Availability of products in a store

The number and type of products available in local stores varies greatly depending on the location of the store, number of customers and funds available with the store owner. Often a small store owner will not have sufficient funds to keep a large number of products in stock

Many products are launched with great fanfare by the manufacturer or marketing company, and after a few months or years, they are no longer available in the market or a particular area due to the unpredictable demand, or the local dealer/distributor is unable to market the product.

Even for relatively popular products like chocolates, the local retailer may not stock the same brands and type of chocolate after a few weeks. So information about a particular chocolate or other product online can be useful for those wish to purchase the product in bulk
