So here's my question:
It seems as though, when you order something online, it will check the store to see if it's in stock or not. If the website is pulling stock from the stores, how can I:
1.) ensure that, if I order online, they won't sell the TV to someone else before I get there to pick it up? For instance, if there's 100 of something and 100 people show up in store and I order online before the 100th is sold, will they say "oh, I'm sorry, I'm going to have to take that from you because someone just ordered it online."
2.) ensure that, if I show up in-store, I won't be told "ok, you can't buy this because they just sold out to people who ordered online?
Unless they have different stock for online and in-store items. But if not, which one should I do? Online or in-store?
