>To make a very long rant a little shorter…
I cannot stand having to try to track stuff down that I want to buy. I can understand if it’s a rare or discontinued item. If it’s a currently produced item, available from the manufacturer, I want to easily find it in stock somewhere.
I do NOT like spending my time choosing an item, clicking and seeing oh, it’s only available in an 18 XXXX-Long.
I’m a bargain shopper, so I am very used to this happening with clothing. If it’s a really good deal, it’s probably not in the size you need. It will be something weird, like a 3-piece suit in a size preemie, or a onesie in a 4T, ha-ha.
I don’t like online stores that are set up where I click charcoal thinking that it’s in stock, only to see it say there’s only Small in that color. So I think ok, how about this color, nope, Large only. Ok, clicking the back button again, surely THIS color is in stock, NOPE! OMFG! (That’s “oh my fudgin’ goodness”) Just SHOW me what color I can get in a MEDIUM for heaven’s sakes!
