

Unfortunately you should have planned ahead.
