They may not have lied. They may have ordered but with new owner and new supplier accounts the distributor wasn't going to ship until it got sorted out. Then when it did it would be foolish for them to just go ahead with old orders at the lhs. I would give them credit for knowing what you wanted after all that and give the owners a chance in the future.

Re: LHS staff

I would like to support our local hobby stores BUT. Too many times I have gone to the store to find they are 'out of stock'. "We can order the (part) for you and we can have it here by (Friday). The thing is. I can order it myself and have it by (Wednesday) and it will arrive at my door. If I go the LHS route I would pay the same price as I would ordering it myself and paying the shipping AND have to go back to the LHS to pick it up. I know it is very difficult for any establishment to carry everything but the parts I needed were common items. After a few times of this and one would no longer bother with even going to the LHS first but to order on line immediately. (This can be done late in the evening after finding I need something after a late session in the shop). I feel for the LHS trying to stay in business and making a profit but I think the days of the local hobby store is numbered?
Lead, follow or get out of the way!

Our local Canadian Tire has a big sign up at the entrance of their parking lot stating "if we have to order it, you save 10 percent".

Cool! Can they order me a new Saito 100Ti? With %10 off?

Just kidding!
Hang time does not apply to ceiling fans, light fixtures, overhead door tracks or basketball nets!
